I am all about speeding up my workflow at the moment! If there’s a way to shave even seconds off my post-production work then I’m going to take it. Of course, maintaining quality in your work is important and I’m not advocating sending out sloppy images and cutting corners. But often, the key is to work smarter, and that involves using the software to its full potential, including any shortcuts and lesser-known techniques that could dramatically improve your productivity at the click of a button. This video from Kevin Raposo shows you 5 of these tips that could potentially be a game-changer in your Lightroom workflow.
I remember when I started shooting RAW and discovered Lightroom back in 2011. I was thrilled and overwhelmed by all the possibilities that were suddenly before me. And even though I wasn’t all that new at photography, it sure felt like it since this was a whole new world.
If you can relate, Nigel Danson has a video for you. He gives you seven simple Lightroom tips that you should definitely know if you’re new to photography, shooting RAW, or Lightroom. And trust me, they work, and they’ll help you raise your editing to a whole new level.
What’s your preferred method for editing colors in Lightroom? Do you use the Calibration panel sitting at the bottom of the Develop module? I usually play around with HSL sliders, and I don’t think I’ve ever used Calibration. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to watch this video. Mango Street’s Daniel Inskeep tells you about this powerful tool and gives you some examples of just how much you can achieve with it.
Matt Klowskowski has been a staple in the Lightroom and Photoshop worlds for years. He’s written over 20 books on the subject, was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame (yup, apparently that’s a thing) and is an instructor at KelbyOne. Well, Matt also posts to Youtube. And in this video, he’s bringing us five Lightroom Classic tips that we (probably) didn’t know.
Unlike a lot of videos that just rattle off a bunch of tips without context, Matt actually takes the time to show some quick practical examples for each of these tips and why you might want to use them. He demonstrates how they can help you with your process and workflow to get better results.
In his recent tutorial, photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich drew our attention to some major mistakes we make when editing documentary and travel images. Now he’s taking things to a higher level. Mitchell has just announced an in-depth tutorial for editing these kinds of images. He guides you through editing one of his photos, so you can follow along, one step at a time. Even though you can edit Mitchell’s image, it’s not about following a certain trend or replicating a certain look. The goal is to learn how to edit a documentary photo of life to be lifelike.
As I mentioned a gazillion times before, we all make mistakes and we learn from them. But some mistakes are more common than others and they persist even though they’re “rookie mistakes.” In this video, Mitchell Kanashkevich draws your attention to them and gives you five tips that will help you to stop making them.
Editing photos in Lightroom is my favorite, other than shooting them. It’s fast and convenient, and I try to do as much as I can here so oftentimes I don’t even have to use Photoshop. In this video, Anthony Morganti has a treat for all portrait photographers and retouchers who need a quick way to soften skin. In Lightroom, you can do it pretty much with one click, and Anthony will show you how.
Lazy or not, I believe most of us would like to save some time when it comes to image editing. I know I’d always rather be outside and take photos than stay at home and stare at the monitor while editing them. Well, if you can relate to this, Serge Ramelli has just the video for you. He’ll show you a neat technique in Lightroom that he calls “Dodge and Burn for lazy people.” It’s very simple to do, and it could save you some precious time.
A couple of years back, It was difficult for me to get accurate colors while post-processing an Image. I had been struggling to get my head around Adobe Lightroom just to get right colors in my images.
I was having a hard time editing the skin colors of newborns and portraits. I was seeing a strong yellow color cast in my nature and wildlife images. I was wondering how to get rid of it. In an image, the colors of the shirt were different than the actual colors of the shirt. I was clueless about how to identify and remove the color tint, green color reflection from the eyeglass. And the list goes on…
