Photography Workshops and Classes

Thanks to the Denver Digital Photo Club

Last night I made a Lightroom presentation to one of the more established photo clubs in the Denver area. It was a blast! Great turnout, lots of good questions and interaction and we all had a good time exploring the advantages of Lightroom in a digital photography workflow.

I brought all the remaining copies of my book that I had; unfortunately several people didn’t get one… I ran out. (You can get them on

Dick York founded Denver Digital Photo Club 6 years ago – a long time in terms of digital photography – and of clubs. They’ve been holding a monthly meeting every month all these years, and it showed… lots’ of camaraderie.

My thanks to Dick and the club members for a warm welcome and a nice evening. Cheers!


  1. Thanks for the presentation. I was one of the lucky ones who got your book. In fact I’m busy reading it.

    I’ve been a Lightroom user for several years now and begin without fully knowing the scope of the program. I’ve managed to screw up the data base, between getting a new computer, using it on two computers and filling up a hard drive! Now I’m on a mission to make it alright again.


  2. Kristal, thanks for coming to the meeting, and for purchasing a copy of my book!

    I also appreciate you posting a comment on my blog. Here’s some additional info that might help:

    To move files between Lightroom catalogs, use the Import from Catalog and Export to Catalog commands (both under the File menu).

    When using Import from Catalog, you need to have the catalog open that you want to bring the photos into. When you run the Import from Catalog command, you will get an Import dialog box similar to the standard one, allowing you to choose the files to be imported and how they are handled during the Import process.

    Export from Catalog also requires a catalog to already be open. You then select the photos you want to Export and run the command from the File menu. Note that Export to Catalog always creates a new catalog – you can’t use this to move files into an already existing catalog. Export to Catalog is most useful for generating temporary working catalogs for specific purposes.

    Probably the best thing about Import from Catalog and Export to Catalog routines is that they will also carry-over any Collections, Virtual Copies, Stacks etc. that are in the original catalog.

    Hope this gets you on your way to cleaning up your database issues. Remember that usually, the best strategy is to have just one master catalog, and use smaller, individual catalogs only as necessary.
