Lightroom Worth-a-click

Happy Friday folks! Here’s a few links and sites to check out if you get a chance.

• My Lightroom 3 Crash Course iPad app is out. This app is a short, get-started-quick video course for Lightroom. It doesn’t go over everything (like my Kelby Training Lightroom In Depth series does). It just covers the basics you need to get up and running without spending 6 hours watching training. Here’s the link if you want to check it out.

• It seems everyone loves presets. “The Hangover” preset I created earlier in the week was a big hit. If you’re into presets, check out the ones over at There’s definitely some great looking presets there.

• Adobe has a new article on Optimizing Performance in Lightroom.

• Nik Software just released their own iPad photo app, Snapseed. In all honesty, I just downloaded it. But I’m lovin’ it so far. And from the looks of the reviews on the iTunes store, so is everyone else.

• The Turning Gate has released TTG Cart CE, its new shopping cart system for Adobe Lightroom.

• Alien Skin Software announced Snap Art 3, the new version of their artistic natural media plug-in for Photoshop and Lightroom (notice the use of “for” not “in” 😉 )

That’s it for this week. Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for the links Matt. I really liked the 1:1 preview info. Makes so much sense.

  2. hi Matt,
    thanks for your informative and enjoyable blog. it found its way into my feedreader 🙂
    My suggestion to reduce the confusion between the plug-ins that are 1) fully implemented into Lightroom and those that 2) “just” offer a neat interface for sending data back and forth is to differentiate the terms such as following.
    “plug-in” for 1)
    “plug-on” for 2)
    what do you think about that?

    regards from switzerland, cheers

  3. Hi,

    would just like to give you a hint about another great iPad app that i specifically made for Lightroom users. lets you do field work and then do a complete sync with all your edits over wifi as soon as you get home. I have no affiliation with the Photosmith team at all just think it is a great idea for an app.
