Sync Button-Lightroom Video
Editing

I was so excited when Jenny mentioned that Amazon has Lightroom on sale right now for $199 (regularly $299). I thought this was a perfect time to tell you guys about my absolute favorite feature in LR…the sync button! It is truly amazing and saves me so much time! Why doesn’t every program allow you to edit one photo and sync all the rest in the exact same edit?? Of course, this only works if your photos are in the same lighting. It is such a time saver!!!

    I big puffy heart love the sync button! I seriously do a majority of my editing now in LR and only bring it into CS5 for minor editing and cloning. I love that my editing takes half the time now with that sync button. Lightroom rocks, everyone should have it! :) I’m such an enabler. hehe

    Use it all. the. time. Love it. Just yesterday I was editing in PS and couldn’t do something that I was used to doing in LR. I got really frustrated and switched over to LR. ;)

    Batch editing…I swoon for it (even tho I don’t have lightroom yet!)! Lightroom 3 is on sale at bhphotovideo.com for $179+free shipping through August 20. adorama.com currently has it listed for $179 too :)

      I hate it when I buy something and see I could have saved $30 more. I have heard B&H is the best place for photography items. I’ll make sure to bookmark… :D

    I seriously ♥ LR3 and don’t miss PS at all! I use only one thing in PS and its an action to resize and sharpen for the web. Otherwise I would never use it. Great tip for newbies of LR! :-D

    Hi! I’m new to photography and have been wanting PS for a while now… Looking for suggestions.. Some say get PS Elements to get started with editing. Is Lightroom something i should consider instead of these? Not wanting to become a pro photographer, just want a good program for personal use!

    Thanks for any help! I appreciate it :)

      Personally, I LOVE Lightroom! It can do so much! I only use Lightroom to edit all my photos. I have PSE and LR and have found Lightroom to be much easier. Then again, I did take a workshop just on LR which helped a lot. I would definitely look into it :O) I have several videos and posts about LR if you want to see what it can do :O)

    Lightroom is really amazing, I love it’s feature, I love it’s capabilities and everything about Lightroom I love it all. For sure, many of you here are using lightroom, it is truly reliable to use!

    I just got Lightroom a few weeks ago, and I’m loving it already! (But still in the dark about so many features.) So excited to learn about the sync feature and some other tips and tricks from you here today. Off to explore more of your Lightroom tutorials!
