If you are creating a new Catalog or brand new Lightroom system, you may have a set of Keywords that you have used in other applications or even a set you had left over from your archive of negatives or transparencies.
You might find that it is simpler to create or edit your Keyword list outside of Lightroom to speed up the process, especially if you need to create a complex list.

One of the hot topics in Digital Photography in recent months has been Geotagging. The confluence of Digital Images, Online Mapping and GPS devices and services such as Flickr have lead to an upsurge of interest, use and software to support this need.
Here we look at using the iPhone as a GPS device and how we then insert that information into Lightroom.

Here is a CNET story that was posted after the release of Lightroom 1.3. See also John Nack’s blog story and links: Upload from Lightroom to Flickr, SmugMug, & more including a link to Jeffrey Friedl’s site.
“Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is taking its first look at the world beyond its own photo-editing boundaries, and stock-art photographers are among those who stand to benefit.

In part 1 of this story, which was published last week, I showed how you could use a drag and drop method to open a photo directly in Photoshop and also how to open as a Smart Object. In this second part we are going to look at drag and drop to a Photoshop droplet and how to link a photo back to a folder view in Bridge.

Last month I wrote a tutorial feature on how to use Bridge as a front end to Lightroom. Staying on that theme, there are a few more drag and drop tips you might like to be aware of such as drag and drop opening. This is not a standard Lightroom feature, it is more of a unofficial workaround and as such, not everything will work as expected. For example, you can’t drag and drop virtual copy photos from Lightroom and you need to pay special attention to the warning about opening images that have unsaved metadata via a drag and drop.

Eric sits down with George to have a conversation about Lightroom 1.0, improvements in 1.1, about Eric’s photography, and how his personal methods of photo organization have played a role in the development of Lightroom’s database strategy.

DxO Optics have just released a tips and tricks news item showing how to integrate DxO Optics Pro 4.5 (and above) with Lightroom, showing how you can call DxO Optics Pro directly from the Lightroom program.
“DxO Optics Pro v4.5 is the first major photographic software application to start building a common workflow with Adobe Lightroom. We’ve long been pioneers in establishing compatibility with Adobe technologies and this is no exception. We see Adobe Photoshop Lightroom as an important platform for photographers and our goal will be to enrich that platform and provide better value for you – the photographer.

Introduction to tethered shooting – If you are able to connect your camera directly to the computer, Lightroom has the potential to let you import image files directly from the camera.
Photographs can be quickly brought into Lightroom, bypassing the need for a camera card and having to configure the Import settings every time you import a batch of images.
This is also referred to as ‘tethered shooting’ and I say Lightroom has the potential to do this because Lightroom will need to rely on other software that can communicate with your camera and download capture files to a specified folder location.
With this in place, Lightroom can be configured to automatically import these images into the library.
