We Could Possibly See Some New Photoshop & Lightroom Features Released Tomorrow

Hey, it’s possible, because tomorrow morning is the opening keynote for Adobe’s MAX conference, and historically they’ve announced new Lightroom and Photoshop updates during the keynote. So, since this is historically the case, Rob Sylvan will be doing a post on any new Lightroom features over on my other blog — LightroomKillerTips.com tomorrow just in case they do release any new Lightroom features (hey, it could happen, right?)

Catch My “Maybe There Will Be New Lightroom & Photoshop Features” Webcast tomorrow

At 11:00 am tomorrow ET, I’m doing a Webcast for KelbyOne members just in case Adobe does indeed announce new features. If they do, I’ll be showing them, if, ya know, they are announced. So, stop by tomorrow to see if history is on our side, and then if you’re a KelbyOne member, drop in and see what, if anything, is up.

P.S. Are you going to ‘The Flash Conference?” It’s going to be awesome. Get the scoop here.

It’s that time again. It’s been about 8-months since our last “Back-up Your Lightroom Classic Catalog” day, so you may be well overdue for a backup (if you’re not already doing it on a regular basis, and best as I can tell, most of us aren’t). Let’s wrap up this summer knowing that we backed up our Lightroom Classic catalog and we’ll all be sleeping better tonight for it.

While the process of backing up your catalog is easy, first you might want to know why you need to backup your Lightroom catalog and then how to do it, step-by-step. So, first read this below from my other blog, LightroomKillerTips.com:

After reading that, you might ask, “Where should that backup be stored?” So, read this:

OK, that’s the plan — stop what you’re doing; backup that Lightroom Classic catalog, and wrap up this summer off like a boss!

The Landscape Conference is less than one month away!

It’s an all online, two-day, two track live learning event, and it’s going to be incredible! If you haven’t heard about it, check out the video below (high-five to our own Juan Alfonso who did a brilliant job creating it and really capturing the vibe and feeling of what we’re doing). Tickets and details at this link.

Have a great backed-up feelin’ weekend, and we’ll catch ya back here on Monday (well, that’s what I’m hoping, anyway)! :)

-Scott

P.S. If you’re already backing up your catalog on a regular basis, then check my post today about freeing up a bunch of space by throwing your old, outdated catalog backups away. Here’s that link.

…and if you think it’s because I stayed up way too late last night playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare with my friend Terry, man are you off base. ;-)

Anyway, sorry I whiffed on today’s post, but if you’re a Lightroom user, I did (earlier in the day yesterday) get a post together for my other blog (yes, one blog is clearly not enough, though I obviously have a hard time keeping up with even one), and it’s on how to create multi-photo layouts in Lightroom’s print module (and no you don’t have to print the layouts —  you can save them as JPEGs and share them on social, email them, post them on Instagram, etc.).

Here’s a link to the post and the short video where I show you how easy it is (you’ll be surprised). :)

Here’s to a great week; one where you are more productive than I was last night. :)

-Scott

Whoo hoo! It’s here — tomorrow we kick off two full-days of live online Lightroom learning featuring two simultaneous training tracks, taught by the very best instructors in the business.

Hundreds and hundreds of photographers around the world have already signed up to be a part of this ground-breaking online event, and if you want to join in, it’s not too late. Head over to lightroomconference.com right now and grab your ticket (don’t wait until tomorrow and wind up paying full price — get your ticket at a big discount today).

If somehow you’re just hearing about this, check out the video below:

May 5-6, 2020
11:00 AM – 5:45 PM (EDT)

This live-streamed event is open to everyone, and you can register today at lightroomconference.com – Thanks to everybody who has helped us spread for the word, and if you have a photographer friend who you know this would be perfect for, we’d love it if you’d share this post with them.

We’re super psyched, and hope you are, too. In the meantime, stay healthy, keep washing those hands, get a good night’s sleep and I hope to see you online with us tomorrow at the conference. :)

Cheers,

Here’s what’s coming up:

TUESDAY: “Lightroom: From Flat to Fabulous” (hands-on 1-hour Webinar)

These Webinars are usually just for KelbyOne Pro members, but in light of our “stuck at home” situation, we’re opening them to everyone everywhere.

