Two brand mistakes that are frustrating photographers

You might have noticed two companies in the photography industry doing things that are frustrating you. It’s possible one of these companies is even confusing you. Today I want to share two mistakes that I know are frustrating me, and could likely be frustrating you. My hope is that these companies notice some commentary here on Photofocus and respond to your frustrations. Nikon First up is Nikon, but before I dive in, know that I am a Nikon photographer. I have been forever and wi...

Four alternatives to Adobe Lightroom 2019

Adobe recently announced that it would both discontinue downloads of older versions of Creative Cloud apps (which includes Lightroom and Photoshop), and revoke the license for older software. Further, Adobe tweeted that consumers “may face potential claims of infringement by third parties.” For some photographers, the thought of continuing to use Adobe’s subscription-based products is unpalatable, and fortunately, there […] The post Four alternatives to Adobe Lightroom 2019 appeared first on DIY...

Exploring Range Mask Options: Depth

We’ve previously explored the Luminance and Color options for Range Mask, so let’s wrap up this series with a look at the Depth option. Note at the time of this writing, the Depth option currently only works with photos in HEIC file format captured on supported iPhones (7+, 8+, X, Xs, Xs Max, and Xr) using either the built-in Portrait mode or the Depth capture mode in the Lightroom camera. You can enable the Depth capture mode in the Lightroom camera (on the supported devices) by going to Set...

Seven crucial steps to get beautiful colors in Adobe Lightroom

A couple of years back, It was difficult for me to get accurate colors while post-processing an Image. I had been struggling to get my head around Adobe Lightroom just to get right colors in my images. I was having a hard time editing the skin colors of newborns and portraits.

May 2019 Update for Lightroom Classic, Lightroom, and Adobe Camera Raw

Today, Adobe has released an update for the Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw family of applications. Before getting into the new features that have been added, it is important to note that Adobe has dropped the “CC” from the names of Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom CC. This is because all versions of Lightroom are now only available via a Creative Cloud subscription, so there is no need to differentiate the CC version from the perpetual license version. One could make the case that having the “...

Adobe Renames Lightroom Again

Adobe has done it again. Adobe renamed Lightroom Again. First Adobe renamed Lightroom to Lightroom Classic CC. Then they released a “light” version of Lightroom and called it Lightroom CC (instead of Lightroom Elements). Now, almost two years later, Adobe is renaming Lightroom Classic CC to Lightroom Classic. Turns out, since recording this rant/video, Adobe also decided to change the name of Lightroom CC to just Lightroom. Which makes a complete 360, since the original name of Lightroom Clas...

Lightroom Can Tell You Which Lens Is Your Favorite

I learned this tip from UK-blogger/photographer/awesome guy Brian Worley and darn it’s a good one — it’s how to use a feature in Lightroom Classic to find out which lens (or lenses) you use the most. It’s a deceptively easy way to find out which lens is your favorite (it must be because you use it the most). STEP ONE:In Lightroom’s Library module; in the Catalog panel on the left, click on ‘All Photos.’ STEP TWO:Press the backslash key [ \ ] to bring up the Library Filter across the t...

Adobe Is Screwing With Its Cheapest Software Plan In the Scummiest Way

When Adobe switched from a flat price for its software products and updates to a subscription model a few years ago, many worried it could be used to discreetly introduce dramatic price increases down the road. Adobe claimed this wouldn’t be the case, but this week some users discovered that the cheapest Creative…Read more...

Create timelapses easily from directly within Lightroom with Timelapse+ Studio

Timelapses are a lot of fun to make, but they can sometimes be a bit of a hassle to assemble in post.

[Updated] The $9.99 Photography plan has vanished from the Adobe website – now $19.99

If this isn’t just a website glitch, then is going to upset one or two people. It appears that the $9.99 Photography plan for Creative Cloud has disappeared for US customers. You can still get a $9.99 package, but you won’t get Photoshop anymore. Oh, no. For that, you’ll be paying $19.99 instead.

