Finding A Photo in Lightroom

I’m a big user of Collections in Lightroom. But every once in a while, I’m in a collection and I need to get back to the original folder that a photo came from. If the collection just has photos from one folder, than it’s usually not so hard for me to find it. But sometimes I have collections with photos from multiple folders and I forget where their original “home” is. Well, Lightroom has a way to find...

Fstoppers: Hidden Lightroom Script to Recover Lost Photos

Alright, this is one of those posts that you should bookmark and tuck away in your “I hope I don’t ever need, but I’m going to save anyway” folder.

My Recapped Thoughts on “Lightroom Only” Month

Hi folks! Well the dust has settled and my week of traveling is over so I’m finally getting a chance to sit down and write the recap on Lightroom Only month. Overall, I enjoyed it. Because of my day job at KelbyOne.com, it was incredibly hard to keep up with the month (which is why I only did 4 out of 5 weekdays each week – I needed a day off). But I have to say that writing those posts, and reading your comments gave me...

The Final Day of “Lightroom Only” Month

Whooops! Well, I goofed. I posted this early this morning. I even got up early to write it. But sadly, in my tired state, (yeah, I’ll blame it on fatigue) I forgot to categorize it so it showed up on the home page. Sorry Welcome to the final day in my self-project-ish, month-long postings of images I’m only using Lightroom to edit. If you’re just coming in to reading this and haven’t read the original post...
