Video – The Trick to Getting Brighter Prints

The other week I posted some presets and a tip on how to get brighter prints. Basically, the idea was that our LCD screens (or at least mine) seem to cause my photos to look brighter on screen than they do when I print them. It’s not something that soft proofing would fix so I typically have some presets to adjust the Brightness slider. Another thing I do is create a test print. Well, this video will show you a way to create...

Video – Lightroom Camera Calibration

Happy Friday. This week we’re going to take a look at the Camera Calibration panel. There’s a few different things you can do here from customizing color based on your camera to using a color target. Also, there’s a couple of things I mentioned in the video. First, here’s the link to the article from Eric Chan if you want to delve into this topic more.

Video – Moving from iPhoto to Lightroom 3

As I mentioned in the video, it’s a little clunky but it can be done. The main thing you have to decide is whether you want two copies of your photos...

Video – Target Collection Coolness

OK, if you’re into using Collections then I’ve got a really cool tip for you this week. They’re called target collections and they work in Lightroom 2 and Lightroom 3. It’s a different (and more convenient) way to add photos to a collection that you’ve already created.

Video – Anatomy of a Lightroom Preset

I thought it would be cool to take a quick look at the anatomy of a preset. What goes on behind the scenes as I come up with a preset and then what kind of things to take into consideration when you’re actually saving the preset itself. For example, some presets of mine include white balance and toning adjustments (Exposure, blacks, etc…) and some don’t. In this week’s video I’ll go into why that is along...
