Lightroom Tutorial | Changing the crop overlay

The video below has my “1st” of many Lightroom Tutorials. I plan to share a short video talking about a specific action regularly. This week we will be touching on the Crop Overlay Tool. How can I change it?

There are many reasons why you may want to change the tool, but the main one I can think of is to help out with different compositional elements. Move away from the rule of thirds and try to compose an image to one of the other “rules”

You will need a basic understanding of Lightroom for this to be helpful. Take a workshop! read more

Lightroom Export to WordPress Tutorial

Lightroom Export to WordPress Tutorial 

A few weeks ago the folks at Automattic (better know as the WordPress company) released a plugin for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This plugin lets you export directly from Lightroom to your WordPress media gallery.

This saves a step in my Lightroom workflow. As you know I want to be as efficient as possible, so I will take anything that lets me remove a step.

You can download the plugin here: https://apps.wordpress.com/lightroom/

Don’t forget you can always follow along, pause, repeat and easily replicate any of the tutorial steps I take. read more

Lightroom CC (6) is here!

On April 21st Adobe released the latest version of Lightroom. I’m excited and can’t wait to dive into some of the newest feature, especially the facial recognition. You can see me testing out this feature for the first time above.

As time goes on and I learn the ins and outs of this version, I hope to share more videos. For those of you who have taken one of my workshops, don’t worry I have not adjusted my workflow steps. I think the major changes will be when I am doing actual processing of my photos. read more
