There are situations when the best method to get a perfectly sharp landscape image is to focus stack it. In this video tutorial, photographer Mark Denney will show you the fastest way to do it and end up with perfect results.
Question for you: who uses the Lightroom Publish services? If you do, you’re probably already enjoying the time it’s saving you. Sleeping in later, enjoying extended holidays, spending more time with the kids etc. Ah, choices, choices.
OK, I might be exaggerating. A little. But really, the humble Publish function in LR has to be one of the best tools a busy photographer can have – and it’s been hiding in plain sight if the folks I talk to about it are anything to go by. Trust me. It just saves so much time!
Why? How? Well let’s start by taking a quick look at the nature and functionality of Lightroom. As well as being an excellent RAW convertor, it’s a brilliant organiser of images – I have over 250,000 in my main catalogue and I can rapidly locate anything using a variety of search criteria. I can even find all the images I took at a certain ISO with a selection of camera bodies. And I only store locally the original RAW or PSD files – OK I have some JPGs in the catalogue as well but these are my original full sized-images when I shoot JPG in camera. I don’t store a selection of different-sized files for different purposes with a variety of watermarks – for Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, website use etc. So what do I do instead? I Publish!
Lightroom’s Auto Mask option is a useful tool that can save you a lot of time. But this video from Signature Edits shows you how you can make the Auto Mask feature even faster and more efficient. This way you’ll be able to mask even very complex images in a few seconds, which will save you even more post-processing time.
Even if you know how to use Lightroom, your workflow may still be a bit chaotic (I know mine is). If you work with a lot of photos at once, Tyler Stalman guides you through his rating system that will help you become faster, better organized and more consistent in culling and editing your images.
It’s been a few years now since Adobe launched their popular Lightroom Coffee Break series on Youtube. However, their focus on Lightroom Classic has been leaving out those who use Lightroom CC–that is until now. For the first time since its inception, the creators of the series have now also included content specifically made for Lightroom CC users.
In the latest Lightroom Classic CC update, Adobe has introduced some novelties. The 7.3 version contains new color profiles, some bugs have been fixed, and new cameras and lenses are supported – including the Sony A7III.
The previously announced speed boost of Lightroom Classic is here. Today, Adobe has released the latest update of Lightroom Classic, version 7.2. It mainly focuses on performance, but also makes it easier to organize your files. The latest update makes Lightroom Classic faster, which was one of the main concerns of its users. However, it seems not everyone will experience the speed boost, at least not yet. It all depends on your computer’s hardware.
Lightroom is filled with little “tricks” that can help you speed up your workflow and make the editing process more efficient and accurate. If you use Lightroom to edit your photos, then you probably already know what it’s capable of. But photographer Chris Eyre-Walker shares some of the lesser-known features you might not have heard of, and they can be extremely useful for all the Lightroom users out there.
