Lightroom News and Scott Kelby's Blog

Hi all. I’m posting over at Scott’s blog today so make sure you stop by and give it a read. As for Lightroom, the only big thing that happened this week is LR 2.7 was released. Mostly camera updates so if you fall into the category of owning one of the newly supported cameras you’ll want to grab the update. There’s also some fine tuning in the way that LR reads the raw file (called demosaicing). If you’re using LR 3 Beta most at this point (like I am), then it’s not very earth shattering as LR 3 is a lot better in this area. Camera Raw also has an update and it’ll work better with LR3 Beta now as well. You can find out the full details over at Tom Hogarty’s (Lightroom product manager) website.

    All these years of trying NOT to look like that and to look more natural. Now we’re trying to make it look unnatural again. Ahh technology.

    got a question regarding camera raw in LR2 and PScs4.

    under camera profiles I don’t see ACR 5.7, I only have ACR 3.? and ACR 4.4 and the camera beta 2 profiles. Shouldn’t there be the other ACR profiles?
    How and where do I get them to show up if so?

      It is my understanding that the camera profiles that are displayed in LR2 and CS4 are those that are the most recent for your camera. For the camera(s) you use, ACR 3.? and ACR 4.4 must be the most recent versions that had changes that were specific to them. If you used a Panasonic G10, for example, then you’d see ACR 5.7, since that’s the first version of ACR to support that camera. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    LR 2.7 use sharpening algoritms from LR 3 beta but I found that my photos from 20D look more ugly because of too much agressive sharpening methods on default settings! Look at my picture processing in version 2.6.1 and 2.7. You can see that on the skin there is to much noise in 2.7 too much sharpnes.

    New methods, ok fine but why they changing default settings? And another one about processing – with the same export setting my jpeg size is 3.9MB in LR 2.6.1 and 5MB on LR 2.7.

    Matt, quick question. Will the final release of Lightroom 3 allow you import the beta catalog when it comes out? I’m currently baking all my settings because I wasn’t sure that would be an option? Can you let us know how you will be handling this process?

        What I mean by baking is exporting my files as jpegs with the lightroom changes I’ve made. I’m just not sure if the final release is going to allow you to import the beta catalogue that we’re working with now. Does anyone know if that capability will be there?
