Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is David Mark Erickson, and welcome to my course, Lightroom CC Map and Web Modules. I'm an Adobe-certified Lightroom expert and professional photography coach over at lightroomguy. com. Lightroom is an incredible tool for photographers to use to help improve and extend their craft. And to that end, Adobe has built seven separate modules into Lightroom, each one of them focusing around a different aspect of digital photography. In this course we're going to take an in-depth look at the Map and Web modules. In the Maps module you can group and organize your photos by location. In this section of the course I'm going to show you how the module works and how to use Lightroom to store GPS data, how to organize photos using Collections, how the Saved Locations feature works, and how to work with tracklogs. The Web module lets you create simple-to-use web page that can be loaded to a server so you can share your images. I'll give you a brief overview of how the Web module works and then I'll do a step-by-step demo that you can follow along with using your own images to create a simple web page. By the end of this course you'll know how to work with both the Maps and Web module confidently in order to organize your photos by location and to create simple-to-use web pages so you can share your photos with your clients, friends, and family. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basics of Lightroom, including being able to import images, create collections, as well as having a basic understanding of how the Lightroom interface works. For the Web module, you should have a basic idea of how web pages work and are uploaded to a server. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about digital photography with the Lightroom CC Map and Web Modules course, at Pluralsight.
