Converting To DNG After Importing To Lightroom

First off I just wanted to give a HUGE thanks to everyone that came out to my seminars this week in Indianapolis and Columbus, OH. I had two awesome crowds and, while I’m really happy to be on my way home, I had a blast getting to meet everyone who came out. Anyway, I’m on the plane back, and had some time to think about common questions I get. One of those questions is about converting to DNG and whether or not it’s...

5 Random Little Things In Lightroom That Throw People Off

I’m on the plane to Indianapolis right now, heading to teach my Lightroom seminar tomorrow (well, today when you read this).

Finding A Photo in Lightroom

I’m a big user of Collections in Lightroom. But every once in a while, I’m in a collection and I need to get back to the original folder that a photo came from. If the collection just has photos from one folder, than it’s usually not so hard for me to find it. But sometimes I have collections with photos from multiple folders and I forget where their original “home” is. Well, Lightroom has a way to find...

Fstoppers: Hidden Lightroom Script to Recover Lost Photos

Alright, this is one of those posts that you should bookmark and tuck away in your “I hope I don’t ever need, but I’m going to save anyway” folder. I just read an article over on the Fstoppers website by Gary Martin that looked pretty cool. The idea is that if you build full size previews for your image in Lightroom, that preview is stored somewhere. Well, what happens if you ever accidentally lose/delete a...
