Tip Tuesday: Kerning and Leading

In type, kerning is the space between each character and leading is the space between each line of text. They get their names from the old days of movable type presses. Strips of lead were placed between each line of text to set the line spacing. The kern was the overlap of the metal type over the slug. Okay, now that you have some useless knowledge, let me give you something useful. To adjust the kerning, place your insertion point between two letters, hold down the Option (PC: Alt) key, and tap the Left or Right Arrow keys on...

You can click on...

Tip Tuesday: Printing Multiples of the Same Image Per Page in Lightroom’s Print Module

There are a couple of different ways, but we’ll start with probably the most-used method, which is choosing how many rows/columns of images you want on your page. In the Page Grid section of the Layout panel (in the right side Panels area), if you choose 1 for Rows and 1 for Columns, you get one image (makes sense, right?). If you want more than one image per page, you just increase either the number of rows or columns. For example, if you drag the Rows slider to 3, you will now have a page with three images stacked...
