Lightroom User Group - Tips and Tricks!

Join us on Thursday, February 28th for this month's Lightroom User Group meeting.  I will be presenting on a huge grab bag of Lightroom tips and tricks that can make your work in Lightroom faster, easier, more fun, more advanced, and just plain different.  I make you this solemn promise: no matter how expert a user you are, I will show you something you didn't know before.

We'll be ranging all over the application, so it's hard to summarize what we'll be talking about, but one area of focus will be customizing the Lightroom UI.  Another area we'll spend some time on is useful (and sometimes hidden) keyboard shortcuts.  Yet another area will be little tips for working most effectively in the Develop module.  And so on.

Also, because this month's presentation will focus on lots of little things, instead of one big thing, we'll try to keep it very casual and open, so bring your thoughts and questions!

We'll have pizza and socializing starting at 6:30, and we'll start the presentation at 7:00.  As always, limited parking will be available in the Adobe garage, and street parking is usually quite easy.  Hope to see you there!

P.S.  If you're new to Lightroom, you might find it useful to watch this recording of our very first user group meeting.  In just one hour I describe everything that you really need to know in order to start using Lightroom with confidence.

    The session was a valuable reminder that there are more ways to interact with LR than we can imagine - and most of them are very helpful to our workflow and presence. I liked the branding reminder to start, as well.

      Kirkman, I just wanted to take another opportunity to thank you for your presentation last month. The techniques I learned have had a hugely positive effect on my workflow.

    Hey Everyone, thanks for coming last night! I have posted a recording of last night's meeting. I have also posted a recording of the presentation that Kirkman Amyx gave to the group in January. The recordings are available on the "Discussions" page (go to the Discussions page and click the "All Recording Meetings" link).

      Thank you Benjamin, I really appreciate all that you taught us last night. I'm so impressed that even though the designated time ran out- you stayed and continued with your teaching and you stayed even longer to answer all of our many individual questions! Thank you!

    It would be nice if you had vegan options.

      There is usually salad with the pizza.

      Thank you- good idea

      February 28, 2013

    • Sako H.

      Or you can park in Adobe's parking lot for free. You justn have to be validated when you check-in.

    Thanks for a very informative evening. Amazing how quickly the time goes by. We could have probably gone twice as long and there would still be plenty for Ben to show us. Keep up the good work.

    Though I'm a longtime Lightroom user, I still picked up a bunch of tips and tricks! Great stuff. Thanks, Benjamin, for sharing some of what's in your head. I only wish we'd made it through your whole list!

  • Kate J B.

    Excellent tips, there wasn't enough time to absorb it all!

  • Kyle M.

    Great refresher session for basic tips and tricks with a great look at some lesser known ones. Command shortcuts and interface/file handling customization can drastically improve workflow efficiency.

    February 28, 2013

  • Sako H.

    Took quite few notes on tips. Very fruitful night. Good audience too. Learn lots from them also. I always enjoy attending this user group. Thank you for having this meeting.

    Will this be available to view via the web, either live or after?

  • Chris D.

    Too basic for me, though could be great for others. Let's have advanced or creative topics.

    February 28, 2013

    • Sharad M.

      What do you recommend Chris? What are some topics that you'd like for a future meetup?
