  • The August 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes advanced GPU support, batch HDR/pano merge and more. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has deleted photos on the desktop/mobile apps, as well as video support and batch metadata editing on Android. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

adding text to pictures to be <<published>> from Lightroom

I've been looking for ways to add text to an LR picture (original/virtual copy etc.) that is to be published (LR term!). LR Mogrify and other solutions I've seen (Watermarks) only work either in specific LR modules (printing/slideshows) or when any sort of EXPORT is involved. What I need however is adding some text to pictures that has to show up after LR has published them directly to a gallery or service. Much obliged for pointing me in the right direction.

You should be able to use LR Mogrify inside a publishing service too. Select the LR Mogrify function on the bottom left of the dialog, then click 'Add' to add it to the publishing service settings.
