How Do I Save My Lightroom Work?

lightroom-photo-collection-save-workLaura Shoe blogged,

For those new to Lightroom, naturally you want to understand how to save your work. You’ll notice that the File menu in the menu bar suspiciously does not have “File Save” and “File Save As …” options. The short answer is that as you work in Lightroom – adding keywords, stars, flags and other metadata; developing your photos; creating collections and more, your work is being saved automatically, so there is no need to do a “save” before you wrap up your session.

Chris-Gampat-The-Phoblographer-Fujifilm-60mm-f2.4-review-product-photos-4-of-8ISO-4001-50-sec-at-f-4.0-680x453The Phoblographer posted this article that those members considering a move to mirrorless cameras might find useful.
