The good folks from WordPress bring us a plugin to export from Lightroom directly to WordPress (it works with either wordpress.com hosted blogs, or Jetpack-enabled self-hosted blogs). Excellent for photographers! I tried it, and it’s straightforward and simple to use. Continue reading “Lightroom to WordPress Export plugin”
I swear that Lightroom 5/6 have a render bug that affects older images. I can’t pin point it to any specific editing steps, but when it happens, there’s a huge difference in rendering between the Library and the Develop module. Continue reading “Lightroom Rendering Bug(s)”
I just found this photo in one of my “monthly best of” smart collections… Continue reading “Transience (and a Lightroom tip)”

My system of editing/culling images in Lightroom (my photo management software) involves marking images that I like as a “pick” and then rate them at some point. 5-star images are the creme de la creme (and they are far and few between, some are in the “Favorites” gallery on my website), 4-star images go to the website as well, 3-star images are “contextual” and may be included in a blog post but not stand on their own, 2-star images are nice personal memories, 1-star images are personal memories to be kept because they’re just that.
Every now and then I of course have to remind myself to apply these ratings. And “Hell” is a Smart Collection in Lightroom with the criteria being “pick” and “no rating” and the image counter indicates that there are over 2000 matching images. 😛 Continue reading “Purple Scooter”
