Making the Move from Aperture to Lightroom

Hey everyone! I’m just getting back from my Lightroom seminar in Colorado Springs yesterday. So first off, a big thanks to everyone that came out.

VIDEO: Smart Collection Tip on Automatically Sorting Your Photos

Yesterday, I wrote a post about 3 features that I’d love to see in Lightroom (but probably won’t).

When Lightroom 5 came out, they made it so the Spot Removal tool was actually a brush. Before LR5, it was simply just a circle.

Lightroom Video: How to See and Manage Your Folders
