Lightroom Video: The Previous Button and What It Does

I get a lot of questions on what the Previous button does in the Develop module. You’ll find it on the bottom right of the screen, just below all of your Develop panels. It’s a button that I use every day, all day and I think once you see the power of that simple button you’ll find it’s one of the best kept secrets inside of Lightroom....

Lightroom and Photoshop Before/After Video – Toronto Skyline Photo

The other day, during my seminar in Toronto, I showed the skyline photo I took the night before. Well, after the seminar some one came up and said they wished I showed how I processed the photo during the day. See, I showed them the photo but didn’t go over what I did. I actually didn’t do too much to it, so I thought I’d do a quick video. I even go over the camera settings, the lens, focal length, where the photo...
