Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this helpful video will give you a good introduction to Lightroom, including importing, the Library module, non-destructive editing, processing images, and exporting. A lot of people think of Lightroom for cataloging and Photoshop for editing, but you might be surprised by just how much editing you can do in Lightroom; in fact, you frequently will not even need Photoshop for a lot of images depending on the genre(s) you work in.
