Hey everyone, @benjamin_warde
here, welcome back to #LightroomLessons
. Many of us are physically isolated right now, and in these times it becomes even more important to share and connect virtually. In that spirit, swipe through today’s mini-tutorial to learn how to easily share out an album of photos from Lightroom!
Here in California we’re under a “shelter in place” order, and it’s crucially important to respect that so as to slow the spread of the coronavirus and save lives. I’m very lucky that I’m able to work from home, but even so it’s hard to stay home 100% of the time because I have a four year old who really wants to run around outside. So this past weekend we took a quick trip to our neighborhood beach, the one outdoor spot near us that’s spacious enough for us to remain a safe distance away from any other people. While we were there I took some pictures and wanted to share them with friends and family who we can’t see in person right now.
First, create the album you want to share. To add a photo to an album, long press on the photo to select it, then tap “Add To”. Lightroom will allow you to create a new album, or pick an existing album to which the photo will be added.
Find the album in your Albums list, and tap its three dot menu icon.
Tap on “Share & Invite”.
Tap on “Enable Sharing”.
By default, only people who are explicitly invited can see the album. To invite people, tap on “Invite People”.
Alternately, to allow anyone to see the album without needing to be invited, tap on “Link Access”…
…and then switch it from “Invite Only” to “Anyone Can View”.
Tap on the clipboard icon to copy the link to the album. You can then paste that link into an email, text message, social media post, etc. Anyone who clicks the link can see your shared album!
When you’re done, tap the checkmark. And stay safe, everyone! Flatten the curve!
