I get a lot of questions on what the Previous button does in the Develop module. You’ll find it on the bottom right of the screen, just below all of your Develop panels. It’s a button that I use every day, all day and I think once you see the power…
One of the cool things about Lightroom is that you can customize it to make it your own. In this video, Matt Kloskowski shows how to use one of your own graphics in each of the panels in Lightroom.
If you ever print from within Lightroom then you have to watch this video. Spots that may not be large enough to show up on photos we put on the web, will almost always show up in our prints. Here's a great little trick (actually two tricks) to get…
Do you find yourself making the same “tweaks” to a downloaded preset? Well, instead of wasting the time changing it each time, you’ll see in the video that there’s an easy way to take your custom settings and combine them with the preset itself.
This time around, Matt Kloskowski shows you how to take settings that normally can't be saved into a Lightroom preset and fool it so that you can create some pretty cool effects and still save them as a preset.
The whole Lightroom and Photoshop post-processing behind one of the photos I took in Toronto.
Here's a quick video on how to use Photo Mechanic to look through your photos quickly, and then import the ones you like into Lightroom for the rest of the editing and workflow.
If you shoot a lot of HDR photos or just like to bracket (multiple exposures) then you probably have a lot of extra photos on your hard drive. Here's a cool/easy way to delete them.
Someone asked if I could remove the Vignette setting from one of my presets, and send them a new version. I wish I had the time to customize them for everyone, but unfortunately I don’t. But the cool thing about presets is that you can do it really…
I posted some of my Lightroom presets for the camera profiles that you find in the Camera Calibration panel in Lightroom. After I started reading through the questions and comments I realized that a lot of people didn't know one of the huge benefit…
There's a little feature in Lightroom 4.1 (the latest update to Lightroom 4) that lets you take a full 32-bit image (basically, an image with crazy amounts of tonal range in it) right into Lightroom. So instead of tonemapping your HDR image in Phot…
I've heard a lot of talk about what happens to presets that were created in Lightroom 3 (or LR2) and now used in Lightroom 4. I know a lot of people have presets that they absolutely loved in Lightroom 3 and they simply don't seem to look the same …
After the last few stops in my Lightroom 4 Live Tour I realize there was a lot of questions on the Camera Calibration settings that basically, let you make your photo better with just one click. So I thought I'd take a minute to, not only go over t…
Soft proofing has been a feature request that I've heard quite a bit over the years so you'll be happy to know it's included in Lightroom 4. This week we'll take a quick look at the Soft Proof feature, as well as one of my favorite new features for…
My main goal here is to show you the Basic panel sliders in Lightroom 4 and just how powerful moving 4-5 sliders can be for your photo. In fact, you'll see that most of the work is done before we ever leave Lightroom to Photoshop.
I always like it when new features come out in Photoshop or Lightroom and I end up using them in ways that I didn't originally think I would. Take for example the addition of Temperature and Tint to the Adjustment Brush and Graduated Filter in Ligh…
I haven't done one of those Before/After videos in a while so I thought it was time for another. The photo I'm using here was a photo I took in Paris last year.
Recently, some one asked if they could add a watermark to their photos with the current year on them. So basically, Lightroom would have to figure out the year from the metadata (probably not hard) and dynamically add it to the photos when you expo…
Let's say you store all of your photos on an external drive (like I do). Eventually that drive gets full and you buy a larger drive. How do you get your photos to that new drive and make it so Lightroom can see them? Luckily it's really simple and …
I hope you've enjoyed the Lightroom Holiday template ideas that I've shared this week so far. Sadly, today's the last day, but I'm sure I'll be covering other ideas next year as I come up with them. I did save one of my favorites for last though - …
Continuing on with the Lightroom template/tip-a-day theme this week, today's video builds on what we did on Monday. We used the Watermark window to give our photo a frame. In that example, though, the holiday graphic was pretty much the dominant gr…
In keeping with my Lightroom template/tip a day for the holidays this week, I've got a video for you on how you can incorporate some holiday graphics into your slideshows.
Today I've got a really cool print template idea and it works perfect for holiday (or any theme really) photos. There's a little bit of Photoshop work involved too, but if you watch the video through, you'll see that you don't really have to go thr…
I'm in the holiday spirit so I thought I'd do a video each day this week showcasing a way to use holiday graphics and templates inside Lightroom.
One of the tips I show is using the Adjustment Brush for softening skin. People absolutely lose their minds over this one. Mainly because unless you know Lightroom really well, you'd never know there was a skin softening brush in it. Plus, people w…
