Just figured I’d let you know (if you’re at Photoshop World) that Adobe actually has 2 booths on the expo floor (Booth #455) at Photoshop World. I’ll be at the 2nd booth around 3:30 on Sunday for a while too. The 2nd booth is next to Westcott’s “Shootout Bays”. The idea is that you shoot some photos of the live models (lit with Westcott’s lights) which is an awesome experience in itself because of the creative sets that Westcott produces. Then take your images right next door to Adobe’s lab, upload them to Lightroom 4 and play until your heart’s content. You’ll even be able to submit your favorite photo to Adobe and they’ll pick 3 winners who get a copy of Lightroom 4 and one grand prize winner who will get CS6 Design Premium when it ships. Sweet!!

    Matt, PSW was a blast, and I really enjoyed talking to you. I know this is off topic for this post, but you were in the NIK booth on Sunday ~ 1200 doing a demo on HDR. Towards the end you showed a cool oil painting filter/effect you applied to the HDR of the building you were working on. I was in the process of buying the NIK software when you were talking and I did not catch how you did that effect. Can you help me out? HJ

    Hi Matt – Two quick questions, and maybe it’s just me. I’ve upgraded to Lightroom 4. When I adjust DNG images (which all of mine are) in Lightroom and then send them to Photoshop, my adjustments no longer carry forward into Photoshop. I’ve found a work-around (export as full size tif’s into same folder first), but this is an additional step (more work, more time).

    Also, when importing images from a card as DNG’s (which I always do), I’m no longer able to simply name them as, for example, John Doe 0001. Instead, I get
    John Doe 0001-1, -2, -3, etc. I end up re-naming them in Lightroom, but again, more steps, more work, more time.

    Am I doing something wrong, or is Adobe addressing these issues? Many thanks. Keep up the good work.
