Somehow podcast #45 has remained a perennial favorite. It has been hosted on AdobeTV for over 2 years, with over 50,000 downloads. Popular demand as convinced me to post this video again, so that you can see the original, large Quicktime version right here on

Also, note that the original concept for this video was the inspiration for my Lightroom Library Tutorials, and was expanded into this 16 video series which can be found here.

Having bought the new LR5 Develop Videos, I decided to run through the Library 4 (with FREE updates for LR5 – great , thanks George), and wow, I am learning even more. Now I am a regular LR user I am finding lots of little tricks I had “forgotten”. I also watched Podcast 45 – excellent run through all those goodies like how sidecar files work (and what they are!). Best discovery I have made since Lightroom is George’s videos on how to use it effectively. Thank you George.
