It’s Lightroom Optimize-Your-Catalog Day

Well, it’s the end of the year and this is a great time to optimize your Lightroom catalog. I know a lot of you organize Lightroom by year, so you’ll be starting out with a brand new catalog tomorrow for 2014. But for me personally, just because 1 day goes by, doesn’t mean I don’t want the photos I may take next week to be right next to the photos I took last month. One day on the calendar doesn’t change...

Enhancing Landscape Photos Webcast with Lightroom and onOne Software

Hey everyone. I’m really psyched to be doing a FREE webcast today with onOne Software. They just released Photo Suite 8 and some of the effects in it are so good that I’m going back and re-editing old photos. So at 12pm ET today, I’m going to show my workflow between Lightroom and Perfect Photo Suite (mostly Perfect Effects). I’ll start from the original unedited photo and take you all the way through the...

Lightroom Tip: The Color Sampler Tool

You’ll notice a few tools in Lightroom that have a Color Picker built right inside of them. One place is in the Split Toning panel in the Develop module. Also, the Graduated Filter, Adjustment Brush and Radial filter all have them so you can paint or target a specific part of the photo to have a color tint added to it. Here’s an example of the color picker (circled below). As you’d expect, when you click to see the...

Behind the Scenes: New York City Long Exposure

I’m in New York this week for the annual PDN PhotoPlus Conference and brought my camera along in case I got the chance to shoot. Well, if you didn’t know already, I’m a sucker for a good long exposure scene. For me, anything with a strong (and not moving) foreground and a cool background, along with some moving water, makes a great long exposure photo.

Lightroom 5 And The Creative Cloud Q&A

Over the last few months I’ve seen more and more people subscribe to the Creative Cloud. Partly because everyone who went to Photoshop World got a free subscription for 1-year and partly because Adobe just announced a photographers bundle where you get Lightroom and Photoshop for $9.99/month. Anyway, since that’s happened, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what to do if you already have Lightroom installed...

Bit Depth for Photographers: Download A Free Article From Lightroom Magazine

Every time I teach a seminar or workshop I hear raves reviews about Lightroom Magazine. So I thought I’d share one of the latest articles from Issue #7 of the magazine (which just came out about a week or so ago). It’s from Laura Shoe and it’s on a topic that I hear plenty of questions about – Bit Depth. We have choices for 8-bit images, 16-bit images, and 32-bit images. What’s it all mean and how does it...
