In this episode of The Complete Picture (How to Use Lightroom 5 On Location), Julieanne demonstrates how to create a “template” catalog on the computer that she uses on-location. Then, she shows how to retain all of the edits made to images while in the field (including collections, virtual copies, ratings, saved output projects, etc.) by merging the on-location catalog with her master catalog upon return.

In this video Tutorial (Adding Special Effects in Lightroom 5), Julieanne explores the best way to convert images to black and white, as well as add tonal overlays, edge effects, selective coloring and film grain textures. Then, you’ll learn how to apply those effects to multiple files using Sync options and Presets.
The other day I needed to scan several hundred photographs when I remembered a tip that Kevin Connor suggested. To increase productivity, instead of scanning each image individually (because this can take a long time if you have lots of little photos), place as many images as you can on the scanner and scan them all at once. Then, import those scans into Lightoom, Create Virtual copies for each individual image, and refine as needed.
