Lightroom Tips

Weekly Worth-a-click

Here’s a few links worth checking out while you’re web surfing today:

• Tom Hogarty (Lightroom Product Manager) has a “Meet the Lightroom Team” video up on his blog. This time around he’s featuring Andrew Rahn.

• Scott Bourne featured this site in his “Favorite online places to get more info about photography” post. Now I realize you’re already here so you don’t need a link but the rest of the article is worth reading because there’s some cool links as well.

• Kubota Imaging Tools has announced the RPG SpeedKeys keyboard for Lightroom. I was able to demo one of the RPG key’s keyboards a while back and love it. Its for all those people that ask “Isn’t there a keyboard shortcut for [insert your favorite command here]?”. You can even program keys for presets and lots of other stuff. The only problem I’ve had with it is the price but if you’re a working
pro and you save 15 minutes a week with it you’ll get your money back pretty quick. Here’s a youtube video to see more.

• I get a lot of questions about watermarking photos from within Lightroom – especially when websites are concerned. Sean McCormack did a quick little tutorial on how to use plug-in developer, Timothy Armes’, LR Morgify plug-in to actually watermark photos for your Lightroom web gallery. It’s a little clunky (not because of Sean but because LR just doesn’t have this feature built in) but I’ve got to admit, its one of the best options I’ve seen.

Have a great day!