Clearing Out Old External Editors

Over the years I’ve installed and tried many different third-party image editors from companies like ON1, Nik, Topaz, Perfectly Clear, and the like. Typically, when you install a product like these they will add an external editor preset to Lightroom Classic to make it easier to send a copy from Lightroom to a particular image editor. However, uninstalling the image editor may not remove the corresponding external editor preset from Lightroom. You may have even made a few custom external editor ...

All Synced Photographs

This special collection located in the Catalog panel of Lightroom Classic is very useful for helping us view and manage the photos synced with the cloud-based Lightroom ecosystem, but it can also be an opportunity for self-inflicted injury. Every photo that is synced with the cloud-based Lightroom, whether the photo originated in Lightroom Classic via a synced collection or originated in one of the cloud-based Lightroom apps, will show up in All Synced Photographs.

Tips for Syncing Lightroom Classic with Lightroom for Mobile

There are a few important, but really easy to miss settings in both Lightroom Classic and Lightroom for mobile that make using them together much more successful. Let’s take a look. Auto Import The first setting I use is located within the Lightroom for mobile app. I’m using it on an iPhone, but this works on both mobile platforms. Within the Lightroom for mobile app I designated one album (collection on Lightroom Classic) to be my “camera roll” that collects all of the photos I take wi...

Vocabulary: Eye AF and Related Terms

Eye-Start: A system invented by Minolta (?) whereby the camera turned on and began to autofocus when you put your eye to the viewfinder. Now used in some cameras to switch between the rear viewing screen and the eyepiece viewfinder.

How to Recover Shadows and Highlights Like a Pro—A Guide to Maximizing Details for Any Photograph Using Aurora HDR

By Richard Harrington We’ve all faced the same problem: photographs that lack contrast; images where the shadows and highlights look flat and the details are muddy. While the problem is common, the solutions are many. In this article, I want to show you several easy fixes (using built-in tools) — including some uncommon ones — that you should explore. We’ll also take a look at Aurora HDR, which works as a plugin to both Lightroom Classic and Photoshop. The Problem You open up...

When Photos Go Missing

An often overlooked aspect of the import process into Lightroom Classic is that the exact location of where to find those photos on your system is written into the catalog file at that time. The path to that location is stored inside the catalog along with all the metadata embedded in each imported photo, and that is what Lightroom uses to find the source photos as you do your work. As long as you use Lightroom to do all file maintenance tasks (such as move, rename, or delete imported photos and...

Lightroom Classic: What You Need To Know About Backing Up to a Secondary Drive

Backing up to a secondary drive on Import? Absolutely. Highly Recommended. However, here’s where people have told me they’ve gotten burned by not really understanding what that means. For example, they imported some images say…three or four months ago. They made collections, edited a bunch of images, added keywords, the whole nine yards. One day their computer’s hard drive crashes (hey, it happens), so they go to their secondary backup drive (the one where they auto-backed up their im...

Beta Release of Adobe DNG Converter 11.2.1

I recently learned that Adobe quietly dropped a beta version of the free DNG converter to help people with newly released cameras (since the last official update in Feb) gain support for their raw photos in Lightroom and Camera Raw. I can’t remember the last time that happened, and I thought it was pretty cool for them to make this available in between official updates. The following cameras are supported by this version of the converter: Canon EOS RPPanasonic LUMIX DC-FZ1000M2 (DC-FZ10002...

Why Sometimes in Lightroom You Can’t Choose a White Balance Preset

This is one I get asked a lot – usually, you go to the White Balance pop-up menu, and you see a list of various white balance presets to choose from (seen below), but sometimes you only get two choices: Auto and Custom. Why can’t you choose a White Balance Preset? Here’s why: ABOVE: White Balance Presets for a RAW image. When you shoot in RAW, the white balance hasn’t been decided yet. It initially shows you the one you had set in the camera, but it’s waiting for you to mak...

Well, the presets had disappeared, but only from view and only when certain photos were active (selected) in Develop.
