Use Adobe Lightroom to organise images

We explore the options for tagging, sorting and filtering your photos in this popular Adobe app

We are all guilty of snapping away at every opportunity, which can lead to hundreds or even thousands of images on our computers waiting to be sorted. It’s a laborious task at the best of times, but luckily there are software programs that can help you out.

Adobe’s Photoshop Lightroom software was originally conceived to be a pure photo-management application, helping you to organise large collections of images. It has progressed massively since then, and now includes editing functions as well as multiple sharing

Use a creative film effect on your photos

Make digital photos look like they have been processed from film with DxO Film Pack 4.

Turn photos to sketches

Go a step further than basic filters to achieve an impressive sketch effect and learn effective editing skills on the way.

Using sketch filters is a good place to start when trying to re-create a hand-drawn look in portraits, but with a few extra layers and a little bit of time you can create a really vivid and professional result. The style reflects a thick sketch, emphasising the hand-drawn, rough nature of a graphite pencil — a realism that will leave your friends wondering if you did actually draw it!

Instead of spending years honing your drawing skills, getting high-quality

Tunnel lover

Documenting big construction jobs.

How did you start shooting construction sites?

I started taking photos of a tunnel project in Portland, OR, as part of our construction work. Originally, the photos were for internal use. Then the City of Portland hired me to document other construction. I have since photographed projects for my current employer, Jacobs Associates, and other clients. It varies, but I visit about 15 to 20 sites per year. Although Jacobs Associates values my photography skills, engineering geologist is my prime occupation.

What kind of access do you get on a tunnel project?

Generally, I have access

Scan and share old photos on your phone.

Get to grips with Lomography’s Smartphone Film Scanner.

When cameras went digital, every area of photography was completely revolutionised. We are now able to view, edit and eliminate photographs on the device itself; we can store our photo collections on a computer; but perhaps most significant is the fact that many of us have stopped printing our memories. The need to travel to a photo developing shop has diminished, and although it is easy enough to print digital photos, more and more people are creating digital albums and sharing their snaps on their computer, television, smartphone, tablet or online. Consequently,
