At Last! Full Size Preset Previews Are Here! (Wild Cheers Ensue!)

Greetings from Cincinnati (I’m up here for my Lightroom seminar today). Here’s a new feature that Adobe snuck into the recent Lightroom Classic 7.3 update — one we’ve been waiting for, for around 11 or so years — the ability to see a full-size preview of how a particular preset would look before we applied it. We’ve had a mini-preview available if you had the tiny Navigator panel open at the top of the left...

Managing Develop Presets After the 7.3 Update to Classic

The latest update to Lightroom Classic has a lot to love, as Scott shared yesterday. I think the profiles are a huge step forward. One of the new features that didn’t get a lot of attention though was the changes to Develop presets. First, upon launch of 7.3 you probably saw a somewhat strange message about updating develop presets to XMP, which may have left you scratching your head.

Process Version 4 Heads Up

Along with the name change to Lightroom Classic, we also got a new default Process Version (I addressed the new Process Version names previously), Process Version 4. The new Process Version (PV) is what enables the new Range Mask feature in the local adjustment tools, as well as improvement to the Auto Mask function. For the most part, your experience with the new PV should be pretty seamless, as all new photos will default to PV 4,...

How To Get Rid of Lightroom Stuff When There’s No “Delete”

Greetings from Dallas, Texas (I’m here today for my Lightroom seminar). On Friday, I did a video on how to add a watermark when you export an image, and one of my readers asked “How do you remove old watermarks that you don’t use anymore?
