FeaturedLightroom Tips

It’s “Lightroom Love” Friday!

Hi Gang — the weekend’s almost here, and there’s a lot going on in Lightroom land, so let’s get to it:

Freakin’ awesome Lightroom guest blog post from Lightroom Guru Rob Sylvan
The guest blogger this week on my blog was none other than Photoshop World Instructor Rob Sylvan, and he did one heck of a Lightroom post called “10 Years of Lightroom Help Desk Advice” where he shared the answers to some of his most-asked questions over the years. Such a helpful, practical post — you’ve got to read it — here’s the link. Thank Rob!

If you went to my Lightroom seminar in Boston or Philly, and you downloaded the custom presets I made for you…
Here’s how to install them:

Go to the Presets panel in the Develop Module, and right-click on any existing preset to bring up the pop-up menu you see here. Choose Import, and navigate your way to the preset of mine you want to import, and click ‘Import.’ That preset will now appear in the Presets panel under ‘User Presets.” That’s all there is to it!

Big shoutout to Boston & Philly!
I had over 650 photographers come out to my new Lightroom seminar, and I am so grateful for the wonderful turnout and gracious welcome to your towns. Such fun days — such totally engaged crowds — I loved it (and I got out before the storm hit). Thanks for coming out, and for making me feel so at home.

If you’re thinking about using the Cloud to back up your photos…
Then check out this past Wednesday’s episode of The Grid (my weekly show for photographers) where our topic was Backing up; my guest was backing up techie guy Erik Kuna, and we answering so many questions, but really dug deep into cloud backup strategies and pricing (including some that were free, or that maybe are included in something you’re already paying for). Really good stuff — you can watch it below:

My Lightroom Tour is Coming to Chicago on Monday, April 10th
I hope you can come out — I’ve got lots of helpful stuff to share, including how finally get your images really organized (on a level you’d never thought they’d be — you will so dig it). It’s just $99 for the full day (you can save $10 if you sign up now). Skip another boring day at work and come out and spend the day with learning all the latest Lightroom techniques.

Here’s wishing you an awesome weekend! 🙂



P.S. Tomorrow night is the grand opening of The Gallery at KelbyOne, and we’re having a wine & cheese reception (open to KelbyOne members) at our Headquarters in Tampa, Florida. If you can’t make it, you can watch LIVE as it happens on my Facebook page (including the interview with our featured solo exhibition artist, Mark Wegner), and you’ll be totally inspired seeing Mark’s images, hearing his story, and seeing all the Behind-the-scenes stuff. It’s starts at 8PM ET tomorrow (Saturday) over on my Facebook page (where we’ll be streaming live) or at https://kelbyone.com/gallery-webcast
