Rock’in Social Media – 10 Fast Steps using Lightroom’s email.

By | Lightroom | No Comments

Rock’in Social Media with Adobe Lightroom’s Email!

We just started to get into Instagram, so I was looking for a variety of ways to figure out how to share my images to Ashley’s phone that I have processed from my camera.  When right in front of me (because I’m on Lightroom all the time), Lightroom was saying, “Hey, I’m here  – use me!”

I did a deep dive on how important it is to really focus on at least one Social Media site to help you connect with others to build relationships.  If you’re using Adobe Lightroom, you really need to dive into the email part of this software.

It’s so easy and fast that how can you not use it?  Many of us use our phones to work nowadays and Lightroom knows it.  Send your images from one email to another, grab it from your phone and bam…Instagram here you come.

Let’s share the fun and how easy it is to set it up.

Ok…if you just don’t have time for the video, here are the steps.  Make it easy so you use it.

  1.  Set up a Gmail account.  It’s the easiest to work with.
  2.  Pick an image & take it to your development module, right-click on it.
  3.  Click on ’email photo’
  4.  Click on the small drop-down arrow in the ‘from’ area of the pane.
  5.  Click on ‘go to email account manager’
  6.  Click ‘Add’ your email info and verify
  7.  At the bottom pane, you’ll see (Preset)- click it to ‘create a new preset’ when done click export.  In the video, I share my Instagram settings.
  8.  In the ‘To’ location add the email address that you use on your phone.  Add additional info if needed.
  9.  Press send…whooo hooo, you’re almost done.
  10.  Check your email on your phone and ‘Reply’ to email to access the image.  The image will be at the bottom, tap on that to access.

Now you’re ready to download the image to your phone and/or send to your favorite social site.

Adobe Lightroom Basics Course

By | Education, Lightroom, Video Courses | No Comments

Have you seen my Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Basics Course on sale? It’s a great tool for people who are just starting to use Lightroom. To see more detailed information about the course, please click here. I have to admit that my audio isn’t the best so I felt I should give you all a great deal. I did put a lot of time into this course to help you understand Lightroom and feel it’s so worth the money.

This is a fun abstract I took at Lake Tahoe. It’s so easy to get caught up in the beauty of the place as a whole, but when you take time to look at small details your photography will bloom and take on a whole new perspective.

To see the before and after image, please join my new facebook group here.  I also like to talk about the photograph a bit too. I would love it if you participated and shared your behind-the-scenes of an image or just joined in to see the fun.


Kevin has wanted a Copter since they came out. I thought I’d share these with you all. The debate is on the table.

This week went by fast!  I’m working on a couple of projects and will share them with you later.  My husband is from Boston so we are glued to the World Series games 🙂 To support the Red Sox and my red nails (for Halloween) I’ll share a couple of my red photographs with you all.
