Editing with Lightroom Desktop (and a Book Giveaway!)

This post is following up from last week’s look at the cloud-based Lightroom desktop app. Today I want to explore the editing workflow to see how similar, yet different it is from Lightroom Classic. I’m also super excited to announce that the update to my Lightroom Classic for Dummies book is finally out! To celebrate I’ve got two copies of the book to give away, and all you need to do is leave a comment on this post...

Taking a Closer Look at the Cloud-based Lightroom for Desktop App

If you haven’t checked out the cloud-based version of Lightroom for Mac and Windows recently, it might be worth taking another look.

When I say the...

What Version of Lightroom Are You Using?

Answering Lightroom Help Desk questions for KelbyOne has gotten more challenging since Adobe dropped the “CC” from the names of all Lightroom products last month.

How to Use Lightroom’s New Texture Slider (and why it’s ​so awesome)

I saw a post this week in my feed and it noted that the Texture Slider was the first new slider added to Lightroom in four years (I guess the last slider added was the Dehaze slider). Of course, there’s been a ton of new features added since then, but as far as sliders go, I think they might be right. Well, thankfully, this new slider has been worth the wait. I also ran across this excellent post from Adobe’s own Julieanne...

May 2019 Update for Lightroom Classic, Lightroom, and Adobe Camera Raw

Today, Adobe has released an update for the Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw family of applications. Before getting into the new features that have been added, it is important to note that Adobe has dropped the “CC” from the names of Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom CC. This is because all versions of Lightroom are now only available via a Creative Cloud subscription, so there is no need to differentiate the CC version from the...
