Things were just getting a little bit too crowded for comfort over on my main web site, the photos and posts about photography fighting for space with all the Lightroom stuff.

So I set up this separate site to gather all my Lightroom activity into a single place – blog posts, less-abrupt versions of answers I’ve given in forums, plug-ins, anything directly related to Lightroom….

It means that my longer Lightroom posts or “rants” are no longer buried in the blog but can become articles and have their own section, while posts relating to each of my plug-ins will have their own tags and urls. Information should be a lot easier to find – and visitors to my photography site can breathe a sigh of relief.

If you are moving from Aperture to Lightroom, this lengthy article and the comments should prove helpful

Aperture to Lightroom

Even before yesterday’s announcement about the end of Aperture, consistently the most-visited page on this site was Moving from Aperture to Lightroom.

Syncomatic matches by capture time

I’ve just updated my Syncomatic plug-in to version 2.0. This plugin synchronises Library metadata and Develop adjustments between pairs of files whose names match or from the top item of a stack to the other stacked items.

What’s new is that . . .

One big folder?

Scott Kelby says put all images in one folder first. I want to stay with two folders is LR still appropriate?

Ignore Scott’s advice. In general, organising photos isn’t one of his strong points.

So, forget the idea . . .
