As June comes to a close, photographers are wrapping up a busy month of posing, shooting, and editing wedding photos. For the rest of us, it means we’ve depleted our gift budgets and have a phone full of first dances, fine china, and sometimes-awkard toasts. Regardless of your skill level, the onset of true summer probably means you’ve got a pile (so to speak) of photos laying, just waiting to be categorized and organized — an arduous task that will surely take hours of laboring, right?


When CreativeLive instructor and Lightroom expert Jared Platt was here for his Advanced Lightroom Workflow course, we challenged him to show us just how little time it can take to get your pictures in order and in a tasteful, presentable album. And, in just five minutes, he completely met the challenge, creating a polished, pretty piece — in under five minutes.

Don’t believe it? Watch Jared pull together a complete wedding photo album from start to finish in Lightroom in less time than it takes most of us to pick what we’re going to buy from the registry.

Lightroom isn’t just for wedding photographers, either. Digital scrapbooking has never been easier or more customizable than with this software.  Want to speed up your workflow and organize your photos? Get even more album ideas and inspiration for embellishing them in Jared’s upcoming Lightroom for Scrapbookers, on June 25, 26, 27th.
