Plug-in Review – Nik's Viveza for Lightroom

Plug-ins are getting really popular these days. I see this all the time in comments, forums, and questions from people I meet. Everyone asks about plug-ins lately. Now, since more and more of them seem to be integrated with Lightroom I figured I’d start picking away at some of the popular ones and doing a quick review on them. There’s also a quick 2-minute video demo but I had a couple problems with the video. As soon as I...

Tip – Changing the Picture Package Photo Crop

Woo hoo! It’s Friday which means it’s Tip day. Here’s one on the heels of yesterday’s post about the Picture Package layouts in the print module. I saw a few people posted a question in the comments area that I should have answered while recording the video (but I didn’t). So the question was how to change the crop of the photo inside of the picture package frame. For instance, when I put a photo into a...

So we’ll kick the Duotones off with the yellow presets I found in the list. They’re actually called...

Unfortunately I don’t have a very good management scheme. If you saw the video from last week on Managing Presets you saw my Presets panel and you...

Tip – Unlimited Undos

Most of you use Photoshop right? That means you’re probably used to the fact that Photoshop gives you 20 undos by default. So if you do more then 20 things to your photo, Photoshop drops the earlier ones and you’ll eventually not be able to undo (you’d basically have to start over if you needed to get back). Now you can change that in Photoshop’s Performance preferences but what about Lightroom? How does it...

Presets – Old Fashioned Effect

Here’s another preset that’s comes straight from the request lines (your comments). It’s an old fashioned faded kinda look and it comes complete with faded edges and everything. I’m actually really happy with it as I’ve always liked using my “Vintage New York” effect and this one adds a little more of that vintage look to a photo. Also, after you download the presets you’ll see...
