    I know there are people out there that have no interest in Lightroom mobile or Photoshop, so here’s how to get Lightroom 6. It is a bit hard to find. Adobe are keen to have people go to the cloud. I think it’s great value, but I totally understand why people want to have a version that feels like their own. Go here: https://www.adobe.com/products/catalog/software._sl_id-contentfilter_sl_catalog_sl_software_sl_mostpopular.html. Click Buy, then change “I want to buy” from Full to Upgrade. In the next part ‘I own’, choose the version of Lightroom you’re upgrading from. This…

    There Are Two Ways You Can Obtain the New (2015) Version of Lightroom 1. Subscribe to Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription program, and get “Lightroom CC 2015″. The most cost-effective version for photographers is the CC Photography Program, which includes Lightroom, Photoshop, and unlimited syncing of photos from Lightroom to Lightroom mobile for mobile devices, and to Lightroom web. The cost is $9.99 USD/month, and all future updates are included in the price.  If you already are a CC subscriber, you can download the new Lightroom CC 2015 for free.   I personally think…

    I recently shot a series of images for a local community college’s annual report. One of the more interesting—and fun—images to shoot was a dramatic portrait of a member of the women’s basketball team. The goal was to produce a portrait that displayed determination, empowerment and strength: all attributes of the athletics program, this particular athlete, and the college overall. As I planned for the shoot, I wanted strong lighting to create drama. Since the athlete was a woman, I didn’t want the lighting to be too harsh. My first inclination was to use a beauty dish as my main…

    So sorry for getting this out so late today — we had a technical glitch that kept this awesome, awesome Lightroom CC episode sitting on a server somewhere, but now it’s free to roam out there on the interwebs. It’s our first episode talking about Lightroom CC, so we cover a bit in this episode (which is slightly longer than our regular episodes). Also, if you watched any of our four live Webinars Tuesday, some of this is going to be stuff you’ve already heard, but we have a few new things thrown in just for good measure. I’m covering the new Panos feature,…

    Hi Gang: This is a quick-fix that’s working for many folks who are having install issues with Lightroom CC, and luckily it’s a really easy. Here’s what to do: STEP ONE: Go to the Creative Cloud App – click on the little Gear icon in the top right corner of window and choose Preferences (as shown above).   STEP TWO: Click the Sign Out button (as shown above). STEP THREE: Sign right back in and that should fix the problem. NOTE: Two more things: (1) You need to sign out/in exactly the way I showed here — from the preferences. Don’t sign out any other way.
  • What the crop? Part 3: body parts

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    21 Apr 2015 | 10:01 pm
    When cropping people the general rule is to try to avoid cropping hands, feet and joints. When you crop at those points the image looks unfinished or haphazard, so try to crop between the joints. Here is a run down of cutting up bodies that would have Hannibal salivating. cropping feet = big no no cropping between feet and knees looks more deliberate and acceptable cropping between knees and hips is usually ok too, but notice in this example that the shorts and the lines on the socks create visual tension with the frame. Not the best crop. cropping the hand is usually another no-no cutting…

    $18,000,000,000.00 That’s how much money was stolen from consumers as early as 2013. Securing your logins, passwords, and sensitive information you use online is an often overlooked activity that many folks don’t think too much about – until there’s a problem. If you’re a business owner, it’s even more important that you secure and manage this data!

We’d like to clarify the things that matter when making a choice – so you can avoid making a bad decision. So let’s get right to it, here’s what you need to know.

    I’m not sure I’m great at anything. I pretend I am, but the reality is this: I am good at a few things, ok at some others and, in some areas, decidedly dragging down the curve and flat out sucking at them. I’d like to think of my photography addiction in the same way; I am not sure I am great at anything, but I have put lots of thought into how to get there. I think I am typical of many. Good at some, great at none. My day job as an advertising executive fuels my passion for photography. I have worked with many pros over the years on some big shoots.  Being around creative people fuels…
  • Split Tones Make Sweet Color Harmony

    10 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Color grading is one of those open ended subjects that is incredibly hard to perfect because of the seemingly endless amount of possibilities. With so many options it can be hard to know where to start! Many photographers have a hard time establishing a color palette and will simply resort to one of the popular blue/yellow or red/green combinations. Those craving a little more variety will inevitably resort to any number of actions or presets designed to run through a gamut of color combinations. What if there was a method to establish your color palette that made more sense and was faster to…

    Adobe have announced Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6. They ship today in the same installer. After a long gestation, some much requested features have finally come to fruition.

Face Recognition: Lightroom now has face detection built in as standard. You can draw and detect faces in Loupe and manage the faces, known and unknown in the new People view.

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…

  • How to fix incorrect aspect ratio? (images stretched horizontally after HDR merge)

    yaroslavvb
    26 Apr 2015 | 11:41 pm
    I have a 3:2 aspect ratio photos which are showing as if they are 16:9, any idea how to undo this? I don't see any controls on the Crop tool to do this. I suspect this is a bug in Lightroom CC (2015), it happens every time I try to do HDR merge. My original photos are 3:2 aspect ratio with 16:9 crop propagated from camera setting (Sony A7S). When I do HDR merge, it uses full 3:2 original images, but shows as if they are 16:9, so everything is stretched horizontally. Resetting the crop on original images doesn't fix things, it still shows result at 16:9 Any thoughts of a work-around are…

  • Keywording in LR6cc converted catalog-no tic box-no tag listing

    Rose Weir
    26 Apr 2015 | 8:47 pm
    Keywords are not there for past images in the keyword box when clicking on an individual image. At first I thought it was just connected to images from 2006. I checked current date images and no keywords in the Keyword Tags box. Clicking on a keyword which has numbers from the v5.7 catalog will have all the images containing that keyword display. This came to my attention when I added some tifs to a 2006 folder tonight and synchronized. Attempting to click the keyword tab for each tif had the little box disappear and no keyword resulted. In the metadata columns the result is 4 with NONE.

