Now that we have some of the basics out of the way, it's time to start having some fun. In this part, I show you how easy it is to use Lightroom to quickly move groups of photos through the production phase of the workflow.

Then I take you, step-by-step, through the processes of importing new photos, organizing them, editing and fine-tuning them, and outputting them as a slide show, inkjet print, or Web gallery. I also show you how to export all sorts of files, from Adobe's Digital Negative (DNG) format for raw files to JPEGs for e-mail.
