Lightroom Before/After Video – Eiffel Tower and Plug-ins

I haven’t done one of those Before/After videos in a while so I thought it was time for another. The photo I’m using here was a photo I took in Paris last year. It was a rainy day which I actually find can help sometimes. I’d always seen a lot of the same photos of the Eiffel Tower, so I went looking for a different view. I remember seeing the movie, Inception, and noticed this really cool bridge (You know, the one...

Lightroom Video – Dynamic Watermarks (well… not really, but kinda)

I always like to do videos that answer questions I get, rather than just doing a video that I “think” everyone wants to know about.

How do you get your photos to that new drive and make it so...

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed the Lightroom Holiday template ideas that I’ve shared this week so far (and if you did, please share via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc…). Sadly, today’s the last day, but I’m sure I’ll be covering other ideas next year as I come up with them. I did save one of my favorites for last though – creating calendars in the Print module. It’s really simple...

Lightroom Video – More Holiday Graphics

Continuing on with the Lightroom template/tip-a-day theme this week, today’s video builds on what we did on Monday. We used the Watermark window to give our photo a frame. In that example, though, the holiday graphic was pretty much the dominant graphic in the image. This time, I’ve got a few ideas for you to keep the photo as the center of attention and just use smaller graphics around it. Also, in case you’re...

In keeping with my Lightroom template/tip a day for the holidays this week, I’ve got a video for you on how you can incorporate some holiday graphics into your slideshows. If you haven’t been following this week, I figured I’d do a video each day this week showcasing a way to use holiday graphics and templates inside Lightroom. Think of it as the 5 Days of Lightroom Christmas. Today’s tip involves using the...
