Video – Vignetting and Edge Darkening

Today I had to share something that happened to me recently when I was working on my photos. I don’t know why it happens but there’s a noticeable difference in the edge-darkening effects that the Lens Correction sliders give vs. the Post-Crop Vignetting sliders. To me, one is clearly better then the other. In the video, I’ll go over each one and I think you’ll see which one wins out in a heartbeat. I’m...

Video – Multi Photo Picture Packages

I have the absolute coolest trick to share for those of you who like Print module templates and want to do something more with them. First I have to give credit where credit is due. The tip came from Enzo in Italy last week in the Q&A post that I did. I had answered a question about putting multiple photos into a picture package layout and said that it couldn’t be done. Well, thanks to this tip from Enzo, that’s not...

Video – Interview with Adobe's Tom Hogarty

Today I’ve got something a little different for you. Instead of listening to my voice for 5 minutes, you get to listen to Adobe’s Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty (and my voice a little).

Topics such as some of the pro DSLRs that shoot video and Lightroom’s camera profiles as well as the DNG...

Video – Jagged ID Plates and Printing

This week’s video is on a topic that’s bit weird – jagged Identity Plates. See, if you’ve never tried to import a custom identity plate graphic into Lightroom then you’ve probably never had this problem. But if you have then you’re probably about ready to shoot somebody. Just about every time I try to use a custom graphic in the Print module as an Identity Plate it comes up jagged on the page....

Video – White Balance for JPEGs and TIFFs

I gotta say, when I discovered this week’s video tip I was pretty excited. I shoot in Raw 100% of the time now but I’ll still have to deal with JPEGs because a) I have older files that I didn’t shoot in raw, b) I’ll have files from my wife’s point-n-shoot that are JPEGs, c) some one gives me a file to work on that isn’t raw. Well, one of the biggest challenges is getting the right color balance and...
