Lightroom Learning Center
In mid-2015 I migrated my photo library from Aperture to Lightroom. I've really warmed up to Lightroom. It's a very capable asset manager and the Develop module shines for post processing. If you're considering a move from Aperture to Lightroom, grab my free Aperture to Lightroom migration guide.
I've assembled this page as an index to my Lightroom tips and tricks. Find what you're looking for quickly and easily. Get the most out of Lightroom.
This is a living page, so check back often for new tips. And if you have a question about Lightroom, send me a question through my contact page.

Most links below jump to one of my YouTube videos, right to the spot in the video where I demonstrate the tip. Your time is valuable, I don't want to waste it.
