Since this was posted, I discovered this is called a “linked layer” by Adobe.
If you want to apply an adjustment filter to a particular layer in Photoshop you can make it a Sub-layer. This is a great way to combine multiple bracketed images as layers and adjust each layer independently and non-destructively.
1. In the Layer panel, create the new adjustment layer.
2. With the new layer selected press Ctrl + Alt + G
A small right angle arrow will appear and the adjustment layer will be indented in the layer panel.
3. Now paint in the mask in the sub-layer to let the un-adjusted layers below show through.
To me (and a few others on the internet) Lightroom 3 seems to have a non-intuitive way to add keywords to selections of photos. I would have thought you could select all the photos you wished to keyword the same and just type them in once and it would propagate to all of the selected. Not so, all that does is update the first selected photo. There are some instructions out there about using the spray can but this seemed unwieldy to me with large selections.
1. In Library grid view, select one photo and make sure all the keywords you wish to use exist by adding them.
2. Select all the files that need the same keywords.
3. On the right side under Keyword List, find each keyword you wish to add, right click and select “Add this keyword to selected photos”
While on the trail today in Yosemite, we saw this bear across the river. He was rooting around in the scrub and then left across the road in a hurry.
This was on the Niles Canyon Railway during the Train of Lights.
Well, I took the plunge into Lightroom 3 hoping it would get me from download to print faster and it has been a struggle. Perhaps the Bridge / Adobe Camera RAW / Photoshop workflow are more tailored to my way of thinking. I don’t know. If you are making the transition like I am, Julieanne has some great information like how-to videos and cheat sheet PDF to get you started. Just click on over to www.jkost.com
