Get consistent photo edits with a color board

Let’s talk workspaces in Lightroom! Do you like to have all the tabs open when you’re editing or do you set the panels to only display on hover?

I love having the panels permanently open, small thumbnails, and a white background to edit with. I’m all about a good workspace and an editing routine that works for you over and over again. 

 How to edit consistently in Lightroom with a color profile

Because when you’re in the middle of busy season, it’s just plain nice to sit down in front of a system that’s worked before, and I like to think that a good workspace helps to create consistent editing.

Speaking of consistent editing, have I mentioned color profiles lately? I mean... they are basically the best kept secret to your light and airy editing life. I first heard about them when I was shooting film and I like to keep my profile open right next to Lightroom.

And since you’ve been asking exactly how I keep that color profile open in Lightroom, I’m here to tell you that I actually don’t! I just open the color profile in preview (I’m on a mac, but you could use a similar program!) and keep it open next to Lightroom.

Open your color profile next to lightroom and edit consistently

This one’s hot off the YouTube press and it’s easy peasy!
