    Lightroom Killer Tips

    Each time you jump over to Photoshop, it usually creates a copy of your photo and saves it alongside the original in PSD or TIFF format (depending on what you chose in Lightroom’s External Editing preferences), even if you never made a change to it in Photoshop. If you’re like me, you probably had a hundred or more of these PSDs or TIFFs with no visible changes, just taking up space on your drive and in Lightroom. If you still haven’t gotten rid of them, here’s what to do: (1) Go to the Library module, and in the Catalog panel, click on All Photographs. (2) Up in the Library…

    I downloaded PS Elements 13 to use with LR but I find the menu font sizes either too small to see or way too big. It seems a common problem for high res screens, mine is a 1920x1080 laptop. I believe full Photoshop has the same problem. If that is the case can someone please recommend another editor that would substitute for Elements or even Photoshop? Thanks Peter
