Lightroom News and a Painter Tool Tip

Here’s some quick news and a tip:

? First up, don’t forget I’m teaching the Lightroom 3 Live seminar in Houston next Wednesday March 9th. There’s still time to sign up. Oh, and if you know any good shooting opportunities or places while I’m in Houston, please leave a comment here. Hope to see you there!

? The folks over at the Turning Gate have released some new updates for their Lightroom web galleries

? The Photographers Toolbox has a Metadata Panels plugin that extends the Metadata section within Lightroom’s Library module.

? I’m always posting stuff over on my Facebook page. Lately I’ve been posing questions about the industry and giving away some free prizes too. So if you want to keep up please head over and click “Like” –

? And the tip… this one comes from the video on the Painter tool that I did earlier this week. If you want to access the tool at any time (in the Library module that is), just press Shift-Option (PC: Shift-Alt). It temporarily switches to the tool (using whatever setting you used last). When you let go, it goes away.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by this week! :)

  4. Hey Matt, How about taking your tour to Chattanooga, TN. We’re centrally located a little over an hour from Atlanta, Nashville and Knoxville. You’d fill the hall.
