    Hey folks, I know it’s been quiet here since my talks at the SWPP convention, which went really well. Currently I’m in a book writing phase so it’s been nose to the grindstone for the last few months. I’m still writing for Photoshop User magazine, but I think April is the next issue I’ll be in, discussing Tiffen’s DFX v4.0, a fantastic plugin for Lightroom. Once the current project is over, I’ll be settling in to write a few short photo related ebooks. These have all been started in the past, but with the current schedule and pace, I aim to finish…

    When you are working on a shoot where your lighting and camera settings are fixed, there are changes that you would like to quickly pass to the other images in the shoots. Getting this done quickly can be a great time saver in your workflow. Let me speed this up just a little bit further by adding another tool to your arsenal – Auto Sync. When you make some develop setting changes to your images, you have the option to select the images that are next to the one that you changed.  Pressing the Sync button at the bottom of the basic panel lets you take the settings that you set for the…

    24 Feb 2015 | 12:16 am
    Above: the uncropped, un-lens-corrected image. I love the Upright feature Adobe added to Lightroom for fixing lens problems. Love, love, love it! Now, beyond that, one feature I love within it is the “Constrain to Crop” feature, because when I turn it on, it automatically crops away any white border areas left over from Upright’s automated correction. However, there’s a little gotcha. Above: Here’s the image after I hit the “Auto” upright correction button, with the Constrain Crop checked on. If I decide I don’t like the way it cropped the image (or I want…

    Adobe announced the availability of Lightroom mobile for Android Devices using Jellybean, KitKat, or Lollipop. Using Collections, you can sync files to the device to allow ratings & flagging to make selections, apply Lightroom mobile Presets, and change a range of settings. These changes sync back to Lightroom automatically. As with iOS versions, the files must go back to the server before being available on the device. A version of the files can be viewed on Lightroom web, when logged in with your Adobe ID. Lightroom mobile is part of the CC bundles, so you need an account to use it.

  • Import Catalog Problem

    JeffL
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:15 pm
    I just came back from a photography trip and have my pictures and LR5 Catalog on an external HD that I want to move onto my Mac Desktop(I used FAT32 since my laptop is Windows 8.1). I went to import this catalog onto my Mac however after I selected all folders I did not see the option 'Copy New Photos To A New Location And Import.' All that was available were the two other options: 'Don't import new photos' and 'Add new photos to catalog without moving.' I don't understand why the option I need is not available. I would appreciate any input. Thanks, Jeff

However the final image has to be between 2 and 4 MB in size.
