I’ve been writing and teaching about Lightroom in all its forms for many years and have content strewn about the web. I’ll be using this space to connect more people to that content as well as share new tips, techniques, tricks, solutions to problems, and more. I welcome ideas and suggestions for topics as so much of what I have learned over the years originated in someone asking a question, so don’t be shy.
I’d like to start by sharing a video of my favorite zooming tips in Lightroom Classic, and a reminder that the Lightroom Virtual Summit is underway right now. You can still register and watch content for free, but it ends tomorrow (you can get lifelong access with the VIP pass though).
I hope you find that helpful, and please stay in touch!
Hi Rob, I just watched a few LR Summit 2021 presentations, your Day 4 "Understand & Maximize LR to PS Workflow"; I also watched a Ben Willmore session similar to yours. The prime reason for the viewing is because I do have a problem understanding what is happening in "my" LR>PS>LR workflow. I use "virtual copies VC" in that once I import a raw file "nef" into LR, before I do anything to that file I create a VC-01. It is this VC-01 that I edit in LR. Then if I want to bring that into PS I do the "Edit in PS2021.." andI choose "Edit a copy withLR adjustments. Things get confusing when I do a PS "Save". Now I have in LR the original Raw file (Nef), my 1st virtual copy (VC-01) and a PS exported or saved tiff file. If I want to use my LR VC-01 to do more editing like say Topaz Studio, wanting to keep my VC-01 edits, I make a virtual copy of VC-01, thus now I have VC-02 and send that to Topaz. It's a "rats nest" as you can see. You mention on your LR Summit 2021 video about details notes for your LR>PS>LR workflow, any chance I get get a copy of those notes. I do not want to get a summit VIP pass because only a few of the sessions interest me in my photography, plus over the many years I have been photographing I have bought numerous videos, tutorials that I end up not having time to review. All the best Rob, that was a great LR Summit 2021 session that I will review again before the time is up. In case you want to contact me my e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Rob, I've been watching the Lightroom Summit this year from the UK. I found your teaching videos SO helpful. You teach clearly and at a speed which makes it possible to take information in as you go along, rather than rushing through. Your knowledge and photographic skill and your love of what you do shine through your teaching. Thank you so much. I have learned a lot and have been inspired to get playing and learning...
