I love his presets. Hey, I love anybody who makes my work easier. What can I say. Well if you’re like me, be sure to check out the NEW and REVISED auto presents Matt Kloskowski has posted on Lightroom Killer Tips. 

By far my top post is How to Make a Signature Brush in Photoshop.

Well, now David has another link and this one is for Adobe Lightroom and it comes via The Viewfinder! I love it. I think you will too.

Wow, see how many of these confessions you can relate to.

My own list:

  • I don’t keyword my photos nearly as much as I should either.
  • I too, hate metadata, yet
  • I love the benefits of metadata. ??? It’s like keywording my photos.
  • Since I’ve gotten Lightroom, I too have found I get just a little ticked when I have to take a photo into Photoshop for further editing. (But let’s don’t tell Scott about this one).
  • It bugs me  too, just a little when people don’t believe that I didn’t “Photoshop” a photo. Well, this last one may not be true. So what if they don’t believe me. I know how awesome Lightroom is. They can believe me or NOT.
