My RAW Workflow in Adobe Lightroom 5

I wanted to record this as it may make future discussions on forums, mailing lists, and even on this blog make more sense.

For those who are sight impaired or have low bandwidth limitations, essentially:

  1. Import RAW files (And I forgot one important step – rename them!)
  2. Rate them
  3. Edit in Develop Module
  4. Create Virtual Copies if want to do things drastically different – like make the image black and white
  5. Export JPEGs
  6. Maybe upload to blog or flickr using flickr uploadr
