Lightroom Tip: The Super Awesome Resetting-Multiple-Sliders Tip

Happy Easter weekend to everyone. I don’t know about you but I’m getting the heck out of work today as early as possible to go eat fish. Okay, maybe not to eat fish (I don’t like fish) but I’m still getting out of here ASAP!. Anyway, on to the tip. So, you may or may not know that if you double click a slider in Lightroom it resets that slider to 0 (it’s default setting, but that’s not the tip). But...

My First Air-to-Air Photo Workshop with Moose Peterson

Let me just start out by saying do not attend one of these workshops. If you do, you will absolutely get hooked. I know I just did … I’m kidding of course. This past weekend was one of the best times I’ve ever had shooting. Moose Peterson invited me out to spend the day at one of his Air-to-Air photo workshops. My wife tells me that I’ve had an ear-to-ear smile on my face ever since. I arrived early Saturday...

Lightroom 4 Tip – Blacks and Whites

Here’s a cool little tip that’s actually been around in Lightroom for a while now, but it makes MUCH more sense with the renamed sliders in Lightroom 4. Basically, I get asked what the whites and blacks sliders are for a lot. I use them to set the white and black point in the photo. Usually, you’d think you have to turn on the highlight and shadow clipping warnings (by pressing J) to use them but there’s...

Why I Don't Backup My Photos Using Lightroom

If you’ve used the Import dialog in Lightroom, you’ve probably noticed an area under File Handing called “Make a Second Copy To:”. This is Lightroom’s way of letting you make a backup of your photos as you import them. That way you can get your import and your backup all done at once.
