Thanks for looking at these, I have to step away from the class a lot over the next few days and I really am hoping that these items can be addressed. Thanks for being here creativelive!
Q1: What is the best way to import photos if you are using a white balancing device, such as an expo disk or color checker? How do you best utilize presets?
Q2: If someone was creating a lrcat. for every photo shoot and they wanted to create a lrcat. template containing collections etc. that are specific to every client, how would you copy that lrcat, and be able to use it for a new client each time? And can it contain folders as well as collections?
Q3: When editing in Photoshop from within Lightroom, are you editing on the actual photo or is it still an .xmp file? Is it better to go ahead and save these images as a .jpeg upon leaving Photoshop, or is it best to just leave it as a .tiff to re-enter Lightroom? Does this decision affect the image from the standpoint of file handling preferences?
Q4: How do you organize your photos for web purposes, verses print purposes as you export them from Lightroom? And are there plug-ins that work for Wordpress under the web module?
After selecting images for export to Hard Drive>Desktop>subfolder (e-mail), if you want to delete images from the "desktop" folder will that create a "?" in Lightroom 3?
Is LR3 compatible with CS6, and is CS5 compatible with LR4's improved DNG format?
Laura, what are LR4's "must have" features? The improvements to the Develop Module? The addition of the Map and Book Modules? The much-improved DNG capability?
What are LR's scariest error messages?
An LR3/LR4 compatibility question: Can images (example: raw + xmp) edited in LR4 be opened later in my cheap friend's copy of LR3?
Are map locations read by stock photo agencies thereby making keywording unnecessary?
I love using the "\" button to quickly toggle back to see the original image in the Develop mode, but is there the same one-button toggle back to see the original image feature while working in the LIBRARY mode? It's annoying to have to go back to the develop mode every time I want to see the original....
Sorry one more.
Q5: How do you save multiple preset styles of the same photo for review and/or export?
