Have you ever shot with a second camera or used a second shooter and then when you imported the images into Lightroom only to find out that the time on the different cameras was...
Mileta 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.
We get asked all the time for more and more Lightroom presets and were do find good free ones. I have been working on this list for a while now and will do my best to keep it updated. If you have suggestions for us to add to the list, please leave a comment. I have tried to only list sites that have more than just a couple of presets but if you know of some really good ones, be sure and let me know.
With the release of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.2, camera profiles are now built in by default. What are camera profiles? Well, let’s look start at the beginning and explain what happens to your images within Lightroom so we have a basis of reference when we get back to figuring out how to use these profiles.
Let’s face it, Adobe seriously dropped the ball on watermarking within Lightroom. Many of us got hints about potential new watermarking features for Lightroom 2.0 but were disappointed when there was nothing added. For many of us, Lightroom is the tool that we use for 90%+ of our workflow including prepping images for use on the web so the last thing we want to do is run some action in Photoshop or have to run an additional application to apply watermarks which reduces the image quality because the jpeg image has to be saved a second time.
Another new feature in Photoshop CS4 is the Live Preview when using the Cloning and Stamping tool. What this does for you is show you exactly what the effect of the tool is going to be while you are using it. Where you will probably find this to be the most useful is lining things up with the clone tool or making sure color tones and brightness levels match well.
If you have been playing around with Photoshop CS4 you may have noticed that a few features such as Extract and Web Gallery aren’t where they used to be. So where did they go? Photoshop CS4 has replaced some features and moved others to the Bridge Output module.
Today we are going to take a look at a new feature in Photoshop CS4, the Fluid Zoom and View Rotation tools. The Fluid Zoom allows for smooth zooming in and out of an image with much finer control than every before. The View Rotation tool allows you to rotate the view of the image around to make working on an image easier.
Have you been wondering how to export your images from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom? In this tutorial we go through the Web module and look at several different types of web galleries that can be created. You will see how to create a basic HTML or Flash gallery as well as exporting an Airtight Simpleviewer, AutoViewer, or Postcard Viewer slideshow.
In this video tutorial we take a look at doing white balance correction during post production with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This lesson applies to both Lightroom 1.x and Lightroom 2.0 Public Beta.
