Image sharpness is a good thing… except when it isn’t. Martin Evening shows how to achieve a “‘pseudo’ diffusion printing technique” using the Lightroom 2.0 beta’s ability to go negative on the Clarity slider.
To even out exposures across multiple images, Lightroom features a “Match Total Exposures” command. Sean McCormack explains it in this brief video. (I’d listen just for the soothing brogue. ;-))

Lightroom marketing manager Frederick V. Johnson toted his camera to the Golden Gate Bridge in order to demonstrate handing off a panorama from Lightroom to Photoshop.
