Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Import Workflow

lightroom_workflowMileta Nikoletic (@Mileta on twitter) from Stockholm wrote in to ask how I optimize my import process when using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Basically I do a pretty simple import process using a preset I created to apply the Camera Standard Camera Calibration setting to all images. This gives me a good starting point for working with my images. In this video I show how to create the Camera Standard preset and then apply it to images during import.

    Hey,
    Thanks for doing this little video, it's great to see how different photographers deal with importing and out of that be able to create a workflow taylor made for one's own way of doing things. Otherwise i'm an avid follower of your work.

    I wonder if you don't know how to set a default for the camera?Alt and click the Reset button in Develop. Apart from being better when you prefer different default settings for different cameras, it also lets you use smart collections to find images you haven't yet adjusted.

    One issue I have found is that once a preset is applied during importing, you can't undo it. Or at least, haven't figured it out yet. Right clicking on image, choosing settings, and reset does not remove settings applied during import. Any idea?
