Friday Tips

As you know I always like to wrap the week up with a tip (or two). First off, I’ve gotta say thanks to all of you that came out to my Lightroom session at Photoshop World last week. It was amazing and the feedback was outstanding. Thanks! Tip #1: Here’s a neat one to use when cropping or straightening. See, when you crop an image Lightroom pops up a grid over your photo to help you crop. It’s the Rule of Thirds grid...

Lightroom Q&A

Hey everyone, it’s Photoshop World week so if you’re going make sure you stop by and say Hi. Anyway, I thought it would be a great time for another Q&A: QuestionWhen locking an image to a crop aspect ratio, Lightroom forces the ratio to match the image layout, so vertical will be 8X10 and horizontal will be 10X8. There are times when I want a vertical crop in a horizontal photo, but still want the aspect constraint. Is...

Previewing the Effects of One Change

I love this one. Whenever I’m out teaching Lightroom it’s so cool to see some of the little things that get all of the nods in the audience (and sometimes spontaneous applause). Let’s say you make some changes in the HSL/Color/Grayscale panel (really, it could be any panel). Now you want to see what your photo looks like without those specific changes. But you don’t want to see just a Before/After view of...

Lightroom and Paypal

I came across an interesting link the other day about using Adobe Lightroom’s web galleries with Paypal. The author of the post, Chris Shepherd, talks about integrating a shopping cart into the Lightroom gallery. I definitely recommend that you’re somewhat web savvy, as it does require a bit of technical know-how. However, the link does include step-by-step instructions as well as download files. Check it out by clicking...
