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! 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″.

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. Check it out.

Inside Lightroom Learning Center – Lightroom 3 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!!!

Lightroom Tip - Using Snapshot record sequence of edits Lightroom v1 has a powerful new feature called 'Snapshot' which allows you to save and re-apply a sequence of edits on any image. It's a bit like Photoshops' Action but far easier to use. It can be found under the History Panel on the left hand side of Develop Module. Snapshot Function in Lightroom It is used as follows: Perform a sequence of edits in the Develop Module which will be automatically recored in the History section. when you have finished right click on any one of the steps in the history list You will see the "Create Snapshot" indicator appear as shown below The snapshot is saved with the name of the action you highlighted and will be available under the Snapshot menu for use on any future image editing session You can then re-name the Snapshot to something more meaningfull and use it on any future session. Creating the Snapshot Function in Lightroom This is not as powerful as Actions in Photoshop, but it's not meant to be. Try it out and let me know what you think.

LR/GMail – Send your images via GMail directly from Lightroom 2Photographer's Toolbox | Photographer's Toolbox We’ve just released the latest Lightroom 2 plug-in by Timothy Armes - LR/GMail. This export plug-in will send exported images by email using your GMail account. As an extra nicety, the addresses in your “My Contacts” group are downloaded from your Google account so that they can be offered automatically as you type into the To, Cc and Bcc fields. The plug-in also tracks to whom you’ve send each photo, which may prove useful to your workflow. There’s one caveat: the plug-in needs to connect to Google’s SMTP server to send emails, and this may not be possible if you’re behind a company firewall that prevents connections to SMTP servers.
