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...

Video Tip – Smart Collections

Happy video tip Friday! I came up with a really neat tip this week for using Smart Collections for finding my processed HDR images. I started writing it down but it just works so much better as a video. Plus, it gave me the chance to extend on it and explain some examples that, even if you’re not into HDR, you can still make use of the tip. If you’ve got any personal ideas on how you use Smart Collections (or this video...

In this video I’ll show you how you can bring those areas back and...

I’ll be the first to admit, it’s more or less of a hack in Lightroom, as it’s not really meant for this. However,...

Video – The Adjustment Brush Color Swatch

I’ve got another video up that goes over an area I struggled with until recently. That little color swatch in the Adjustment Brush tool (in LR 2 only), always acted kinda weird for me. Then I sat down and had a talk with it and said “Listen here color swatch thingee, we need to have a talk…” – kidding.

Video – Folders and Hard Drives in LR2

Greetings from chilly (but not really cold) Bar Harbor, Maine. Hey, I’m a Florida guy, what can I say – anything below 70ยบ F is cold Anyway, this week I created a video about a feature in Lightroom 2 that has changed the way I store my photos in Lightroom. In fact, I’m teaching a workshop in Bar Harbor this week and some one came up to me on the first night and commented on how much better Lightroom 2 handles the...
