Joe Barrett of The Image-space has just uploaded a new Lightroom 2 ebook on his website.
You reviewed my last book back in March last year. Thanks.
It’ a collection of over 25 tips and techniques that he’s been progressively posting. It’s not the first time you’ve seen the name either, because he also had one for Lightroom 1. As with the first book, this is free, but donations are accepted.

Timothy Armes has today annouced a small but very useful update to LR2/Mogrify, his plugin for adding watermarks, annotations and borders to images exported from Lightroom 2.
In this update it’s now possible to include any borders within the size requirements that you specify in the plugin’s resizing panel. For example, it’s now possible to export images that are all 600px wide including any borders. Until now the borders have always been added to this size.

Timothy Armes has announced the release of version 1.40 of LR2/Mogrify, his donationware plug-in for watermarking, annotating and adding borders to images as they are exported from Lightroom
With version 1.40 Timothy has added the single most requested feature that his users have been asking for – the ability to control the size of each border independently, either in pixels or as a percentage of the width or height of the image.
