Adding keywords to photos manually is a time-consuming process. And if you ask me, it’s very boring, too. But Imagga’s Wordroom could help you to significantly speed things up. It’s an Adobe Lightroom plugin that uses AI to “see” your photos. It scans them and automatically suggests up to 30 keywords, and it’s completely free to download and use.
Sensor dust can be an absolute pain sometimes. No matter how clean we try to keep our cameras, it just seems to creep in there when we least expect it – and often when it has the most impact on our shots. There are tools in Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw to let us clean it up, but we often have to zoom in and drag the image around, hoping that we find them all.
This neat trick from photographer Anthony Morganti makes this an easy systematic task with one simple keypress. I’ve been zooming and manually dragging images around in Adobe Camera Raw for years, and never knew I could do this. Now it’ll make cleaning up images a breeze.

If you use presets in Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw, here’s a new approach to them that you may find interesting. Visual Flow’s “lighting condition-based development” is a new way of creating presets. As the name suggests, it takes into account lighting conditions in the images, which makes these presets different from others currently in the market. There’s also a retouching toolkit that lets you do all the retouching work in Lightroom and ACR. So, let’s jump right into these and see what they offer and how they work.
Earlier in the week, Apple released macOS Catalina. But if you’re using Photoshop or Lightroom CC on your Mac, you may want to put the upgrade on hold. Adobe users have reported numerous problems with Photoshop and Lightroom after upgrading the system. And Adobe itself has confirmed that these two programs still aren’t compatible with the latest macOS.
If there’s one thing most Lightroom users agree about, it’s that the program could use a speed boost. In its latest announcement, Adobe introduces GPU-accelerated editing in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw. It should make the editing process smoother and make the programs faster and more responsive.
When you’re working in Lightroom, you can add color to all local adjustments by selecting it from a swatch. But did you know that you can pick color from anywhere in the photo? As a matter of fact, you can pick it from anywhere on your computer. In this video, Matt Kloskowski shows you how to do it in Lightroom. It’s a very simple trick, and it also works in Photoshop.
We all make mistakes (and learn from them), and we’ll make so many different ones on our learning path. But some mistakes are more common than others. In this video, Serge Ramelli talks about the five most common editing mistakes photographers make in Lightroom. Do you recognize your old or current self in any of them?
