Video: Lightroom/Photoshop Before and After (Black and White Conversion)

This week I’m doing another Before/After video where I take a photo in Lightroom, hit the Reset button so we’re starting from scratch and walk you through the entire edit in Lightroom and over to Photoshop. This time around I’m converting to black and white so I’ll also show you the work I do to the photo in Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2....

Video – Calibration Profiles and Presets

Last week, I posted some of my Lightroom presets for the camera profiles that you find in the Camera Calibration panel in Lightroom. After I started reading through the questions and comments I realized that a lot of people didn’t know one of the huge benefits of using presets for the camera profiles.

After the last few stops in my Lightroom 4 Live Tour I realize there was a lot of questions on the Camera Calibration settings that basically, let you make your photo better with just one click.

Join Me for a Free Photoshop CS6 for Photographers Webcast Today

First off, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who came out to my Lightroom 4 Live seminar in Minneapolis yesterday. There were almost 350 photographers there. We had a great crowd, lots of laughs and everyone I spoke to seemed to learn a lot throughout the day (in spite of my poor drinking habits – sorry inside joke… you had to be there – and no, it has nothing to do with alcohol) If you’re in LA or Chicago,...
