You are the best instructor out there Matt. Your attention to detail makes it easy to understand. Good Work.
I greatly appreciate and enjoy your tutorials because you do not just show how to do something, you explain why to do it. I have learned a lot about Lightroom, thanks to you!!! I have been doing photography as a hobby for most of my life, but, at the strong encouragement of my family and friends, I have recently decided to try to do it professionally. I still have lots to learn and many more questions, so again, thanks for sharing your knowledge!!!
Great tips. You explain everything in such an easily understandable way. Thanks Matt.
WOW great stuff! Your tips are the most useful & easily explained. Thanks Matt!
Wow – an amount slider?!? Who knew?!! Love it so much – thank you for sharing your knowledge!
Great tips, Matt! Thank you! I love how simple Lightroom edits are.
Usually when I see these “tip you probably did not know about in xxx” I find them a waste of time because they are things I have used for years.
Not this time! I did not know a single one of these tips, and every one of them is something that will fit well into my workflow. Thanks!
thank Matt..appreciate your continued commitment to your devoted fans.
Thanks so much for the tips. I appreciate how you can explain things in such a way that they are easy to understand. I do have one question that you may know as you are a Sony shooter as well. Do you know when they are going to allow Sony to tether in Lightroom? Thanks again!
Matt thanks for the tips. They are great, we all need them. Looking forward to this week’s tips. Keep sending them, please.
Wow. Great tips and I would never have known some of them without this video!
Dank je wel Matt sommige tips kende ik nog niet,
je bent gewoon fantastisch
Matt, great tips; and your teaching style makes for greater learning, comprehension and retention.
These are so cool!!!
I knew exactly ONE of these. (The straight line one because isn’t it the same in Photoshop?) Thanks for sharing them
Fantastic bunch of hints! Thank you
One of your best yet! Thanks.
HI Matt, great time saving and adjustment tips as always. Thanks Matt.
Hey Matt, Great tips. On the Auto Mask tip; the reverse happens if the Auto Mask box is checked. If you press the command key it will let you paint over the line. So be sure it is not checked if using the command/control key.
Great video Matt. I’m a long time LR user and did not know these functions.
Very helpful, thanks 🙂
This is an excellent set of tips!
Thank you Matt. As everyone has said. Great reminder and some new tricks.
The first tip could be used for when you shoot panoramic pictures on an auto mode and it changes the exposure halfway through the series.
Hey Stephen – years ago that would have been the case. LR’s pano merge is among the best out there and actually matches the exposures automatically now so you don’t have to do it.
Wow! Really GREAT tips and all new to me despite the fact that I’ve been using Lr for over 5 years! Thank you, Matt!
Thanks, Matt. I knew all of those but it was a good reminder. One tip to add for brushes, especially when doing edges, is to zoom in to your image. I’ve found that the AutoMask feature is variable in its effectiveness depending on zoom level. So, depending on the resolution of your image, zoom into 1:1 or even more when brushing around edges. You may have to hold down the spacebar key and drag to move the image around, but I find it makes a difference.
Yet another great set of tips.
As Usual Matt – this vid has some great tips – I will go & try them. Keep up the fantastic work
Wow. Pretty well all new to me!
The really cool thing about your videos is my wish to immediately try them out. Your enthusiasm is infectious. Thanks.
I always learn something….Thanks Matt K!
You have taught me so much! Thank you! I really like using the “previous” option.
Wow! I know quite a bit about Lightroom but those tips I did not know! Thank you very much they will be useful!
Always great tips! Thanks.
