Friday Tip – Virtual Copies

In every issue of Photoshop user magazine you’ll find a section called “Darkroom” that is totally dedicated to Photoshop Lightroom. A couple days ago I was writing an article for Darkroom on virtual copies and found a feature added in Lightroom 1.1 that I hadn’t used yet (by the way, you can find a video on virtual copies here). See, once you created virtual copies there really wasn’t any quick way to...

Friday Tip – Full Screen View

Happy Friday folks. I just taught a Lightroom class yesterday and got a great question that I’m turning into a tip. I kept looking at my photos in full screen view and I just take that shortcut for granted because I do it so much. Finally, some one asked me how I keep doing that and I heard a bunch of “Yeah’s” in the audience. It’s really easy. When you’re working on your photos and you want to see...

Yep, it’s a special special day. Friday… It’s a long weekend for me and I’m excited so I figured I’d squeeze two tips in. Here goes. Tip #1First, if you’re working with the Tone Curve and you want to reset the curve, or the sliders below the curve, forget about trying to drag them to their original places on the curve.

Friday Tip – Upsizing in Lightroom

I was just looking through a copy of Mikkel Aaland’s Photoshop Lightroom Adventure and I learned a cool tip that made me think of upsizing in a different way. Until now, if I’ve had to upsize a photo I’ve always gone to Photoshop to do it, mainly because I could control the interpolation method used to upsize. However, after reading through his book I learned that Lightroom (File > Export) uses the Lanczos kernal...
