    This isn’t one of those tips that you’re going to use every day, but when you need it, it’s really an image-saver. It’s about bringing out shadow detail in a big way using a workaround that does take a few steps, but it’s super easy (after it all goes faster than you’d think). Here’s what we’re doing:   STEP ONE: Here’s the original image. The area in the foreground is pretty dark, so to open up that area, we reach for the Shadows slider. STEP TWO: Here I cranked the Shadows slider all the way to +100, and it helped a little bit, but…

    Hi, I've got 2 questions. 1. I have a shot of water, and the reflection is distracting. Is there a feature similar to a Polarizing filter within Lightroom I could use to lessen the effect? 2. I took a shot using the HDR feature on the camera. The background is fine, but the person has a ghost image. Is there a relatively easy way to clean this up? Thanks!

    I started off with LR 3 (I use the latest version now) using Adobe's publish service then I switched to Jeffery Friedl's. Maybe the problem stems from that. Anyway it happens that the photo count in some of my publish catalogues doesn't agree with the count in the corresponding Flickr albums. Not by much, but it's annoying. I don't suppose there's any way to get a list of the photos in a LR catalogue, is there? Not much point, I suppose, because I doubt it's possible to get a list of the photos in a Flickr album, and no good way to link the two... Is there anything I can realistically do…

    ARRRRRGGGGHHHH... If you can help me I will be eternally grateful! LR will occasionally (rarely) import part of a folder, but more often than not, it will import nothing. I can't find any pattern in this. It does not matter what the source of the import is (HD, ext HD, CF etc.). Usually what happens is: I initiate the import dialog, file names show up but no image previews are shown (just gray). When I hit 'import' LR says "importing files" but the progress bar just hangs. Eventually when I cancel the import (this has been anywhere between 2 minutes and 12 hours) the dialog box says…

As per the link here (https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1012537?tstart=0), i can exclude videos by clicking on the button - but would like a more permanent way of doing so. any idea how this can be done?

    This isn’t one of those tips that you’re going to use every day, but when you need it, it’s really an image-saver. It’s about bringing out shadow detail in a big way using a workaround that does take a few steps, but it’s super easy (after it all goes faster than you’d think). Here’s what we’re doing:   STEP ONE: Here’s the original image. The area in the foreground is pretty dark, so to open up that area, we reach for the Shadows slider. STEP TWO: Here I cranked the Shadows slider all the way to +100, and it helped a little bit, but…

  • Learning Opportunities for 2015

    Rob Sylvan
    3 Jan 2015 | 1:38 pm
    Happy New Year! I hope you managed some R&R during the holidays. I love the start of the year as it gives me pause to look back on where I have been and plan for where I hope to go in the future. I’m pretty excited about what 2015 has to offer as I already have a number of great opportunities scheduled throughout the year. First off is my ongoing online Lightroom class I teach through the Bryan Peterson Schoool of Photography. I’ve been teaching there for a number of years and I love that I get students from all over the world. My Lightroom class starts on the first Friday of…
  • 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…
