Video – Monitor vs. Printer Calibration

Hi all. A while back I created a video on the non-Lightroom (but still very important) topic of calibration using a hardware calibration device. From what I can gather out there, a lot of photographers have heard the message loud and clear – use a hardware calibration device. I don’t really care which one, just use one.

Video – Upgrading to the Process Version in Lightroom 3

This week I wanted to tackle a tiny setting in the Lightroom 3 beta that you’ll want to be aware of. It’s called the Process Version.

Some are just shortcuts to sliders and effects you could do...

Video – Before & After Family Photo

Here’s another one of those before and after videos for you folks. I know these are popular because they really show the workflow and the link between the two programs we tend to use most – Lightroom and Photoshop. I thought this particular photo made a great candidate because I was able to do some very neat things in Lightroom (more than a lot of people think is possible) but I also needed to move into Photoshop for some...

Video Tip – The Missing Filter Options

I decided to record a video for today’s tip because a) I started to write it out and realized it was a very difficult to put this one into words without lots of screen captures and, b) I’m lazy and a video was much easier. Enjoy and have a great weekend. - Matt Click here to download the video to your computer. [Right-click and choose the "Save As"...