Tomorrow it’s a hands-on class —  and we’re going to take a RAW landscape, portrait, and travel image from the original RAW file all the way to the final image. Click here to download my images I’ll be using so you can follow along. Note: If you don’t have Lightroom, you can still follow along in Photoshop’s Camera RAW (it’s the same sliders in the same order that do the exact same things).

Who: You and Me
What: “Lightroom: From Flat to Fabulous” (It’s a hands-on “Follow-Along Live” Webinar. I’m giving you the RAW files to download so you can follow-along live right with me).
Where: kelbyone.com/livewebcast
When: Tuesday | 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET (New York Time Zone)
Why: ‘Cause we’re all in this together, and if when we’re focused on creative stuff we’re not focused on all the other stuff.

ALSO LATER TUESDAY: It’s “The Grid” and our topic is “Our Favorite Things”

We’re broadcasting a day early this week (on Tuesday at 2:00 PM ET rather than the usual Wednesday at 4). We’re got a really fun topic; it’s “Our Favorite Things!”

Yes, it will include some photography gear and software, but also our favorites of everything, from people to places, food to movies, TV shows and gadgets and more. Best of all, we want to hear YOUR favorite stuff and we’ll be giving away a Playtpod Ultra to whoever posts the best favorite (that’s a double-negative if I’ve ever heard one). Should be a blast, and we have LOTS of great fun “things” to share.

Who: Erik Kuna and Me
What: The Grid; our live photography talkshow video podcast. Our topic this week is “Our Favorite Things” (see text above for more on that).
Where: Facebook.com/skelby
When: 2:00 PM ET (New York Time Zone)
Why: Because this is what we do every week now for the past seven years. It’s free, open to everybody, and we take your questions and comments live on the air.

WEDNESDAY: My full-day “Ultimate Photography Crash Course” seminar presented live in it’s entirety just for photographers in the UK

Here’s the video that explains the full-day event (below), and it’s only open to photographers in the UK. You also get 30-day on-demand access to the entire day, plus a digital download of the 153-page workbook. And yes, I am broadcasting live at 5:00 am here in the US, so we can start at 10:00 AM in the UK. Looking forward to chatting with everybody on Wednesday!

Who: Me and a whole bunch of photographers in the UK
What: My entire “Ultimate Photography Crash Course” presented live for photographers in the UK.
Where: https://bit.ly/2XAWJfU
When: 10:00 AM – 17:15 (London Time Zone)
Why: Because of this awful virus I can’t get there in person this time around, which breaks my heart — I love the UK, the British people, and I have so many friends I will miss, but this is the very next best thing.

May 5-6, 2020: The KelbyOne Lightroom Conference

We officially launched the two-day, two track Lightroom Conference on Friday and photographers all over the world are already signing up to be a part of this history-making event.

What: The KelbyOne Live Lightroom Conference
Where: lightroomconference.com
When: May 5-6, 2020 | 10:00 AM – 5:45 ET (New York Time)
Why: Because we can still move our skills ahead; we can still bring photographers together online for a shared learning experience, and it’s two days we can focus on positive, creative learning (and learn a ton will absolutely will!).

Lots of cool stuff still happening as we adapt to this current situation, but I’m thrilled we’re in a position to help so many folks, and to keep the education flowing to photographers all over the world.

-Scott

P.S. Tonight at 9:00 PM ET – I’m doing my first ever “Book Chat” over on my Facebook page. It’s kind of like an “author talk” at a bookstore, but without the bookstore. I’ll be talking about my three latest books, giving away two $50 Rocky Nook publishing gift cards, I’ll be doing a “dramatic reading” of some of my quirky chapter intros, taking your questions and comments. It’ll either be lots of fun or a total disaster, but you’ll only know if you come and check it out. Lower the lights, bring some wine, maybe some cheese (or spray cheese) and I’ll see you there tonight. Here’s the link.
