Lightroom 2 Quicktips
In today's Lightroom video tutorial I show you the best way to take photos from your laptop to your desktop when you've been shooting and editing your pictures on the road. You can keep all your RAW files and the lightroom edits intact and still merge those pictures back into your master Lightroom catalog. Learn how..
It's the end of our second week of Lightroom 2 tips and today we look at all the myriad ways Adobe have given us to add keywords to our images. I know it's something most of us shy away from doing. Who needs another post processing step when all we're really interested in is how the picture looks? But keywording is one of those tasks that given just a little of prior thought can be fast, consistant and incredibly useful. So let's delve into the tools we have available.
Those of you that know me know how much I love my vignettes. Well Adobe made me very happy with Lightroom 2. They added a post-crop vignette feature that does everything I could have wanted. So today Im going to show you all about how to use it.
Today’s show is a bit off-plan. I intended to show you the new features of LR2 but what I’m showing today is stuff you could already do in LR1. Adobe did make it a little tidier and cleverer so I guess it counts. Today we’ll look at how to setup export plugins that give lightroom more useful export capabilities. In particular we’ll see a couple of different ways to upload to Flickr directly from Lightroom. We’ll also look at where you can find more interesting and useful plugins.
Today we continue looking at our landscape image. We've already corrected the exposure in the sky but now it's time to get a little more creative by bringing the sky and ground tones together and then adding a smoke coloured filter. We also fix up some more light issues and refocus the viewer's attention using a little more adjustment brush.
