with Dustin Lucas

Wedding season is rolling in as hot as the weather, and we are all stretching out the clock with time spent at the computer. It’s game time and you need automation to get your life back. When it comes to Lightroom and Photoshop, there are plenty of ways to speed up your workflow, like running building actions, running batch processes and with AI becoming more accurate, it’s time to revisit your workflow. In this article, I am going to show you how you can export hundreds of images from Lightroom, automatically apply a Photoshop action, flatten as a JPEG, take a lunch and when you come back, everything is ready to post. The first step is to create an action or combine multiple pre-built actions and apply them by building droplets for Lightroom. The second step is building Lightroom export presets and linking our droplets. The third step is all about testing and adjusting our automation tasks. You always want to run this on a single image first before you make 800+ mistakes. Let’s dive into Photoshop to get started on creating actions and droplets.
