Going From Lightroom to Photoshop for Focus Stacking

Happy Monday, everybody — I’m just back from a workshop trip to Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada (details over on my blog, with BTS photos — I was a student in the workshop, not the instructor).

Moving Your Classic Catalog to a Different Drive

Last week I wrote about how to point the Lightroom Classic catalog to a new drive for your photos, and someone asked about moving the catalog and previews too. I thought that would make a great post for this week. Thanks, Stephanie! Now, don’t go moving your catalog around just for fun. This would only be if you had a pressing need, such as you need to replace the drive it is currently on, or maybe you had the catalog on an...
