Let’s say you’ve had Lightroom and Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4 working happily side by side on your Windows machine, and you decide to upgrade to CS5. Now Lightroom sees CS5 as the primary external editor and you proceed happily on your way.
Hello from Pre-con day here at Photoshop World! Just wanted to pass along a quick tip to anyone on their way here from another time zone. Set your camera’s clock to Vegas time http://bit.ly/OcHHq or fix it in Lightroom later http://bit.ly/3ujmb
Lightroom is often referred to as a “metadata editor,” meaning that the work you do in Lightroom isn’t applied to the pixels in the source photo, but rather is saved as a set of metadata instructions (inside the catalog file) that are only applied to copies of the source photo during any type of output. Everything you do inside Lightroom, from adding keywords to making tonal adjustments, is recorded into Lightroom’s catalog file.
