Video – Real World Collections

I’ll be the first to admit that there are plenty of features in Lightroom for which a real-world use is not immediately obvious. I started thinking about collections the other day (that’s what I do on my time off ) and realized that there are so many real-world uses for them in Lightroom, but I haven’t seen them covered much. So that’s just what we’ll do in this video. Collections are something I use...

Video – Using History in Lightroom

This week’s video comes directly from a question I get all the time. It’s all about History. See… we have a History palette in Photoshop but Lightroom’s history is a little bit different (and cooler in some ways). First off, Lightroom saves everything! Even when you close the program down and open it back up – your history states are still there. You can always go back to any point in your editing of a...

Video – The Painter Tool

This week we’re going to take a look at the Painter tool. The Painter tool is actually part of Lightroom 1.1 and it was originally the Keyword Stamper tool in Lightroom 1.0.

A "Real" Reason to use Quick Develop

Yep, you read correctly. If you’ve been looking to make sense of where Quick Develop in the Library module really fits in you’re not alone. I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t find it very quick at all. However, Adobe’s Senior Director of Product Management, Kevin Connor, pointed out a very real use for it to me and once he did, I’ve found myself using it more lately. Click here to watch the...

Video – Desaturated Effect

The HSL/Color/Grayscale Panel is way cool when it comes to pumping up specific colors in your photo. I think the coolest part is that this is all being done to the raw file nondestructively. However, there’s a lot more you can do with this panel when you really start to experiment with it. Things that may normally require a trip to Photoshop can be done right in the HSL panel in Lightroom. In this week’s video,...
