Video – Creative Printing

Ever create your own printing templates in Lightroom? If you haven’t, then this video is a must-see. There are some really eye-catching things you can do when it comes to laying out your prints. Sure, everyone has seen one photo per page and how much can you really do with that, right? But you’re not restricted to just one photo per page. You can put several photos on a page and control just about every aspect of how they...

Even when you close the program down and open it back up – your history states are still there. You can always go back to any point in your editing of a...

Video – The Painter Tool

This week we’re going to take a look at the Painter tool. The Painter tool is actually part of Lightroom 1.1 and it was originally the Keyword Stamper tool in Lightroom 1.0. It was pretty cool then, but in 1.1 you can now “spray” on things other than keywords like Metadata, Develop Presets, and any type of labels or ratings. It’s actually very clever in the way it works and once you start spraying it’s...
