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 it hadn’t been so cold here, I’d probably make a joke about the first shoots of spring – but we’re now seeing the first hints that Lightroom 6 is coming.
Adobe always prioritised Lightroom Mobile’s iOS version – iOS is disproportionately dominant among Lightroom users – but they’ve always said Android was planned. It’s just been released for Android phones.
Adobe have just announced the release of their Lightroom plugin to import Aperture and iPhoto libraries.
I’ve just uploaded the next version of ListView. The zip file also includes an Excel add-in that can send data directly from Excel to Lightroom. Is there an easier way to get external metadata into Lightroom?
You can have an Aperture-like project structure providing you don’t make the mistake of thinking Lightroom folders are Aperture projects.
Visitor statistics in the wake of Aperture’s demise
Lightroom 5.5 brings a hugely-surprising – and very welcome – change to how Lightroom behaves once you stop subscribing or after a trial ends.
Even before yesterday’s announcement about the end of Aperture, consistently the most-visited page on this site was Moving from Aperture to Lightroom.
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 . . .
Scott Kelby says put all images in one folder first. I want to stay with two folders is LR still appropriate?
Camera Raw 8.5 has a nice addition to the graduated and radial filters, and it’s a fair bet to say that this will soon come to Lightroom too.
Hopefully the site’s new look has settled down now. Do say if there’s anything wrong.
I’ve also just removed the “Elsewhere” section which showed recent posts on other good Lightroom sites. I’ll restore it if people say it was useful, but . . .
Maybe the most common response to yesterday’s announcement of Lightroom Mobile has been annoyance at it being tied to a subscription to Adobe’s Creative Cloud. I won’t defend that other than by saying that it was pretty inevitable given Adobe’s . . .
Late September Adobe’s Tom Hogarty demonstrated a Lightroom app on the iPad, and a couple of months ago what looked like a draft announcement made a brief appearance on Adobe’s web site. It was promptly removed, but not before people . . .
Coming soon to my ListView plug-in, automatic updating from Excel to Lightroom. Have you ever seen an easier way to get text data into Lightroom?
I’m going to post something rather interesting later – a video showing Excel writing directly to Lightroom without any text files – but the other week I read an article on the BBC web site’s responsive redesign and so before . . .
