In this video, I show you how to take advantage of some amazingly robust features in Lightroom by simply adding a second monitor to the mix.
Having a second monitor can be very handy – often just to have your email and or a web-browser separate from your editing window can help with daily workflow, however having a second monitor in use while editing photos in Lightroom can be a real helpful time-saver and can allow you do do things you may not be able to do with just one monitor.
Editing individual images in a series can be tough to get the look and feel identical, however when editing multiple images with Survey mode in a second monitor, you can much more easily see how each photo compares in color temperature, and overall exposure and such.
I spent a ton of time editing my images in Lightroom and whenever I have the chance to let Lightroom do the heavy lifting for me, I jump on that. Having a second monitor for advance editing is one of those huge time-saving features that I use all the time and recommend it for anyone that’s considering adding another monitor to their setup.
