Quick Slimming Retouch in Lightroom 5

June 13, 2013

My first ever tutorial for TipSquirrel was on slimming a subject in Photoshop now, with the release of Lightroom 5, we can achieve that result in a new way. Oddly the way to achieve this slimming process is found in the new feature in Lightroom 5 which is designed to straighten vertical and horizontal lines; these features are found in the Lens Corrections panel in the Develop module.

Lightroom Curves Unleashed!

June 11, 2013

Sometimes, Lightroom's basic Develop controls aren't going to take you far enough, and you'll want to exercise a little more creative control over your images.

Well, one of the ways to get around this is to use graduated neutral density filters, but you may not always have them with you so there is another way. This alternative method involves a few camera controls and (don’t run away) HDR! Proviso, this method is very good but not 100% foolproof so don’t expect perfect results every time and you need Photoshop CS6 to get the best results. [More]

Lightroom is wonderful in the way it can stay out of the way and keep you immersed in your images.

Lightroom's View Options open the door to a wealth of information, presented heads up style in both the Grid and Loupe views. [More]

February 12, 2013

November 22, 2012

Today's post is in response to a problem I sometimes have, and I'm guessing that I am not alone.
