Video – Behind the Scenes with Clarity

The Clarity slider was introduced a couple months ago with Lightroom 1.1. Up until now I’ve always told people it was the “make your photo better” slider. I’ve found out the hard way, though, that most folks want to know a little more of what’s going on. So that’s what this video is about. I dig down a little deeper into the Clarity slider, and show you what’s really going on and share how I...

Real World Slideshows

Hey everyone. In this video I cut right to the chase and show you my favorite real world slideshow settings. I figured it this way… why show you everything about the slideshow module?

In the coming weeks I’ll take a look at problem...

Video – Using Catalogs in 1.1

I’m really psyched about the topic of this week’s video. Wanna know why? Because my email inbox was filled with people asking how to move their library (now called a catalog) in Lightroom 1.0 from a laptop to a desktop. More importantly, folks wanted to know how to merge the library on your laptop (while in the field) with the one back at the studio so you could work between both. It was by far the most popular question I...

Video Tip – Sharpening in 1.1

As soon as Lightroom 1.1 was released the requests for more information on the new sharpening sliders started to flood my inbox. So this week we’re going to take a look at the sharpening sliders and I’ll show you exactly what they do. I’ll show you on a landscape photo and a portrait since each type of photo reacts differently to each slider. That said, here in the US, tomorrow is the 4th of July and I’d like...
