  • Surface 3 on Vacation

    I’ve had my Surface 3 (4GB of RAM model) since the day it was released, use it heavily daily for both work and home, and love it.  This past week it has taken its first road trip, vacation, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Devices, Devices, Devices Replacing my laptop on a trip isn’t an easy […]

  • How I Use Lightroom: Collect and Share

    In the first post in this series I discussed importing your photos into Lightroom and explained how I have Lightroom configured to import into a nicely organized, folder structure based on the import date. So you’d think I’d use this all the time, right?

    How I Use Lightroom: Getting Photos Out

    One of the first hurdles users new to Lightroom run into is how to get to the images they have edited. It’s common to think I imported them to the My Pictures folder, so I’ll just use Windows Explorer to grab a copy.

  • How I Use Lightroom: Taking Out the Trash

    In the previous post I described how I use the Import window. As I mentioned, I don’t exclude any photos at that stage. I bring everything in and then quickly make a pass where I figure out which need to be deleted.

  • How I Use Lightroom: Getting Photos In

    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is an excellent piece of software I’ve recommended to many of my friends who have been bitten by the photography bug. It catalogs and organizes all of my photos, allows me to quickly and efficiently edit them, and assists in pushing the end results for others to see. While on the surface it is targeted to professionals, I’m no professional and wouldn’t enjoy photography nearly as much without it.

  • Lightroom 3, the iPhone, and Crashing on Import

    A few weeks ago I imported photos from my iPhone into Lightroom 3.  Ever since, I’ve had Lightroom crash on several occasions when I’ve gone to import photos off of a Compact Flash card.  I’m running Windows 7, 64-bit. I was resorting to a reboot to clear it up, but tonight I had too much […]

  • Lightroom 2: Output Sharpening

    Since installing version 2.0 of Lightroom, I’ve been ignoring the new export option for Output Sharpening.  It has been sitting there on the screen but I’ve always been in too much of a hurry to try it out and see the results. Over the weekend I decided to change that.  What it does is allow […]

  • Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2

    Last week I purchased  Adobe Lightroom 2, the new version of the software I use to manage and edit my photos.  Ever since trying out version 1.0 of the product, I have been thrilled.  It’s easy to use, lets me get great results from my photos, and helps manage the ever-growing stack of images (20,000+ […]

  • Pets

    We’ve found recently that David just lights up whenever he touches one of our cats, Ana’s parents’ cats, our my parents’ dog.  It’s really fun to watch, he loves it.
