    To all, thanks for your kindness. I am presently out of town, but when I get back, and am able, I'll put something together. Meanwhile, we (Rick and I) are thinking of doing a reprise at a more conducive setting such as Fernald. Stay tuned.

    Because I am about to start to use LR, the subject was perfect for me. The presenter was obviously very knowledgeable and generous in putting the material together and presenting it. I learned a great deal, but have to say, I'm still somewhat intimidated and confused by all the details offered. While I can certainly understand why he might not want to, it would be nice to have his Powerpoint presentation posted so we can download it as a reference. If he knows of other online resources we could refer to, a list would also be appreciated. The meeting was long enough and chairs uncomfortable enough that perhaps a brief break would have been a good idea. The venue presents some difficulties in the form of servers doing their jobs. All in all, it was a very productive evening. Thanks to all who devote their time, knowledge and effort to help the rest of us. It is greatly appreciated.

    Dan, sounds like I missed a great presentation - can you pdf it and save it up in the Files area?? Will look at it on my return.

    Very informative presentation; I especially liked the explanation of the differences of Lightroom, Camera Raw, and Bridge.

  • Michael Z.

    Great presentation! You can tell Dan put a ton of work into this and did a great job of teaching this subject. A+

    Dan, thank you for your preparation for such a huge task. Lightroom has so much to offer. Your patience was appreciated as well.

    Well done. Dan had lots of good information to share about Lightroom Catalogues. Maybe it would have been better to hold the questions until the end so he could cover all of the material he had planned. I would like to see another meeting or two on other aspects of Lightroom.

    Thanks for all the info Dan. I haven't desided if I'm switching to light room but you gave me some good information.

    Always enjoy talking with everyone, and the presentation on Lightroom from Dan took this meeting over the top

  • Jim S.

    Great presentation by Dan ! Very informative ! Thank You

    February 19, 2014

  • Tony S.

    Thanks for the presentation Dan! That was a lot of material to cover, and perhaps for that reason the program drifted off your outline a few times. I appreciate the work that went into your preparation and all the time you spent for the benefit of rest of us.

  • Jane K.

    I am not able to come to the meeting this evening after all. Really disappointed. Not feeling well. I was. hoping things would be better as the day went on but is not the case.

    February 19, 2014

  • Tiffany S.

    I have a viewing to attend to tonight. A dear friend needs me more. Maybe next time!

    February 19, 2014

  • Jane K.

    That's ok. Any info would be very helpful. I'll figure out the introductory things on my own.

    February 17, 2014

  • Dan P.

    We shall be dealing with the Lightroom Catalog rather than a general introduction to Lightroom. That being said, we (the group, I hope) can try to deal with other questions.

    February 17, 2014

  • Jane K.

    I would like to know how to get started with LR as well. I have LR 4 so I presume some of the basics will be discussed as well as going over LR 5.

    This information will help me to get started with LR. I have put this off due to lack of time but after this presentation, I will feel more comfortable exploring it.

  • Sandy G.

    Also, I am interested in viewing a homemade slideshow on our TV. Does Lightroom make DVD's or what program is out there that the PC people could depend on.
    Work flow... from camera to print or DVD?
    How do you set up the organizational side of LR?
    How do I send to Flickr, Smugmug, my website?
    Looking forward to hear how you "veterans" do it.

    February 17, 2014

  • Dan P.

    Sandy made some good examples of items she would like to hear about ("... how to organize the LR catalog. Family, family events, vacations, pictures out of those categories that I want to print.... do you start over in a new year?"). Any other issues could be helpfully mentioned here.

    February 17, 2014

    • Monica F.

      I would like to know why I should use Lightroom over Adobe Bridge

      February 17, 2014

  • Jane K.

    Where do I find to upload our photos? I looked around but I am missing it. I saw it once awhile ago but I don't remember where, I would like to share my photos. Thanks, Jane

  • MIKE D.

    sorry had to cancel, have to be a granpa and save the kids lol

    February 16, 2014

  • Fred H.

    Dan, I would love to be there to listen to your sage words, but unfortunately work takes me to Russia for 3 weeks in February so I will miss out! Maybe you can post your presentation here later for me to see your thoughts on this topic.

  • Durand C.

    Like Sorrento's and OVCC.

  • Sandy G.

    Sounds like a great topic. I am one of those who can't seem to decide how to organize the LR catalog. Family, family events, vacations, pictures out of those categories that I want to print.... do you start over in a new year? I will be interested in this discussion.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
