3 Tip / Lightroom Live Seminar Day

Happy Friday everyone. It’s about 6:30 am and I just got off the red-eye from LA where I helped field questions for Scott Kelby’s Lightroom Live seminar yesterday. First off, the seminar was a huge success with nearly 700 people and it was such an awesome crowd. They were totally into it and just really seemed psyched about learning more about Lightroom. My sincere thanks to everyone who stopped by just to say hi. Anyway,...

We have an HDR crusade!

Hi folks. If you haven’t read the post below and you’re into HDR photography then make sure you check it out. Now, I’ve known about the plug-in for a couple of weeks, but blog reader Larry Lohrman pointed me to a post on the Photography for Real Estate website. In a nutshell, he wrote Photomatix to ask that the exported image be re-imported back into Lightroom (kinda like Photoshop does automatically when you save)....

Photomatix HDR Export Plug-in for Lightroom

One of the problems I’ve had with using Photomatix Pro in my HDR workflow is the fact that there wasn’t an easy way to go from Lightroom into Photomatix. Well, HDRsoft has recently released an export plug-in for Lightroom that does just that. Yep, once installed, you just select your photos and go to File > Plug-in Extras and Export to Photomatix Pro will appear. Now the company claims the requirements as “The...
