Tip (and random fact) – Resetting Presets

Happy Friday folks. I’ve got two things for you today. First is the random fact about Lightroom that I read from Lightroom engineer Troy Gaul (you see his name on the screen when you launch Lightroom).

The Truth About Saving JPEGs in Lightroom

As I’m out on the road teaching I always pick up on areas in Lightroom that people are having a hard time with. One area I realized was saving JPEGs. Why, when, how, and what settings to used are some common questions. Why? We need to be able to save a JPEG from Lightroom so we can email, print, post to the web or otherwise send our photo to people. We don’t want to send/post raw files so JPEG is the best format since you...
