Tim and Renee find themselves in a winter wonderland in the Catskills of New York State, even though the first day of spring has already arrived. They chat about the winter, and the hope for spring weather for photography (as well as their upcoming New York City Photo Workshop). They then address questions from photographers about creating different interpretations of a photo in Lightroom, preparing a photo to be printed by a print service, whether a custom profile should really be used when sending an image to be printed, file size discrepancies for RAW captures, and output settings for size and quality when exporting images from Lightroom.
