I wrote an article for ProPhoto Resource on Lightroom Previews this month.
John Beardsworth has been making some announcements. First up, he’ll be on the Adobe stand at Focus on Imaging, held in the NEC Birmingham from March 6th-9th. He’s also updated his Search Replace Transfer plugin to 1.30 with bug fixes and a new ‘Brute Force’ feature.
Speaking of Focus on Imaging, I’ll be speaking on the Phototraining4U stand (as if you couldn’t guess!). I don’t have the stand info yet, but will update when I find out.
