Take Lightroom on Your Next Photo Shoot

Knowing that I was away on a photo workshop in Northern California, an editor I’ve worked with for years contacted me with an interesting assignment: to write about how I use Adobe Lightroom in the field. I’ve spent a lot of time (and three editions of my book The iPad for Photographers) thinking about how ...

Photos Everywhere with Lightroom CC and Photos for OS X

While I was away on my photo workshop, I put the last touches on an article that’s now at TidBITS, Photos Everywhere with Lightroom CC and Photos for OS X (which enabled me to include some photos on location, like the Yoda statue at Lucasfilm headquarters). After writing the review of Lightroom CC for Macworld ...

Adobe released Lightroom CC today, and you can read my review of it at Macworld right now: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC 2015 review: New features and major performance gains.

Article: Sharing Lightroom mobile Photos in iOS Apps

While everyone was focused on the news of the new Photos for OS X developer preview, Adobe released a very interesting update to Lightroom mobile, its mobile companion to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Seattle experienced a record-setting high temperature of 96 degrees (F) yesterday, and with it came an unexpected lightning and thunder show. We don’t often see lightning here, so I was thrilled to sit in my living room with all the windows open and watch the display. And then I realized I should try to take ...

Macworld has just published my latest article, “Life after Aperture and iPhoto: What to do with your image library.” While my TidBITS article last week was about looking to the future of the upcoming Photos for OS X application, this one offers solid advice on just how to prepare for a move to another program.

Interesting: Lightroom Can Be Used Free

Peter Krogh dug into the Lightroom terms of service and discovered that the software doesn’t completely shut down if your subscription lapses: But other than Develop and Map, everything else works. You can make new catalogs, add new photos, add keywords, make collections, books, web galleries, prints, slideshows, exports, published copies… Basically, you have Lightroom ...

Aperture’s Golden Hour

It seemed fitting that I heard the news that Apple is sunsetting Aperture while I was attending a photo seminar. Aperture has been largely dormant for the past three years, and as I commented to Jackie Dove in an article at The Next Web, “I have to admit, on one level I’m a bit relieved ...
