Access iPhone Lightroom Camera Photos with PSE 2023


More and more, I am using the mobile Lightroom Camera on my iPhone to take photos. This makes it quite easy to import them into Lightroom Classic. However, I want to access these images using Photoshop Elements 2023’s Organizer and Photo Editor. PSE 2023 added the new feature, Web Elements that makes this possible. This AppTip Sheet explains my current approach for doing this.

2022 CO Road Trip – Day 14 & 15


Well, Peg and I are coming to the end of our two-week road trip to Boulder CO. We went there to watch Paige play in a softball tournament. We extended our trip on both ends to do some sightseeing and take photographs. We took a southern route going to travel parts of Route 66. On the way home, we took a more northern route touching on southern UT. Each day, we started our travel log with a short, and unprofessional video describing the upcoming day’s highlights.

Well, this concludes the series of videos and photos of our road trip to and from Boulder, CO. We were gone for 15 days and put about 4,000 miles on my car. It was a great trip. We saw some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States and came back with thousands of photos. It is going to take some time to cull them out.

Thank you for watching. Until next time…

2022 CO Road Trip – Day 13


Well, we are well into our trip home. Today, we are driving from Kayenta, AZ to Knab, UT where we will spend the night. We did not take as many photos today, but we did stop to take a couple with my drone.

2022 CO Road Trip – Day 11


Well, we are on our way home. We are in Grand Junction and stayed here for two nights, so we could be here on the 4th of July.

Well, the fireworks display pretty much wrapped up our stay in Grand Junction, CO. It was a great way to celebrate July 4th. Stay tune as we push on with our return trip home to Los Angeles on Day 12.

Until then…

2022 CO Road Trip – Day 10

Day 10 Photos

The ink below is to short slide show produced by Photoshop Elements. It is short because we did a lot of driving on Day 10. Peggy took a lot of pictures out the window as we drove along. However, for this series of posts, I have been concentrating on photos and videos taken with my camera and iPhone. As we said in Day 10’s video log, we are heading towards Grand Junction, CO, where we will spend a couple nights.

Well, that is it. Photos from Day 11 will be uploaded soon.

2022 CO Road Trip Day 5 Through Day 9


This post covers Day 5 through Day 9 of the road trip I took beginning June 24, 2022. It is a good time to review what the road trip is all about. My granddaughter Paige Hayward plays on the softball travel team, BSC Bengals 16U – Briggs. Each year they travel to many tournaments around the country. One of those is the IDT Tournament in Boulder CO. This is a large tournament bringing together 56 of some of the best teams in the 16U age division from throughout the country.

Normally, I have flown to the tournament. This year I chose to make a road trip out of it along with Peg. My plan was to take a few extra days going and returning from Boulder to do some sightseeing. Going to Boulder Peg and I planned a route that would follow some of Route 66 where practical and the southern part of the Grand Canyon. On the way home our route would follow the northern route that would include a bit of Southern UT.

This post describes our stay in Boulder and the actual tournament itself.

Day 5 – Day 9 Video Log

Highlights of Paige in the 2022 IDT Softball Tournament

Unfortunately, virtually of the action shots of Paige had to be taken through a chain link fence which definitely affected their quality. But it was either that or nothing.

Below are a couple of short video clips that were captured from the livestream camera. In the first one, Paige is hardly visible as she catches a fly in the outfield, and then throws the runner out who was trying to reach home after tagging up. The second clip is a double she hit in one of the games.

Watching Paige play was great. And the next morning we began our trip home. Look for Day 10 coming next. Until next time…

2022 CO Road Trip Day 3


Well, Day 3 was devoted to sampling as much of the historic Route 66 as practical and seeing Northern Arizona. We visited the Meteor Crater Natural Monument, the “Take It Easy Corner” in Winslow, AZ, as well as both the Painted Desert and the Petrified Forest. It made for a long day but was well worth it.

Our Route for the Day

Arizona Meteor Crater Natural Monument

Our next stop was the “Take It Easy Corner” in Winslow, AZ. This Route 66 spot was inspired by the famous line in the Eagles song by the same name. This was my first chance to capture some video using my DJI Mavic Pro. Below is a slide presentation. Due to my desire to use the Eagles’ song as the background music, I was unable to host the video on YouTube. Thus, you may have to give it a few seconds to download to play it smoothly. The link itself is the small red lettering below.

Well, that was Day 3. It was a long fun-filled day, ending in a late evening arrival at our hotel in Santa Fe, NM. Watch for Day 4 coming shortly. Until then…

I Added a New Panorama

Until next time, which will be sooner than it was this time…

Collection of My Previous Posts on Lightroom Classic


I have been using Adobe’s Photoshop Elements for over twenty years to manage my large collection of photographs and videos. In 2019, I switched to Lightroom for that task. Almost three years into using Lightroom, my workflow continues to evolve. I still use the Organizer in Photoshop Elements and continue to be a volunteer beta tester for Adobe. But, now my use is generally focused on using Elements for special projects and the unique features it provides.

Lightroom Classic’s Library module and the Organizer in Photoshop Elements 2022 have many capabilities and features in common, but there is no question that Lightroom is more powerful than Elements since its target users are professional photographers and prosumers. For the past three years I have written and published here articles primarily directed to using Lightroom’s Library module.

For those of you who use the subscription version of Lightroom Classic, you know that it is constantly being updated and evolving. Hence a few of my earlier articles may not reflect exactly more recent versions. The principles remain the same. These articles are best used by new users and reflect my own experience as I get to know Lightroom Classic and become more efficient in using it. Below is a list of the blog posts I have published over the years.

Please note, these are listed in reverse chronological order, with the most recent at the top of the list, and the very first one at the bottom.

Look for more in the future. Until next time…

Get More From Your Smartphone Panoramas


I am using my iPhone more and more for taking photos and videos that are just not simply selfies. A practice that is certainly common to many people. The quality produced by today’s smartphones is truly quite remarkable. One of the modes I frequently use is the Pano feature.

A few days ago, I went to the Redondo Beach pier to take some pictures. I took my Canon R5 intending to take most of my pictures with it. After only a few images, I discovered its battery was depleted. I had not checked it ahead of time and did not have an extra battery with me. So, I proceeded to take photos with my iPhone instead. One of them was the panorama below.

Using Adobe’s Premiere Elements, I then zoomed in and scrolled around the panorama to explore some of the details that you do not get to appreciate when simply looking at the panorama in the traditional way. Click on the image above to see the result of doing this.

I plan to explore more of the panoramas I have taken over the years with not only my iPhone but also my digital cameras in the future using this approach.

Until next time…
