Syncing Settings and Presets Once you have edited an image and made it the best it can be, you may want to apply those same changes to other images from the same shoot or batch. The easiest way to do this is by using the "sync" option that is at the bottom of the Develop panel. When you "sync" you are copying one, two, three, all settings from the "anchor" image onto the other images you have selected.

3 Tips For Finding The Light

A couple of weeks ago my daughter and two of her friends wanted me to do some photos of them.  I was thrilled to do it.  They are 13 and any chance I have to take photos of my daughter, I will jump at!  One friend came home with us after school and the other friend was supposed to meet at our home at 4:00.  But then 4:00 turned into 5:00.  The girls spent way too long getting ready so we had to scratch our original plan of taking photos at one of my favorite locations twenty minutes from my.. - Continue Reading

Photographer Spotlight: A Piece Of Lisa Photography

When did you decided to pursue photography? I was an avid scrapbooker four years ago. I have always been on the crafty side, and creating anything was always an exciting concept for me. So, my husband, being the smart guy that he is, decided it was time to buy me a camera for Christmas, so that these images I was scrapbooking would be a bit more exciting. I was so angry with him for spending that kind of money on a Christmas gift, and for giving me such a terrifying challenge ( anyone starting out with a new SLR and.. - Continue Reading

This vital step is called EXPORTING. During the export all the edits and changes you made in the Develop module will be applied and the new version of your image is created (because Lightroom is non destructive and does not overwrite the original file).

Lightroom and Photoshop Usually Lightroom will *find* Photoshop and link up with it without you having to do it. However, there are a few changes you may want to make to the settings.. - Continue Reading
