Whew! Last week’s post about the multi-photo picture package layout sure spawned a lot of questions. I’ve got a Q&A post to handle them all this week so stay tuned. In the meantime, here’s a few links worth a click:

• I received an email from one of the folks over at Adobe last week. Looks like they’ve got Lightroom 2’s shortcuts all in a PDF for download now.

• I know everyone and their mother has posted this video already on the web, but that doesn’t mean I can’t. In case you haven’t seen it yet here’s a link to a Saturday Night Live sketch called “Sir Mix-a-lot’s Photo Shop”. I have to say it’s pretty darn hilarious.

• In case you missed it the popular HDR plug-in, Photomatix (now at version 3.1.3), now has very tight Lightroom integration built in. I love it! I go back and forth seamlessly now. FYI… NAPP members get 25% off the plug-in price in the NAPP Discount Page.

• If you’ve got a photo blog then check out the LR2/Blog Export plug-in by Timothy Armes

• Check out the photography of Gregor Halenda. Really inspirational stuff!

That’s it for today. I’ll talk to you more later this week.

  1. Hey Matt,

    Maybe Scott should put the process shown on SNL in his Down and Dirty Tricks CS4 book :)

  2. Woo! Thanks for the note on Photomatix… I had previously tried to set up an export option from LR2 to Photomatix, but just ended up burning extra disk space AND making more work for myself. This is a lot nicer. :D

  3. Just a note – if you’re like me and like to generate a Details and Tone mapped image to composite with, make sure you change the file name in the LR2-Photomatix export dialog, otherwise when you “Process” out of Photomatix you’ll be saving them to the exact same file name and overwrite your first file with your second (at least I figured it out without too much kicking and screaming)

  6. I loved the tip re: multi-photos on one page….

    I did notice reading through Scott’s Lightroom Book for Digital photographers – that there USED to be a checkbox to enable / disable the mutliple photos per page hack…

    I wonder why it got removed in 2.0-2.3?

    Thanks for finding it!
