Julieanne Kost's Blog I’m excited to announce that Lightroom mobile now includes the ability to capture raw, high dynamic range (HDR) images! In the Lightroom mobile app, tap the camera icon and then choose HDR from the drop down at the bottom of the screen. Lightroom mobile automatically analyzes the scene to determine the appropriate spread of exposure values over three shots (most other apps only average two exposures). Then, Lightroom automatically aligns, de-ghosts, and tone maps the image, creating a 16-bit floating point DNG file which can then be edited as desired. The resulting DNG file offers a much larger dynamic range than a singe raw file while maintaining all other advantages of a raw file such as higher bit-depth per color, lack of JPEG compression, and the ability to address white balance after capture with no loss of information! Although, HDR files are larger, I believe the superior image quality and greater editing flexibility are well worth the increase in file size.

Adobe has released a second free beta for Lightroom 3 (“Lightroom 3 Beta 2” — Lr3b2) with a lot of bug fixes and speed improvements, and a few new goodies not found in Lr2 or the first Lightroom 3 beta, including: Basic video-file support. Initial tethered capture support for recent Nikon and Canon SLRs. For an overview of the user-visible changes, see the release notes in the Lr3b2 download, or even better, the traditional go-to exhaustive list is Victoria Bampton's “What's New” post. Is Lr3b2 Ready for Prime Time? Do make sure to see the “Primary Known Issues” in the release notes, including warnings about being a beta and keeping backups and data loss and such, but for what it's worth, unlike the first beta which was pretty rough, I think this one is good enough for prime time, and I use it for all my new photos.

Warming preset | This is a set of 2 presets with a wonderful warming effect. The resulting warm look is further enhanced with a vignette.The preset works equally well with JPEGs and Raws. As the name implies, it adjusts the white balance to add a wonderful warm tone to the image. It “tightens up” the dynamic range by applying a little fill light and recovery, boosts the saturation and then “sharpens” the overall image by using a combination of Clarity (mid-tone contrast enhancement) and sharpen sliders. There are two presets in this pack. A “regular” version and a “lite” version which just adds a little less of the warming effect. Check it out.

Photo being processed: D200 + 70-200mm f/2.8 @ 200 mm — 1/100 sec, f/4.5, ISO 320 — map & image data — nearby photosOn Top of the (Monochromatic) Worldvia the “Monochrome” preset discussed below Note for Lightroom 4 and Later: The presets in this article were developed for “Process: 2010”, which was standard in Lightroom 3.Lightroom 4 and later, however, default to a different process version, so these presets will appear to do nothing. However, if you switch back to “Process: 2010” in the “Camera Calibration” section of Develop, the preset will have its full effect. You can then leave it that way, or switch back to whatever process version you like, and the changes will be brought forward. The tone curve is one of the ways that Adobe Lightroom offers to adjust an image. Via the “Negative (Color)” Preset Via the “Monochrome” Preset

Lightroom and Photoshop Tutorials, Tips and Training by Laura Shoe Photographer's toolbox - your source for Lightroom Plugins and Web Engines Teaching Lightroom « Scott Kelby's Photoshop Insider Blog » Photoshop & Digital Photography Techniques, Tutorials, Books, Reviews & More When I’m teaching my Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it tour, I use Lightroom quite a bit during the day, and in one city one of the attendees came up and told me they had just bought Lightroom, and wanted my recommendations on where to go to learn Lightroom. Of course, I told him that we actually do a ton of Lightroom training, and he was like, “Really? I thought you guys just taught Photoshop.” I told him that Lightroom’s full name is “Adobe Photoshop Lightroom” and that Lightroom was part of the Photoshop family, and that we probably teach more about Lightroom than anyone on the planet. I gave him some ideas of what we do, but it really got me to thinking: If this guy at my live seminar doesn’t realize how much Lightroom training we actually offer, I wonder how many other people don’t realize all the Lightroom training we have available. (1) Our Lightroom magazine within a magazine! (2) We produce the free “Lightroom Killer Tips,” podcast hosted by Matt Kloskowski. Whew!!!

Snapshot on Export” Lightroom This plugin allows you to have Develop snapshots created automatically upon image export and, optionally, set image metadata like keywords. This plugin works in Lightroom 5, Lightroom 4 and Lightroom 3 (though some features may be missing in older versions of Lightroom). The same download works for both Windows and Mac. Introduction Creating snapshots on export can be useful so that even if you later make develop/cropping changes to an image — on purpose or by accident — you'll be able to inspect (or even revert to) the as-exported state. For example, I incorporate this plugin into the Export Preset that I use to generate photos I intend to include on my personal blog. Essentially, it's a form of data backup, and like other kinds of backups, it can provide a bit of piece of mind. This plugin is useful for exports to local disk, or those using any of the many other export plugins available for Lightroom, most of which can be found on Adobe's Lightroom Exchange web site.
