How to export pictures in Grayscale Mode from LR. You can use a Photoshop droplet for this, and many other tasks.
Should I save as PSD or TIF?
TIF. There are no quality differences, and there’s almost nothing that a PSD can do that a TIF can’t do just as well, just obscure things like saving Duotone mode images (hat tip Victoria . . .
How do I update a Photoshop smart object with changes Lightroom has made to the raw file?
In Lightroom, go to the original raw file and make the adjustments. Then either:
Edit as Smart Object, sending a new file to PS with . . .
Unless you’ve a good reason, I would always choose Open as Smart Object. Good reasons might be you’re running out of hard drive space, or you have an earlier version of Photoshop than your version of Lightroom.
OK, now why? I . . .
I’ve never been one who photographs in colour and occasionally dabbles with black and white. It’s very much the other way round, and I often look at pictures I’ve left in colour and think they’re rather monochrome anyway. But I’ve . . .
There’s an interesting comparison of doing black and white in Capture One 6, Silver Efex 1, and Lightroom 3 by Mike at The Intuitive Lens. It’s a two parter with Capture One vs Silver Efex and then both vs Lightroom.
I’m . . .
There’s an excellent couple of movies by Julianne Kost on using Lightroom and particularly Photoshop for timelapse movies .
Part 1 is the relatively obvious Lightroom work, but the much more interesting part 2 shows Photoshop (Extended) assembling the movie, adding lens . . .
I'll be posting some of my own thoughts on Aperture 3 soon, maybe tomorrow. But I just noticed David Riecks has some issues with how Apple Aperture 3 writes metadata and I recommend you read his article very carefully indeed:

If you've ever used iView or Extensis Portfolio, or countless other non-Adobe programs, you will have learnt long ago that Photoshop's Maximize Compatibility dialog box did what it said on the tin - it maximised the PSD or TIF file's . . .
Last week's DPI show was fun. Only doing one platform session a day, it was a lot less arduous than the three daily sessions I did at Focus, and it meant I spent my time doing Q&A on Lightroom and . . .
Maybe I’m unable to appreciate the subtleties he’s trying to express, but I was somewhat underwhelmed with both of Alain Briot’s essays on in-camera blurred landscapes (part 1 and part 2). Such images “need to rely both on color, placement . . .
No, I’m not going to write any tutorials, but Sean suggested writing some thoughts on learning Lua for Lightroom….
Getting this far with Lua has been a real struggle. I am not a trained programmer like Jeffrey Friedl. I know no . . .
So often it takes a fresh pair of eyes to notice something. As I wrote here, I'm designing my Blurb book in InDesign rather than following BookSmart's canned layouts, meaning the recommended workflow is InDesign > PDF > Photoshop > . . .
There's never one way to do something, and whether it's climbing a hill or putting together a book, it usually makes sense to have a good look around before setting out. Initially I'm going to do a test book with . . .
Derrick Story's latest podcast is Adobe Engineer Pops the Hood on CS4:
Meet Winston Hendrickson, Sr. Director, Engineering, Digital Media, for Adobe.
During this chat in a conference room at Adobe headquarters, Winston and I talk about what's happening under the hood . . .
Before the credit crunch washed away O'Reilly's Inside Lightroom blog, its content had only just benefited from a new wave of writers including Seattle-based Laura Shoe.
Her Digital Daily Dose is a not quite daily blog on digital photography with . . .
Really enjoyed Focus on Imaging. Presenting was nerve-wracking, of course, and I really felt out of practice, but the most fun was being on the stand answering all sorts of questions, most common being what's new in CS4, should I . . .
Managing Photos in the Library Module of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 is an entire chapter from Martin Evening's Lightroom 2 book, introducing Library's features and how to use them.
Let's say you have a bunch of raw files adjusted with Adobe Camera Raw, and you want to make a load of JPEGs. It's not a novel nor a difficult task - Lightroom's export function is designed for the job, . . .
Not long ago I almost linked to Micah Walter's Inside Aperture article Seeing RED. He's now doing more video and is having problems managing the new file types:
What would save my day would be Aperture. If only Aperture supported . . .
