Command (Mac) / Control (Win) + S copies any changes made to a photograph from LR’s database into individual DNG, JPEG, PSD, and TIFF files (or XMP sidecar files for proprietary raw files). Note: the data (change) is also kept in the Lightroom database). To automatically write changes into files (or into XMP sidecar files) choose Catalog Settings > Metadata > Automatically Write Changes into XMP. Click below to watch a 10 minute in-depth movie about this process.
In this episode, Julieanne Kost will explain how changes made to photographs are saved automatically to the Lightroom Catalog. Then Julieanne will demonstrate how to use both the “Save Metadata to Files” command as well as the “Automatically write changes to XMP” Catalog Setting to push changes made to photographs from the catalog into individual files (or sidecar files) so that they can be read and utilized within additional applications such as Adobe Bridge.
In order to define different default processing settings for different cameras, select Lightroom’s Preferences and click the Presets tab. Under the Default Develop Settings area, check “Make defaults specific to camera serial number”. This can be extremely useful , for example if you are shooting with multiple cameras and want Lightroom to automatically apply a different Camera Calibration profile to each. Click here for a video about setting default Camera Calibration profiles (and other options). (This video covers both Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop.)
Notice that in the preferences you can also choose to “Make defaults specific to camera ISO settings”

Well I spent my first week on sabbatical in bed with the flu – as you can imagine it was not exactly what I had in mind!
However, I thought, why not make use of my “down” time, to organize the images that I shot and processed using my camera phone and Instagram in past 6 months. After selecting my favorites and printing them (yes, I printed them!) in order to decide how to sequence them, I knew that they had to be shown as diptychs. (Perhaps if you attended Photoshop World in the spring, you might remember some of the early images that I showed on the Art of Digital Photography panel.)
What I should have known, was that Kush (being the phenomenally efficient man that he is), posted the slideshow for me on Adobe TV on Monday but remember, I am on sabbatical, with the flu, and I have to admit that I wasn’t really paying attention. So you can imagine what a surprise it was to me when I clicked the link tonight and saw that there were already people viewing it! Shame on me for not paying attention because, this is not a tutorial – “The Red Thread – Moments Alone” is simply a slideshow of my work. Sorry that I didn’t warn you earlier, but I hope that you will enjoy it for what it is.
