A Handy Tip, And An Update On My New Lightroom Classic Book

Hi, gang and happy Friday. Coupla quick things: (1) Lots of folks asking when am I going to write a version of my Lightroom Book with all the new stuff in the Lightroom Classic? (including the new Profiles and all). Good news – I already did, and it’s on-press right now! (Whoo hoo!) Check out the trailer below: You can pre-order yours right now at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, and be the first to get your copy. (2)...

Lightroom’s “Hidden” Auto Settings

Happy Tuesday, everybody. Great video today from Benjamin Warde as he uncovers some of the ‘hidden’ Auto features of the Basic Panel (beyond just clicking the Auto button). You gotta check it out (and the video is, as always, under 60-seconds). 🙂 Great stuff, right? Thanks, Benjamin. 🙂 Here’s to a rockin’ Tuesday! Best, -Scott P.S. I’ll be in the Cincinnati/Covington, KY area next with my full-day...

Managing Develop Presets After the 7.3 Update to Classic

The latest update to Lightroom Classic has a lot to love, as Scott shared yesterday. I think the profiles are a huge step forward.

How to Make Lightroom’s Improved “Auto” Button Even Better!

Hi, gang and greetings from Washington DC (my family and I took a walk down Pennsylvania Avenue Saturday with about 800,000 other folks). 🙂 By the time you read this though, I’ll be in Atlanta for my seminar today (well, that’s the plan anyway), and I’m delighted to have over 300 photographers spending the day with me here learning Lightroom. I’ll be in Milwaukee on Wednesday with the seminar – maybe...

Making Use of the Copy Name Field with Virtual Copies

I received a question from someone wanting to know how to rename their virtual copies the other day, and thought it would make for a useful post to share with you all. The short answer is that you can’t rename your virtual copies because a virtual copy only exists in the catalog as an additional set of processing instructions.
