Blog Delayed ~ Technical Ignorance to Blame

Blogging has been a slog lately because I was using a ridiculous process to prepare photos for our blog. I was using one program to edit photos, another program to add a watermark and a third program to resize the pictures before uploading them to our blog. IF I could find enough wifi to actually upload the prepared photos.

All of these hoops were jumped in an attempt to make the pictures load more quickly on our website when I upload photos and when someone visits our blog.

Fortunately, my son Clayton, saw my editing process and informed me that I was wasting a lot of time and effort. Clayton has introduced me to the Lightroom Classic program which allows me to perform all of the above mentioned edits in one place. Plus, the watermark and resizing features can be handled on multiple photos instead of one picture at a time.

OHHHH, a way to reduce the painfully slow process of preparing pictures!

I am just in the first days of learning Lightroom, but I hope to be back to blogging very soon. I am pretty excited about learning shortcuts since I use our blog as a place to record our experiences and for a little creative outlet for myself.

It feels kind of great to be looking forward to blogging again instead of dreading the photo process!

Anyway, here is one little sunset picture from Canada….. I look forward to sharing our adventures again soon!

Sunset at Hawk Bay, Canada.

    1. So far so good on Lightroom Classic. I think the editing will take a bit of time as I was so accustomed to using iPhoto. But being able to save different export settings is great and a time saver. SD has been great so far.
