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! Note: for iOS users, the HDR mode requires a device that can capture in DNG such as an iPhone 6, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, iPhone SE, or iPad Pro 9.7″.

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!!!

The Amazing Marketing Power of Scott Kelby NOTE: Images with an icon next to them have been artificially shrunk to better fit your screen; click the icon to restore them, in place, to their regular size. If you're not really into digital photography, you may have never heard of Scott Kelby, but he's quite the media dynamo in the on-line digital-photography world. He founded a Photoshop user's club some years ago, and seemingly has never rested since. Scott's charisma, knowledge, and boundless energy has led him to become a well-followed go-to source of information for many in the digital-photography world. Yesterday, Scott published a post titled “Breaking News: Imagine having Layers in Lightroom. If you're not familiar with the subject, the technology he's suggesting has just been made possible would be a huge leap for photo editing workflow, and would overcome one of the major drawbacks of how programs like Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture allow you to work with your photos. The only problem is that it's not true.

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. See the box to the upper right for the download link (in orange) and installation instructions. 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. Overview If you don't see the panels in your Develop module, tap the tab key.

Lightroom Secrets | All Things Adobe Lightroom! My Plugins NOTE: Images with an icon next to them have been artificially shrunk to better fit your screen; click the icon to restore them, in place, to their regular 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. 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. I don't use Lr2 anymore, except for testing and for old stuff. New Plugin Stuff

However, if you switch back to “Process: 2010” in the “Camera Calibration” section of Develop, the preset will have its full effect.

LightroomNews Scott Kelby's Photoshop Insider Blog » Photoshop & Digital Photo How to Make Your Portraits POP with Lightroom The other day I wrote this Lightroom tutorial on my blog . I thought I'd share it here and see if anyone finds it helpful. I'm using a quick photo I took as an example for importing photos into Lightroom. So I didn't get the exposure right and I didn't find the best direction for the light. As a result she is a little too dark, her eye sockets have a little more shadow than they should, and there isn't quite as much pop. When editing a photo, there are a sequence of steps that I follow. In order of execution, there are four key things to adjust: White Balance Highlights (White Point) Shadows (Black Point) Mid Tones Before you do anything else, it is important to set these properly. Here's our original photo: First up: let's set the White Balance. Second thing we'll do is dial in the highlights. I'll bring down the Exposure slider slightly just until I don't see any clipped highlights. To adjust your shadows, or black point, you do the same thing but with the Black slider. OK.
