Using XMP Sidecar Files to Sync Lightroom with Bridge and Photoshop Camera RAW

Lightroom is my preferred platform for viewing, selecting, editing and delivering images, but occasionally, I need to open images directly into Photoshop, or view a folder of images in Bridge. In either case, the XMP data is the key to making a seamless workflow for that kind of circumstance. This Lightroom lesson explains how to use XMP data to allow a synchronous interaction between Lightroom, Bridge and Photoshop Camera RAW.

Post-Production is as much a part of the process of photography as is pressing the shutter, or lighting the subject.  Because of this fact, I am driven to find the very best ways to enhance my images with the very best quality and in the most efficient way possible.  This is what I teach in my workshops.  One of the many tips I have mentioned in my workshops, which surprisingly receives gasps of awe is the idea of using the Split Tone options in Adobe Lightroom for color images rather for than black and white images.  So, I thought I would pass this little tidbit of information on to you today.

Lightroom Catalog Portability and Syncing Tutorial

If you are using lightroom on more than one computer, say a laptop and a desktop, or perhaps you have an assistant to does some of your post processing work, or you have outsourced your post processing to Shoot Dot Edit, you will find that knowing how to share, transfer and sync Lightroom Catalogs as well as image XMP data will be invaluable.  Most often, I am using this feature to take a little work with me on my laptop as I am traveling to teach a workshop.  But many of you will also find this lesson useful in outsourcing your work to someone like Shoot Dot Edit.

Inside the Image- Lightroom Custom Vignettes

Living in the desert is a unique experience.  Forget about the 120 degree summer days and the horribly unfriendly plant life.  To me, the weather is quite fascinating.  I love the monsoon rainstorms and the lightning is fantastic.  Other places in the world have their own challenging weather situations, many much more dangerous.  There are tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, blizzards, etc…  and none of these options are very appealing to me, which is why I prefer my native state of Arizona.  But we do have our own unique weather effect: the dust storm. I was traveling back from a job in Tucson and took a back road route home (rather than the freeway).  I enjoy doing this because everything goes by so quickly on the freeway
