Setting Up Lightroom

Lightroom normally writes its changes to the catalog, but this is no good for us. We want Lightroom to write changes to XMPs. Why? We’ll only need to send back the XMP files (which are really small) to deliver the work that we’ve done!

Step 1:

Open the Lightroom with the catalog that you want to use.

Step 2:

Under the Lightroom menu, select “Catalog Settings...”

Step 3:

In the “Metadata” tab, make sure “Automatically write changes into XMP” is checked.

That’s it!
