Lightroom Brush Buildup

By Gene McCullagh
October 11, 2011

Adjustment brushes are a really nice feature in Lightroom. Since they made their appearance localized adjustments became easy within Lightroom and I have found less of a reason to roundtrip images to Photoshop for these kinds of edits. A few months ago we took an in-depth look at the adjustment brush, Adjustment Brush Basics - Part 1 and Adjustment Brush Basics - Part 2. If you are unfamiliar with this tool that would be a good place to start.

Networks Blocking Google TV -- the networks are carrying over their old distribution models: someone aggregates eyeballs and pays them for access. In their world view, Google TV is just another cable company.

The Slideshow Module - Part 2: Tour's End and Some Tips

By Gene McCullagh
June 3, 2011

By now you've had a chance to wander around the Slideshow module and get familiar with some of the controls we looked at in The Slideshow Module - Part 1: Basic Tour. If you haven't spent much time in this module before, I hope the basic tour was helpful and encouraged you to try things out. Let's finish up our tour of the Slideshow module and then we can talk about a few tips/tricks to make your slideshows snappier. After that we should talk about some issues and concerns with how Lightroom has implemented slideshows and some possible alternatives if you still want more slideshow pizzazz than Lightroom can deliver.

The Slideshow Module - Part 1: Basic Tour

By Gene McCullagh
May 31, 2011

There are many articles, tips, and tutorials about the Library module. Even more has been written on wandering through the complexities and features of the Develop module. No doubt that these two modules are at the heart of Lightroom and where we spend the majority of our time. But Lightroom does have three other modules! The Print module seems to be the next most familiar. However, when I talk to users I am always surprised at how few ever really venture into the Web and Slideshow modules. Many have taken a look when they started using Lightroom. Few have returned. So let's take a tour!

Make it a Game - really?

By RJ Owen
June 5, 2010

If I had a dollar for every time I've heard the phrase "make it a game" or "make it like a game" or "give it some game-like features" in my career, I'd be retiring in luxury next week. Games provide an important proving ground for interface methods that drive technology forward and have the potential to bring about a sense of accomplishment, inspiration, and engagement unparalleled in other avenues of life. n this post I want to examine the value of this statement, if any, and what we as RIA developers might learn from games.
