Importing Images from iPhoto into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom v3

Moving images from iPhoto over to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can be tricky because each program creates its own index. To do this right, you have to understand that these two programs do not work together.

Adding Metadata Adds Value to Your Photographs

Metadata is the new term for the descriptive information that accompanies any digital file.

Converting Digital Camera Raw Files to the Dng Format using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Converting Digital Camera Raw Files to the Dng Format using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

I am a big fan of the Dng raw file format. Dng files hold all of their metadata internally without the need for separate external .xmp sidecar files.

In my workflow smarter files are worth the extra step that it takes to turn a camera brand specific raw file into a Dng raw file. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom makes this conversion, this re-wrapping of the raw sensor data, super easy.
