Although I really appreciate that you can search my blog for Lightroom tips and shortcuts, several customers have requested that I create a single, condensed document that contains the Lightroom CC shortcuts that I use most often. So, click here to view/download the document.
The PDF file is 20+ pages long, and still doesn’t contain every shortcut… If you run across any mistakes/typos, please let me know and I’ll update the document.
In this video tutorial, (Sharing Images online with Lighroom 5), Julieanne will demonstrate the many ways that Lightroom can help you share your images including creating web galleries, automating photo sharing (via Publish Services), and quickly sending images via email.
I have had several questions lately regrading Identity Plates so I thought I should repost this video tutorial on how to create an Identity Plate to personalize your own copy of Lightroom as well as brand your images when outputting them to slideshow, print and web.
If you find that you’re in one of Lightroom’s output modules but don’t have the correct images to work with, instead of returning to the Library Module, you can:
• Choose a different collection using the Collections panel.
• Use the Go Back and Go Forward navigation icons to view recently viewed folders (located above the Filmstrip on the left-hand side, in the little black strip)
• Click the downward pointing triangle to the right of the path (above the Filmstrip, on the left-hand side, in that little black strip) and choose from Recent and Favorite Sources.
You can also refine the selection using the Content Selector in the tool bar – choosing between All Filmstrip Photos, Selected Photos or Flagged Photos.
And don’t forget, you don’t have to return to the library to reorder images either. Simply drag to reposition the images in the Filmstrip (be sure you have to click and drag in the thumbnail area – not the gray area surrounding the thumbnail to reposition). Note, there are certain circumstances when you can not drag to create a custom sort order. Click here to watch the short video on Custom Sort Orders.
In this episode of The Complete Picture, I will show you how to quickly save your vector and raster logos in Photoshop to be applied to photographs in Lightroom as watermarks in the Slideshow, Print and Web modules as well as Publish Services).
Last week a customer wrote that they were seeing a decrease in the color of their images in both the Flash gallery and the HTML galleries in the Web module of Lighroom. This is actually expected behavior.
This occurs partially because the original images that you’re viewing in the Library and Develop modules are displayed in a larger color space and because the images probably have more colors than the Web module’s sRGB color space can display. As the colors are moved from the larger color space, down into the smaller sRGB space (when they go into the Web module) the appear to loose saturation.
In addition, Lightroom uses the default browser for your OS to display the preview of the image in Lightroom. If the computer is using a color profile that’s different from sRGB, and the default browser isn’t color managed, the colors will be shifted in the Web module.
Additionally, remember that your web gallery will be viewed by whatever browser the visitors to your website are using. Most computers are not color calibrated and many browsers are not color managed, so most of your visitors will get varying experiences.
I have posted 10 new movies on Lightroom 3.0 – http://bit.ly/dvjSkp
If you’re interested in the new features, check out the first movie – What’s New in Lightroom 3.0. If you’re new to Lightroom, the Getting Started series will make you an expert in no time! Enjoy.