Problem is that you cannot hear the music halfway through some tracks and it's silent until the next track starts. Files are mp3. It can happen at any time....has been on the first track and the sixth track. Seems to be completely random. So far I have only previewed the slideshow in draft as I'm loath to spend the time building the (long!) slideshow it's going to be missing part of the music. Any suggestions?

  • Nikon D7200 and Lightroom 6 vs. Lightroom 5

    26 Apr 2015 | 5:05 pm
    I am totally confused about Lightroom 6 and the ability to read Nikon D7200 files vs, Lightroom 5. I am able to import the D7200 file to lightroom 6 and if so, why is there not an update for lightroom 5 to do the same. I thought it was Camera Raw that reads the files and if so, if you can read them in Lightroom 6, why wouldn't there be an update for Lightroom 5? Seems like a ploy to get you to update to Lightroom 6. The reason for asking, is I have been unable to get Lightroom 6 to work on one of my computers. Thanks, John

Some seriously clever design went into making a watch computer easy to use. 3. There are more apps than I…

    Watching the Aurora Borealis dance across the sky is an amazing experience. Sharing the experience with a small group of dedicated good-natured photographers makes witnessing a magical light show even better. It brings me great pleasure to share this multimedia slideshow with the world. There are so many stunning Northern Lights photographs in this slideshow. Such impressive work. I am so proud of the images that everyone captured and all of the fun that we shared despite the howling winds and challenging conditions. https://vimeo.com/123175791 Click the Full Screen icon in the far right-hand…

  • Video Tutorial on How to Upgrade to Lightroom CC & 6

    Laura Shoe
    22 Apr 2015 | 10:02 am
    Did you just purchase or do you plan to upgrade to Lightroom CC or 6 from an earlier version? If so, the upgrade process is usually straightforward, but it helps to be prepared in case it isn’t. Watch this video for details.   There are two scenarios not mentioned in this video. If you are installing from the Creative Cloud app (shown in the video), and Lightroom CC 2015 doesn’t show in the list of available apps, there are two possible issues: 1. Your computer may not support it. You have to have 64-bit Windows 7 or higher, or Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or higher. 2. A CC…
  • Adobe Releases Lightroom CC 2015 and Lightroom 6!

    Laura Shoe
    21 Apr 2015 | 9:19 am
    Adobe released the new version of Lightroom today! Officially there are two versions, “Lightroom CC 2015″ for Creative Cloud subscribers, and “Lightroom 6″, which is the  stand-alone perpetual-license version. (you’ll read almost no mention of 6 in the Adobe press release, but it is available.) As always, CC subscribers have access to syncing with Lightroom Mobile and Lightroom Web, but otherwise at this point the two new offerings are exactly the same. Nevertheless, Adobe is probably introducing this dual branding to enable it to offer future new features more…
  • Which Should I Buy, Lightroom CC 2015 or Lightroom 6?

    Laura Shoe
    21 Apr 2015 | 9:17 am
    There Are Two Ways You Can Obtain the New (2015) Version of Lightroom 1. Subscribe to Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription program, and get “Lightroom CC 2015″. The most cost-effective version for photographers is the CC Photography Program, which includes Lightroom, Photoshop, and unlimited syncing of photos from Lightroom to Lightroom mobile for mobile devices, and to Lightroom web. The cost is $9.99 USD/month, and all future updates are included in the price.  If you already are a CC subscriber, you can download the new Lightroom CC 2015 for free.   I personally think…

  • “The Lightroom Show” Episode #11 is Finally (finally!) Here!

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    24 Apr 2015 | 6:02 pm
    So sorry for getting this out so late today — we had a technical glitch that kept this awesome, awesome Lightroom CC episode sitting on a server somewhere, but now it’s free to roam out there on the interwebs. It’s our first episode talking about Lightroom CC, so we cover a bit in this episode (which is slightly longer than our regular episodes). Also, if you watched any of our four live Webinars Tuesday, some of this is going to be stuff you’ve already heard, but we have a few new things thrown in just for good measure. I’m covering the new Panos feature,…
  • If You’re Having Lightroom CC Install Issues

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    23 Apr 2015 | 4:31 am
    Hi Gang: This is a quick-fix that’s working for many folks who are having install issues with Lightroom CC, and luckily it’s a really easy. Here’s what to do: STEP ONE: Go to the Creative Cloud App – click on the little Gear icon in the top right corner of window and choose Preferences (as shown above).   STEP TWO: Click the Sign Out button (as shown above). STEP THREE: Sign right back in and that should fix the problem. NOTE: Two more things: (1) You need to sign out/in exactly the way I showed here — from the preferences. Don’t sign out any other way.
  • What the crop? Part 3: body parts

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    21 Apr 2015 | 10:01 pm
    When cropping people the general rule is to try to avoid cropping hands, feet and joints. When you crop at those points the image looks unfinished or haphazard, so try to crop between the joints. Here is a run down of cutting up bodies that would have Hannibal salivating. cropping feet = big no no cropping between feet and knees looks more deliberate and acceptable cropping between knees and hips is usually ok too, but notice in this example that the shorts and the lines on the socks create visual tension with the frame. Not the best crop. cropping the hand is usually another no-no cutting…
