Saving Space with Lightroom


(Credit to Charlie Seton for creating this Lightroom maxim)

Lightroom is not only a powerful photo editor, but it can also help you stay organized and even reduce your storage space when you export your images.

How, you ask?

By exporting the jpeg version of your edited raw file to your desktop before publishing or sharing via email. Then simply delete it. Your original edited raw file remains in the Lightroom Library and you don’t fill your hard drive with jpeg files that you don’t really need because you can always export another one when it is needed.

If none of this makes any sense to you, but you are intrigued about Lightroom, please consider registering for our Lightroom class on May 21 and 28. We will get you off to the right start and help you learn a technology platform that will help you become a better photographer. With a subscription to LightRoom and Photoshop for $9.99 a month you really can’t afford to not do this.

I hope to see you in class!


Sooner or Later


Yup, sooner or later that ol’ drive on your computer is gonna get full. I hope that when it does it is from lots of great photos.

This is a great time to learn how Lightroom has a simple way to move your files onto an external drive – in this case a 3.5 terabyte drive which will keep you happy for a long time.

If you want to learn how to do this, sign up now for our Lightroom class on May 21 and 28, 2016
