Friday Video Tip – The Previous Button

Like a lot of folks I’ll be gearing up for the big game this weekend. My Tampa Bay Bucs didn’t make it so I’ll probably have to go with the Giants (I lived in New Jersey until I was 18).

Video – Processing Panos in Lightroom

As promised, here’s a video on how to process your panos in Lightroom. The other week, I created a video tip that showed you how to manage any panos you shoot in Lightroom with Stacks (also works great for HDR). This time, I’m continuing that and showing you how to take those raw files and process them with a pano in mind (it’s really a lot like processing a regular photo with just a small change at the end)....

Video – Panoramas, HDR, and Lightroom

Managing Panoramas (henceforth known as panos) and HDR photos in Lightroom is an important step in making your life a lot easier if you like that type of photography. See, I love to shoot panos.
