Lightroom Tip – What If You Accidentally Delete Your Photos?

Hope you’re having a great Friday so far. I’m slightly ashamed (but not very) to admit that it’s 2:00 am and I just finished playing the new Call of Duty: Black Ops game with a few guys from work (no names mentioned 🙂 ). Anyway, my friend RC showed me a very cool plug-in that I thought could use a quick mention. It’s one of those “last chance” plug-ins and you’ll likely only use it if you accidentally lose some of your photos.

See, if you’ve managed your photos in Lightroom, it builds a fairly hi-res preview for those photos. Well let’s say that you delete (I mean gone for good) some photos or you simply just don’t have access to them (maybe they’re on an external drive that you don’t have with you) and you need to salvage something. There’s a plug-in called LR Viewer that allows you to extract previews as JPEG files. It’s not ideal but it could come in handy in a pinch so tuck this link away in your “just-in-case” folder.

Hope you have a great weekend!
