    Last week I got the chance to teach some Lightroom classes at Adobe Max and I figured I’d give you a quick report on some new stuff that Adobe announced for Lightroom Mobile and the web. First off, a HUGE thanks to anyone that came out to Adobe Max last week in Los Angeles. The Max conference has a very creative/designer feel to it, and it’s a ton of fun. But it was great to see Lightroom making more of an impact. For example, my Lightroom for New Users class was packed. I think no matter what you do with Adobe products, chances are that you use a photo at some point. And…

    23 Nov 2014 | 8:16 am
    I am using a digital picture frame which requires the pictures to come in the 1920 x 1200 format (16:10). Is is possible in the export module to tell LR to use that format? I only found ways to specify 1920 or 1200 but not both. And yes, I would LR to just cut off a little bit at the bottom and top (15:10 being the source material) I am using GraphicConverter today to achieve this but my workflow would be a lot easier if I could export from LR directly.

    Several months ago, I installed LR5 as an upgrade to LR4. About a week ago, I started using LR5. For the first few days all went well and I imported about a thousand pix. The next time I sat down to import more pix, the LR5 Import module couldn't see the pix. It could see the folders fine but not the pix. The LR4 Import module had no trouble seeing the pix, and the LR5 Develop module had no problem seeing the imported pix. I tried restoring the system to a date prior to starting to use LR5 and that didn't help. Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling LR5. That didn't help either. Finally I…

    Hello guys, I have recently encountered a problem on my milky way photos which are they look different in LR's preview and output as follows: LR preview (from screenshot in the software) LR's output (sRGB, JPEG 100%) The preview one looks having a higher contrast and the stars look bigger and brighter while the output one seems to have more stars (details?) but they seems smaller and darker than the preview. This has been annoying me a lot since it happens to all my milky way photos taken but there is no problem for other normal photos like night view or landscape. Therefore, I would like to…

    Last week Adobe released a plug-in for Lightroom 5.6 (obviously Mac only) that let’s you migrate your Aperture (and iPhoto) libraries over to Lightroom. Probably one of the big questions is what exactly does it import. Well, here’s the list: • Flags • Star Ratings • Keywords • GPS Data • Rejects • Hidden Files • Color Labels* • Stacks* • Face Tags* *Color Labels, Stacks, and Face Tags will be imported as Lightroom keywords. Another big question is what happens to the adjustments made to your photos in Aperture or iPhoto. Well, those adjustment scan’t be…
  • Making the Move from Aperture to Lightroom

    Hey everyone! I’m just getting back from my Lightroom seminar in Colorado Springs yesterday. So first off, a big thanks to everyone that came out. I’m continually fortunate to have awesome crowds at every city, and yesterday was no exception. Really engaged, and just a really great group of people. Next… if you’re an Aperture user looking to make the switch to Lightroom then you’ll be happy to know I’ve got a brand new class up on KelbyOne.com. It’s called “Making the Switch from Aperture to Lightroom”. It covers how to use the new plug-in…
  • Some Cool Updates to Lightroom Mobile and the Web

    13 Oct 2014 | 7:52 am
    Last week I got the chance to teach some Lightroom classes at Adobe Max and I figured I’d give you a quick report on some new stuff that Adobe announced for Lightroom Mobile and the web. First off, a HUGE thanks to anyone that came out to Adobe Max last week in Los Angeles. The Max conference has a very creative/designer feel to it, and it’s a ton of fun. But it was great to see Lightroom making more of an impact. For example, my Lightroom for New Users class was packed. I think no matter what you do with Adobe products, chances are that you use a photo at some point. And…

  • Lightroom Mobile Roundup (and Lightroom 5.7 is out)

    Rob Sylvan
    20 Nov 2014 | 6:30 am
    My Lightroom hangout for Photofocus about Lightroom Mobile was yesterday and by sheer luck it coincided with the release of Lightroom 5.7. If you missed the live hangout you can catch the archive embedded below, but I also wanted to round up a few resources to help you get up to speed using Lightroom Mobile. I’ve also heard some good buzz for Android fans in the form of Adobe looking for Android beta testers, so hopefully that means we’ll see Lightroom Mobile support spread to the Android platform soon. A getting started with Lightroom Mobile post appeared on Photofocus today, so…

  • Photofocus: Calculating Exposure with Slower Shutter

    Rob Sylvan
    1 Oct 2014 | 12:37 pm
    In this Photofocus blog post I share my experience with an app designed to calculate exposure time when using a neutral density filter. I love long exposure photography because it has the power to make even the most mundane scenes a bit more interesting visually. When shooting daytime scenes I often turn to my Lee Big Stopper 10-stop ND filter. The Big Stopper is so dark you can’t actually see through it, which means your camera’s internal metering is off the table. Lee does include a small cheat sheet with the filter to help you determine the correct exposure with the ND filter based on…
  • Photofocus: The Flexible HSL and Color Adjustments

    Rob Sylvan
    30 Sep 2014 | 12:34 pm
    This is an excerpt from our eBook, “Develop Great Images in Lightroom”. Download it over at iTunes and Scribd! In the Mastering Exposure and Tone chapter we looked at ways to make global tonal adjustments to your photo using the Basic and Tone Curve panels. We also discussed how you can affect colors using the Vibrance and Saturation sliders in the Basic panel. Next up is the HSL / Color / B&W panel, which is an incredibly powerful and flexible tool for fine-tuning the colors in your photo. The HSL, Color, and B&W panel is actually three panels in one (Figure 1). The HSL…
  • Photofocus: Planning with Post-Production in Mind

    Rob Sylvan
    14 Sep 2014 | 12:26 pm
    In this Photofocus blog post I cover the importance of knowing multiple ways to use Lightroom and Photoshop for post-production, which can help you save time by shooting with your post-production workflow in mind. The final image you see here was the result of pre-production planning, capturing the images I needed, processing them the same exact way in Lightroom, then blending them together in Photoshop before a return back to Lightroom for output.
