watched your video on how to back-up the lightroom catalog. awesome, because it’s super simple.
I understand that you need to be an expert to explain things simple. ( any field)
thanks for sharing
Have enjoyed many of your videos. Very easy to follow.
Thanks, Gary! Hope to have more for you shortly.
I have just discovered your tutorials today and found them very useful for beginners as I am. I have serious troubles with importation of photos in Lightroom and then, to export them when they are edited to an external record since I don’t want to have them in my laptop but a virtual copy to show. I thank you very much for your tutorials.
Hi Mari, I’m glad you are finding my tutorials helpful. If you are having trouble exporting your photos, if you could be more specific about your issue, I will try to help you out. After editing an image in Lightroom you do need to export a JPEG in order to email it or post online etc.
