A "Real" Reason to use Quick Develop

Yep, you read correctly. If you’ve been looking to make sense of where Quick Develop in the Library module really fits in you’re not alone. I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t find it very quick at all. However, Adobe’s Senior Director of Product Management, Kevin Connor, pointed out a very real use for it to me and once he did, I’ve found myself using it more lately. Click here to watch the...

Video – Desaturated Effect

The HSL/Color/Grayscale Panel is way cool when it comes to pumping up specific colors in your photo. I think the coolest part is that this is all being done to the raw file nondestructively.

Hey folks! We all use Photoshop right? So it’s natural to go from Lightroom into Photoshop. However, there’s a few settings that Lightroom needs to know about before you do it.

Video – Develop From Start to Finish

I’m veering off the normal “tips” video this week and doing something a little different. This time around I’m taking a photo thru the Develop module from start to finish. Basically, I’ll show you what I would do for a properly exposed photo, for the most part. I’ll go through what settings I would use and what settings I typically ignore. In the coming weeks I’ll take a look at problem...
