Lightroom and Photoshop – Smart Editing

When you make adjustments to your raw files in Lightroom, you have the flexibility and the power of non-destructive edits – and unlimited undo steps. But, when you edit in Photoshop, the changes are written into the pixels and the result is a raster layer, ready for editing. However, Lightroom and Photoshop have another editing path available – one that preserves the raw data during the handoff, and maintains the non-destructive flexibility. Lightroom and Photoshop are made to work together, and there is more than one way to move files between them. In this video, we will examine the workflow in which a raw file in Lightroom is sent over to Photoshop as a Smart Object. [More]

Make Lightroom Default Develop Settings ISO Specific

You can set Lightroom Default Develop Settings so that certain parameters are automatically applied every time you import an image. But some parameters, like Noise Reduction, require different settings based on the specific ISO setting of that camera. [More]

Adobe Camera Raw Basic Panel and Lightroom Develop Module

When you open an image into Photoshop or Photoshop Elements you're automatically taken into Adobe Camera Raw. This is a hugely powerful application that you may find does all you need for an image. In this video I take a look at the Basic Panel, this is the same as the Develop Module on Lightroom and is similar to that found in Photoshop Elements. [More]

Lightroom Adjustment Brush Presets

The introduction of the Local Adjustment Brush back in Lightroom 2 was the first step in transforming Lightroom from a global editor to a fully parametric, flexible content enhancement editor. The adjustment brush capabilities have improved with every release of Lightroom since then, but you may not have been aware of the existence of Adjustment Brush Presets. [More]

Lightroom Workflow : Good to Great

I get questions all the time about my workflow, and in this tutorial I’m answering some specific questions I got related to some recent bird photos I posted on my Flickr photostream. Some other photographers had been with me and struggled to capture images in the same location and time. In addition to the workflow I present in this video, I’ll add some additional tips [More]

Lightroom Mobile Quick Setup Guide

As you may have noticed, Adobe has just released Lightroom 5.4, along with the new Lightroom Mobile for iPad. Lightroom mobile extends your workflow beyond the desktop, and onto your iPad, where you can review, rate and even edit your images, and have the changes synchronized automatically back to your main catalog. Lightroom uses the Creative Cloud storage services as the hub for this synchronization, and as a result, you must be a member of one of the subscription services for this to work, including any of the Creative Cloud plans, or the Photoshop Photography Program. The iPad app is completely free, so this is just another benefit of the Creative Cloud subscription. [More]

A Portable Lightroom Catalog

Lightroom 5 brings with it a great new feature in Smart Previews. Combine the capabilities of Smart Previews (the ability to develop and export your images based on the relatively small file size of the Smart Preview) together with the convenience and decreasing cost of cloud storage systems (such as DropBox or Google Drive) and you have some interesting ways of creating a portable, no-hassle catalog solution.

Using Lightroom on Two Computers

My main Lightroom catalog is on a desktop Windows machine in my home studio, but I travel with a MacBook Pro, and use the laptop computer for working with Lightroom on the road. In this video, I'll discuss the way I merge photos from my remote shoots back into my main Lightroom catalog. In order to do this, I use Lightroom's "Export as Catalog" and "Import from another Catalog" features to transfer and merge my two separate catalogs into one. Keep in mind that this is one of a number of possible strategies, but it is the one that works for me. [More]

Skin tone correction using RGB Curves in Lightroom 5

When it comes to editing skin tones, Adobe Photoshop has always reigned supreme. Lightroom could change the white balance and even alter the Hue, Saturation and Luminance values, but this is often not accurate enough to render great skin tones. This changed with the introduction of RGB curves in Lightroom 4, allowing us to change the values of Red, Green & Blue at a specific tonal range of the image. How this changes things will be explained below, but suffice to say it makes for much nicer skin tones without the need to export to photoshop. [More]

Embed Your Copyright with Photoshop

In this tutorial we’ll have a look at metadata and how to control what information you share when uploading your photos to the net or sharing then with clients. Metadata is information that’s collected at various points along the process of image creation. It’s invisibly added to your photos by your camera, computer and by you if you so choose. The type of information it contains varies but can include what brand of camera you used, the lens zoom length, camera mode used, exposure information and even serial numbers of your gear. Post processing in Photoshop adds more information such as which version of Photoshop you used and when it was edited. [More]
