Quick tips: “5 Things You Need To Know About Your Lightroom 5 Catalog”

Good, solid tips from Terry White:

As summarized by PetaPixel:

  1. Your Lightroom Catalogs can be stored anywhere. This means that, so long as you know you’ll have Internet, they could technically be stored on Dropbox, Google Drive, Creative Cloud, or the upcoming iCloud Drive to make for easy syncing across computers.
  2. “Automatically write changes to XMP” preference makes sure that edits in Lightroom carry over to other Adobe programs such as Photoshop and Bridge.
  3. “Optimize Catalog” command removed unused caches to speed up catalog performance.
  4. Advice on how to make the most of Adobe’s impressive Smart Previews feature.
  5. Move media across your drive directory using only Lightroom, not something such as Windows Explorer or Finder, both of which can leave data behind.
