Video – Target Collection Coolness

OK, if you’re into using Collections then I’ve got a really cool tip for you this week. They’re called target collections and they work in Lightroom 2 and Lightroom 3. It’s a different (and more convenient) way to add photos to a collection that you’ve already created. In fact, it actually makes a keyboard shortcut available to you for adding photos into a selected collection instead of making you drag...

Video – Anatomy of a Lightroom Preset

I thought it would be cool to take a quick look at the anatomy of a preset. What goes on behind the scenes as I come up with a preset and then what kind of things to take into consideration when you’re actually saving the preset itself.

This is another one of those times where I started to write a tip down and realized it was so much easier to show you in a video. This is one I came across while preparing a slideshow last weekend. I wanted to move the order of the photos and let’s just say, I had a small problem. I’ll show you what happened and what I realized the trick is for reordering your photos.

Video – Lightroom Before/After for Black and Whites

This week I’m heading straight to the request lines for Lightroom Killer Tips. A couple of weeks ago some one requested a before/after video on black and white conversions. It’s actually much easier than most people think, but there’s a few tricks to the whole process so I figured I’d share how I do it. Enjoy! NOTE: I’m adding this after reading some of the comments. I personally use a plug-in from Nik...
