Video: Soft Proofing and Print Brightness in Lightroom 4

Soft proofing has been a feature request that I’ve heard quite a bit over the years so you’ll be happy to know it’s included in Lightroom 4. This week we’ll take a quick look at the Soft Proof feature, as well as one of my favorite new features for printing that solves the “my print is too dark” problem that I (and plenty of other people I know) have.

Lightroom Video: Lightroom and Photoshop Before/After

Ever since I first started using the new sliders in the Basic panel in Lightroom 4, I was hooked. So I started out to record a video on how I use them but realized I use them in different ways for different photos. Then I realized, there were more things I wanted to do to this photo. Before I knew it, I had a full before and after video using Photoshop and all. You gotta love it when your video starts taking over right? Anyway, my...

I remember seeing the movie, Inception, and noticed this really cool bridge (You know, the one...

Lightroom Video – Dynamic Watermarks (well… not really, but kinda)

I always like to do videos that answer questions I get, rather than just doing a video that I “think” everyone wants to know about. Well, this weeks video comes from a question that I’ve gotten in several forms over the last couple years. Recently, some one asked if they could add a watermark to their photos with the current year on them. So basically, Lightroom would have to figure out the year from the metadata...

Lightroom Video – Using External Drives

I saw a great question on my Facebook page the other day (btw… here’s my Google+ and Twitter pages too) and it’s one that I get asked quite a bit whenever I’m out teaching Lightroom. The question was basically this: let’s say you store all of your photos on an external drive (like I do). Eventually that drive gets full and you buy a larger drive. How do you get your photos to that new drive and make it so...
