    Lightroom Tips

    So I'm no expert on Lightroom. I've been looking around for some resources on expanding my bag-o-tricks. I'd love to hear some of your editing tips. I'm more interested in editing info than workflow, but share whatever tips you guys got. If this takes off I can update this post to contain all the info.

    ===================== Editing Tips =======================

    For starters I found these last night. Bear with the beginnings as they're a little slow but I picked up some cool tips.

    ==================== Workflow Tips ======================

    I've downloaded some vids from Lynda and Kelby Training. If anyone is interested I can upload these or just share what other tips I pick up.

    I would love those videos. I feel like I am so lost in lightroom sometimes and I haven't had a ton of time to just sit and use it like I would prefer to do.

    I LOVE lightroom. I became addicted to it a couple years back when it first came out... I use it all the time to color correct my 3D renderings. I cant live without it anymore.

    Even though I feel comfortable in LR I would still like some of these videos as I know there are tons of features I dont use. They would be great for an upcoming time in an airport. I can host if need be. PM me.

    My thoughts exactly. I feel very comfortable in Lightroom but even the first video taught me a few new things. I do, however, find that Lightroom runs considerably slower on my machine than Photoshop does, just one of the reasons I end up doing most PP in Photoshop instead.

    Is there a preference for LR 2 vs 3 videos? I have the Lynda set for both.

    I'm a big fan of LR. One tip/trick: download plugins to make your life easier.

    His plugins for Picasa and Facebook work perfectly.

    ok this is killing me - when i change a photo around (colors, levels, whatever) it stays changed in lightroom, but whenever i export it to my desktop none of the changes stay. i've tried googling but i don't think i'm wording it properly. how the hell do i do this, is it not exporting as a catalog?

    edit: i just downloaded the facebook export plug in. will changes stay permanent if i export through that?

    edit 2: i am a retard
