    Lightroom Mobile launched last week to a huge welcoming crowd at Photoshop World. Since then I’ve heard a lot of great feedback on it and I’m hopeful to see where things go in the future. Anyway, I had a cool tip to share that one of the blog readers (Brian) asked about last week. See, Lightroom Mobile uses collections on the iPad. When you’re looking at all of your collections though, you’re only going to see one photo that represents the collection. But sometimes that photo (that Lightroom chooses automatically) may not be a good representation of the collection for…

    First off I just wanted to give a HUGE thanks to everyone that came out to my seminars this week in Indianapolis and Columbus, OH. I had two awesome crowds and, while I’m really happy to be on my way home, I had a blast getting to meet everyone who came out. Anyway, I’m on the plane back, and had some time to think about common questions I get. One of those questions is about converting to DNG and whether or not it’s possible to convert to it after you do your Lightroom import. See, the Import dialog has a Copy as DNG option in it.

    I’m on the plane to Indianapolis right now, heading to teach my Lightroom seminar tomorrow (well, today when you read this). As I’m reviewing my notes, I realized there’s a bunch of little random things that people will come up and ask about throughout the day. Things that throw people off, have them searching around needlessly for settings, or simply things/settings that were just accidentally clicked on. So I thought I’d recap the top 5 I hear about. 1) Info Display – By default, Lightroom wants to put your photo “info” over the photo. Personally I hate…
  • Can You Apply Multiple Presets in Lightroom?

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    25 Mar 2014 | 7:16 am
    I get the question all the time… Can you stack multiple presets in Lightroom? The answer? You “kinda” can, but it’s not really stacking. See, each preset let’s you record a certain adjustment (Exposure, Highlights, vignetting, etc…) and it’s settings. So if I have my Exposure set to +1.00 when I create a preset, it’ll record that +1.00 as the Exposure setting as long as I check the Exposure checkbox in the Preset dialog (see below). Once I apply the preset to another photo it’ll set that photo’s Exposure setting to +1.00. No matter…

    I’m keenly aware that photographers would like to leave their laptops behind and head out on the road with just their DSLR, Camera Connection Kit and an iPad.  It’s not just pros on a shoot in the middle of a remote location, it extends all the way to every photography enthusiast who has debated with their spouse on the necessity of bringing a bulky laptop on the family vacation. This is something the Lightroom team wants to tackle with Lightroom mobile and customers can realize the beginning of this in a JPEG-only workflow.  But there are a few hurdles we need to address before…

  • Fuji Profiles for Portraits

    9 Apr 2014 | 5:50 pm
    One of the questions about the new Fuji profiles in Lightroom 5.4 was about how Lightroom now handles skin tones from Fuji Raw files. X cameras render skin tones beautifully. Lightrooms render has been less than stellar in comparison. Now with the profiles, there are far more options than before. In order to answer the question, I made a few comparison shots. Adobe Standard vs Provia Adobe Standard vs Astia Adobe Standard vs Pro Neg Std Choice of profile for skin tones is very subjective. It may be that you prefer the muted look of Pro Neg Std over Provia as a better start point for…

    I purchased and installed topaz detail. I installed and ran the Fusion express 2 file. When I to to Photo > Edit in, nothing shows up except = "There is no other external editor selected" It was there the day I installed it because I opened it and very briefly looked at it. A week went by and now nothing is there? I reran the fusion installer and that didn't help. Now I'm kind of wishing I would have tested the program before purchasing it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can access Topaz plugins thru Lightroom? Many thanks

    With the recent release of Lightroom 5.4 your images are no longer tethered to your computer. Adobe now offers an iOS app called Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom on the Web.

The Lightroom Mobile app is available for FREE on the app store.This is a pretty complete offering considering that it is version 1. It makes me hopeful that the team has much more in store for us.

    A few weeks ago, ACR 8.4 was released as a Release Candidate, but there was no sign of a Lightroom 5.4 RC.

  • How to Safely Rename Your Lightroom Catalog

    Laura Shoe
    20 Mar 2014 | 3:28 pm
    Many of you have Lightroom 5 catalogs with filenames such as “Lightroom 4 Catalog-2-2″. While Lightroom doesn’t care what the catalog is named, I of course find it less confusing that the filename reflect what it actually is. In this short video tutorial, I’ll show you how to safely rename your Lightroom catalog and the associated Previews file. You’ll also learn in this video how to move your catalog. For best quality, hit Play, and then click on the sprocket wheel in the bottom left and choose 720 HD from the Quality dropdown. Enjoyed this article? Enter your…

    Lightroom Killer Tips

  • Lightroom Mobile Tip: Selecting A Photo To Represent the Collection

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:14 am
    Lightroom Mobile launched last week to a huge welcoming crowd at Photoshop World. Since then I’ve heard a lot of great feedback on it and I’m hopeful to see where things go in the future. Anyway, I had a cool tip to share that one of the blog readers (Brian) asked about last week. See, Lightroom Mobile uses collections on the iPad. When you’re looking at all of your collections though, you’re only going to see one photo that represents the collection. But sometimes that photo (that Lightroom chooses automatically) may not be a good representation of the collection for…

    Well, it’s here. There’s been a lot of talk over Lightroom Mobile since Photoshop World Vegas 2013 (when Adobe first gave everyone a sneak peak). Now it’s here and I wanted to put together a quick tutorial for you. Also, don’t forget that I did a full Learning Center with 8 videos over at KelbyOne and if you’re a subscriber, those videos are always in the subscriber area for you to check out. 1. Getting Lightroom Mobile Up and Running First, you’ll need to download and install the app on your iPad. Here’s the link. Then you’ll need to update…
  • Converting To DNG After Importing To Lightroom

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    2 Apr 2014 | 11:01 pm
    First off I just wanted to give a HUGE thanks to everyone that came out to my seminars this week in Indianapolis and Columbus, OH. I had two awesome crowds and, while I’m really happy to be on my way home, I had a blast getting to meet everyone who came out. Anyway, I’m on the plane back, and had some time to think about common questions I get. One of those questions is about converting to DNG and whether or not it’s possible to convert to it after you do your Lightroom import. See, the Import dialog has a Copy as DNG option in it. But what if you’re just adding photos…
  • 5 Random Little Things In Lightroom That Throw People Off

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    31 Mar 2014 | 5:19 am
    I’m on the plane to Indianapolis right now, heading to teach my Lightroom seminar tomorrow (well, today when you read this). As I’m reviewing my notes, I realized there’s a bunch of little random things that people will come up and ask about throughout the day. Things that throw people off, have them searching around needlessly for settings, or simply things/settings that were just accidentally clicked on. So I thought I’d recap the top 5 I hear about. 1) Info Display – By default, Lightroom wants to put your photo “info” over the photo. Personally I hate…
  • Can You Apply Multiple Presets in Lightroom?

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    25 Mar 2014 | 7:16 am
    I get the question all the time… Can you stack multiple presets in Lightroom? The answer? You “kinda” can, but it’s not really stacking. See, each preset let’s you record a certain adjustment (Exposure, Highlights, vignetting, etc…) and it’s settings. So if I have my Exposure set to +1.00 when I create a preset, it’ll record that +1.00 as the Exposure setting as long as I check the Exposure checkbox in the Preset dialog (see below). Once I apply the preset to another photo it’ll set that photo’s Exposure setting to +1.00. No matter…
