1. There are lot of different ways to review images in Lightroom, but the best way is only available to those who have a secondary display. Having two monitors cuts your Lightroom selection time to about 1/4 the time you would ordinarily spend, and that's after cutting your workflow time in half with my other recommendations. If you don't have a second monitor, it is worth the price to go out and get one.

  2. Adding keywords to your images makes finding them later on extremely simple, but most people don't do it because it takes too much time. Well, Lightroom has made it simple. With the right tools and method of keywording, you can get it done quickly. And a 15 minutes now can save you hours later. So start keywording!

  3. Collecting images for various uses is made even easier with the addition of the Target Collection feature in Lightroom 3. This is just a quick tip on how to use this new feature. I use it to collect images for clients and vendors alike as well as for workshops and examples, etc. It is a fantastic feature, small as it may be, it really is a great addition to the Lightroom.

  4. I try to stay out of Photoshop as much as possible. Why? Because Photoshop is like an addictive habit and once I am in there, I will spend way too much time on a photograph. So, my general rule of thumb is to only go into Photoshop when someone is paying me to do so.

    So, that means that when I have an image that needs just a little bit of help, some of the localized adjustments that I used to do in Photoshop, I must do somewhere else. I can do most of them in Lightroom, without having to open Photoshop, and as a bonus, they are all sync-able from one image to the next.

    In this video tutorial, I go through the process of working on an image with the adjustment brush to fix and enhance the image without ever going into photoshop.
