    Last week, Lightroom CC/6 got off to a slightly bumpy start, with some installation failures and hidden purchase buttons, but the dust is settling. Adobe have just released a minor dot update (6.0.1) to address the two biggest problems – the Help menu command and shortcut went to a page that didn’t exist (now fixed) and some people were crashing on launch. Oooops! Choose Help menu > Updates within Lightroom, or click Update from the Creative Cloud desktop application.

    For those of you who prefer to continue with the stand-alone perpetual-license version of Lightroom rather than the Lightroom CC subscription, and want to upgrade to Lightroom 6 from any earlier version, I’ll show you in this article how to find the Lightroom 6 upgrade on Adobe.com.

    We all make mistakes. Some of them, we can’t avoid, and that’s to be expected. Nobody is perfect. Then there are the mistakes that are avoidable, which set us back 10 steps, and if we’re lucky, give us an opportunity to recover gracefully.

    Lightroom Killer Tips

  • Revisit the past

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:05 am
    So my wife was wanting me to print out some of our family pictures to hang on the wall, and so when she had made her selection of images that she wanted, I had a few of them that were just small files for display on the web, and when I went looking for the large jpeg, I could only find the RAW image. So, I had to re-edit them using the latest version of Lightroom. The difference in the two images is pretty cool when you look at the detail in the clouds and the more precise way I could brighten the faces etc… And so my tip for today is to go back to some of your favorite images or even…
  • Using the new Dehaze slider on Fireworks

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    30 Jun 2015 | 7:13 am
    This tip comes courtesy of one of our readers (thanks Randy F.) who pointed out in a comment here last Friday that the new Dehaze slider just added to Lightroom CC works pretty darn well for removing haze from Fireworks, and with July 4th coming up, I thought it was a perfect tip for today. I have noticed that the slider is much more effective (no pun intended) on images still in RAW format, versus those in JPEG (I did a comparison on the same file in RAW vs an exported JPEG and it’s a pretty wide difference). So, keep this up your sleeve for the Independence Day post-processing. Hope…

I’m saw some comments here, and over on my Facebook page and Twitter where some folks didn’t realize that it’s now available on Android tablets and phones, so if you didn’t realize it, it’s time to go download it and give it a whirl. Interesting to note: A margin of only 8% separates the “You bet!” response from “Not interested at all” crowd, which I thought was a bit surprising, until I read some of the comments here about…

    I like to have as much room for images in my Lightroom panels, and so I will hide my side panels, but sometimes you want to jump from one folder to another in either the Library or Develop module. You can easily do that if you have the Filmstrip open at the bottom. Simple Right-click on the black bar of the Filmstrip to bring up a new menu that has a list of your recent folders amongst other things. Right click brings up more options menu Now the key is to click on the black bar, not the dark gray one just above it. That won’t do anything for you. Remember black bar will go far……

    When it comes to protecting your images online, watermarks are not mere vanity, and can do far more than pronounce your copyright. Used strategically, watermarks are the best tool that you have. Guest author Matthew Campagna shows you how that watermark can be subtle, seductive, and secure.

I don’t recall what it was advertising, but I quite liked the image and told Google to search for similar images. The uncropped version of the image presented itself as part of a larger…

    An often overlooked (yet essential) part of a photographer’s life is organization and management. Let’s say you’re browsing the web one night and see a photo posted somewhere that gives you ideas for an upcoming shoot. Or you’re shooting a photo assignment for a magazine and the editor has provided you with a shot list. What about when you’re planning places to photograph on your next vacation? Or collaborating with other people on some kind of photo project? Is there a simple way to manage of all these? One that is available wherever you are both online and off?

In the past, i scanned and printed from large format film (4 x 5" & 6x17cm formats) which worked wonderfully printing on a canon ipf 8000. For the past two years, I have shifted to image capture with the 60MP hasselblad. Unfortunately, a single image file from this camera has not proven to have high enough rez for quality in the the prints I need to make.

How best to do this (Googling provides various scenarios). 3) LR did not import (old) PNG or GIF or BMP files? Remedy for those still wanted? 4) Have all photos in both iPhoto and Photos libraries.

    Hi guys, just a quick update on my Lightroom mobile for iPad and Android books. Since there have been so many changes over the last few months, both on the desktop and in the mobile apps (with more coming shortly), I need to update a lot of the information in the iPad/Android books, so I’m taking the opportunity to do a fairly significant rewrite. This means it’ll take a little longer than planned to release the updated eBooks, but they will still be free updates for anyone who has already purchased. I’ve temporarily withdrawn the mobile books from Amazon and iBookStore.

We’re living in a world consumed by fear of the truth—but is there really such a thing as “the truth” anymore—especially in visual terms? It is fear of the unknown that causes people to judge and criticize—fear of an illusion created by our own experiences and teachings. One individual’s perspective may not be the same as another’s, because we process and interpret visual stimuli in a variety of ways. Thus, what is reality, if not a…

    This tip comes courtesy of one of our readers (thanks Randy F.) who pointed out in a comment here last Friday that the new Dehaze slider just added to Lightroom CC works pretty darn well for removing haze from Fireworks, and with July 4th coming up, I thought it was a perfect tip for today. I have noticed that the slider is much more effective (no pun intended) on images still in RAW format, versus those in JPEG (I did a comparison on the same file in RAW vs an exported JPEG and it’s a pretty wide difference). So, keep this up your sleeve for the Independence Day post-processing. Hope…

    Here’s the results from Friday’s one-question survey about your use of Lightroom on your mobile devices. I’m saw some comments here, and over on my Facebook page and Twitter where some folks didn’t realize that it’s now available on Android tablets and phones, so if you didn’t realize it, it’s time to go download it and give it a whirl. Interesting to note: A margin of only 8% separates the “You bet!” response from “Not interested at all” crowd, which I thought was a bit surprising, until I read some of the comments here about…

    Hi Gang – I’m back from vacation (took some time off for a trip with the family before my son heads off for college).

    I like to have as much room for images in my Lightroom panels, and so I will hide my side panels, but sometimes you want to jump from one folder to another in either the Library or Develop module.

Simple Right-click on the black bar of the Filmstrip to bring up a new menu that has a list of your recent folders amongst other things. Right click brings up more options menu Now the key is to click on the black bar, not the dark gray one just above it. That won’t do anything for you. Remember black bar will go far……
