It has been awhile since I have posted any tutorials, so I thought I better do one. Actually, I was going to post one big one, but I have decided to break it into two or three parts.
Although Lightroom was initially developed to help professional photographers manage their huge collection of photographs, it has evolved over the years.
It has steadily acquired more advanced editing capabilities. Now more and more people use it for their prime photo editor and only draw on Photoshop CC when they absolutely must. Consequently, most of the current written information deals with the Develop Module, sometimes ignoring the Library Module or using it incorrectly, thus generating unnecessary problems for themselves.
In Part 2, I’ll cover how to quickly find your images using your assigned keyword. So stay tuned. If you found this to be helpful, please give it a star rating at the top. Better yet, please leave a comment or share it with others. Thank you.
Until next time…
The camera in your iPhone and the software Apple provides or apps from other vendors that are free or cost very little, make the above a reasonable question.
I am giving a presentation to the local South Bay Mac Users Group on the iPhone. In preparing for this, I did some research on both camera apps, as well as mobile editing apps that are currently available. There are indeed lots of options available for getting the most out of your iPhone camera.
This article does an excellent job of describing several of these apps describing how they compare.
My presentation will focus on Apple’s Camera app, which has gotten more powerful over the years as the camera itself has improved. My presentation will be part of the group’s regular meeting on Wednesday, May 29th.

I should have included this tutorial earlier in my series on using Lightroom Classic. However, I have focused this series from the perspective of someone who is knew to Lightroom Classic, and is migrating their Photoshop Elements Catalog to Lightroom Classic.
Additionally, I am concentrating on keeping this series devoted to the basics of using Lightroom. Importing your images from you memory card or your camera itself is quite straight forward.

I basically started off this recent series of posts dealing with Lightroom Classic CC describing how I prepared for and then imported my Catalog from Photoshop Elements 2019. In this post, I cover how to make a Lightroom Catalog from scratch. Even if you have a Lightroom Catalog already, you may want to create a small one that you can use to test new features as they are introduced into Lightroom without running the risk of damaging your primary Catalog.
As you will see, there are two main ways to create a new Catalog. Click on the link below to view or print the tutorial itself.

Colin Smith of Photoshop Café recently described how to edit and color grade video in Photoshop CC.
The steps on color grading were new to me, but it turns out I had posted two articles sometime ago on how to edit video using ACR in Photoshop.
The first one was in 2014. I am not sure where I leaned how to do this, but it could have been from Colin Smith. Here is its link:
I revisited the subject in December 2016. This time my before and after comparison was better. Here is the link to this one.
In the Colin Smith’s recent video, he goes on to how to use ACR to color grade a video, and give it a cinematic effect with is popular. Personally, I do not like the look for most of my videos.
By the way, I find that Photoshop renders the video much more slowly than say Premiere Elements 2019, at least on my PC. But I can live with that, because I am much more comfortable using the sliders of the ACR.
After all this time, I am curious to see if others use this technique to edit their videos.
And finally, there are a lot of other things you can do to enhance your videos using Photoshop CC, like trimming, and adding transitions.

In my initial post, I stated that I was switching my image/video media management from Photoshop Elements, specifically its Organizer to Lightroom CC Classic. In the attached AppTip Sheet, I explained how I prepared for migrating my PSE 2019 Catalog to Lightroom CC Classic, going on to describe the actual importing of the Catalog.
Before going any further in this series, I will very briefly describe what Lightroom CC Classic is all about. Please click on the link below.
Next time, we will get started in actually working with Lightroom CC Classic. In this series, we will first go over what we need to know about working with the Library module, Lightroom’s equivalent and superior sister to PSE 2019’s Organizer. Then we will move on to the Develop and other modules making up the program.
