Ever since writing Lightroom for Dummies I’ve had the idea to teach a class based on the most common topics people are asking about. Topics they are either not finding covered in books or seminars or are just not covered in a format that allows them to ask questions and learn while doing. To that end I am extremely pleased to have the opportunity to teach that exact course in an online format through the Perfect Picture School of Photography (PPSOP)!
One of my goals has been to develop my blog enough to get listed on Lightroom.Alltop.com alongside many of my Lightroom heroes, so it was an awesome sight on Tuesday when I spotted my own post in the Alltop widget on my blog!
The name of the post is Avoiding Problems + Improving Performance = Happy Lightroom User and with it I tried to cover the basic tips that account for nearly a third of the problems people ask me about. It may seem simple, but you’d be surprised how often it comes up and how easy it can be to overlook.
I had the highest honor ever bestowed upon me since I started blogging about Lightroom. One of my biggest Photoshop/Lightroom heroes thought one of my blog posts was good enough to use as a starting point for his own blog! One more thing I can cross off my bucket list. 🙂
The only way Windows users could successfully export multiple photos directly to an email attachment from Lightroom was using a (free) third-party app called MAPI Mailer created by Steve Sutherland. Well, I just learned (thanks to Lightroom-News.com) that Steve has upgraded MAPI to a full fledged Export Plugin, which removes the previous limitation on how many photos could be attached at a time.
