Lightroom Q&A

I received an interesting question today and thought I would share it with you: QuestionIs there a way in Lightroom of achieving the colour boost (PoP) that we use in Photoshop in LAB mode where we adjust the A and B channels by steepening the curve gradient. In other words – how can we achieve the same ‘popping’ effect in Lightroom without the need to go across into Photoshop? – Thanks in anticipation of your...

Tip – Getting Home

One of the issues that I’ve found (along with many others) is that there is no way to link to your website’s home page from a web gallery created by Lightroom.

I’m sad to say that I just found this keyboard shortcut recently. So I’m both excited about it because now I know a really cool shortcut, but slightly embarrassed because I never found it before. Anyway, here it is. Lightroom has a before and after view of your images which most people know about.
