Lightroom Q&A Day

Time for another round of Q&A directly from the comments here on the website: Q. Matt, I’ve been following your site for a while now and have become curious about what your develop preset menu looks like, i.e., how do you manage the thousands of presets you seem to have? A. Unfortunately I don’t have a very good management scheme. If you saw the video from last week on Managing Presets you saw my Presets panel and you...

Tip – Unlimited Undos

Most of you use Photoshop right? That means you’re probably used to the fact that Photoshop gives you 20 undos by default. So if you do more then 20 things to your photo, Photoshop drops the earlier ones and you’ll eventually not be able to undo (you’d basically have to start over if you needed to get back). Now you can change that in Photoshop’s Performance preferences but what about Lightroom? How does it...

Also, after you download the presets you’ll see...

Tip – Press H to Hide the Adjustment Brush Pins

So as new things come into my head, my mind must...

Q&A Day

As you know I get lots of questions through the comments here on the site so I’m picking off a few from the list to answer. Here goes: Q) After removing the beta profiles, I see profiles for Camera D2X Mode 1,2, 3 (for Nikon only) and standard Camera profiles like Landscape, Neutral, Portrait etc. I use Nikon D90. Should camera profiles for D90 appear instead of the D2X? Or should I use standard Camera profiles like Landscape,...

Tip – Lightroom PSDs and Drive Space

I’m going back nearly a year and pulling an oldie-but-goodie tip. The reason is because I’m not so good about following my own tips so I figured a few of you may have forgotten about this one too. It’s the tip about deleting your old PSD files. I sat down to clear some drive space today and used my own tip and I wound up getting rid of 1.2 Gig. Apparently I hadn’t done this in a while Now, I’ll admit...
