Getting Rid of Green and Purple Fringe Using Lightroom’s Defringe Eyedropper

This one works in either Lightroom Classic or ‘LR cloud’ and it’s a great tool for getting rid of those nasty green and purple or magenta fringe around the edges of things (it’s a common lens issue called “Chromatic Aberration”). Here’s how to use the Defringe Eyedropper to get rid of it fast: Above: Here’s our original image,...

Transfer Local Adjustment Presets to Camera Raw

Ever since Lightroom Classic (LrC) and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) began sharing develop presets I’ve found myself using ACR more and more, such as when sending a copy as a smart object from LrC. However, despite sharing develop presets local adjustment presets are unrelated silos that exist separately in both programs. Here’s how you can manually transfer...

How To Rename Your Photos Without Lightroom Losing Track of Them

If you go on your computer, open a folder full of images, and change their names, Lightroom Classic loses track of those images because it tracks them by their name. It’s looking for an image named “7A2A4600.CR3” but you changed it’s name on your computer to “Disney with the Kids – 001.CR3” and while you still see its thumbnail in Lightroom Classic,...

How To Make Your “Grass Greener” in Lightroom

Terry White is back with an awesome Lightroom tutorial (he’s doing this on Lightroom mobile, but it works the same way in Classic or LC cloud), and while the title is making the grass greener, he goes beyond that and fixes other things in the image — lots of great stuff here! So cool, right? Thanks, Terry!!! Have a great...

Export from Lightroom Classic to Super Resolution

Building on my post from last week, I’ve been exploring other ways that people using Lightroom Classic (LrC) can take advantage of the Super Resolution feature added to the latest Adobe Camera Raw (ACR). Yes, at some point it is expected to be added to LrC, but until then … we’ve got to use it where it exists now. Local Smart Previews Last...

Should You Delete Your Bad Photos in Lightroom?

When I was teaching my session on “How to Organize Your Wildlife Images in Lightroom” at our Wildlife Photography Conference, I had a number of questions about whether or not to even keep images that that didn’t ‘make the cut’ (meaning, they’re not really keepers or picks or 5-star images — why keep those ones you don’t like?) . Get Ready To...

Super Res a Smart Preview?

Every now and again I’ll encounter someone using Lightroom Classic who has lost an original raw file that wasn’t backed up, and they are desperate to find a way to recover it. One place they turn to in their desperation are the copies they synced to the Lightroom cloud before the original was lost. However, photos synced from LrC to the cloud are only...

It’s “How Would I Edit Your Photo” Day on ‘The Grid” Today

Just two-1/2 hours left to submit an image for our “How would I edit your photo?” day today on “The Grid.” Send in one of your RAW (or JPEG or TIFF) totally unedited shots and live on the air today I’ll take it through the process using Lightroom (and if necessary, some Photoshop) to take it to a finished image. We do this once and month and it’s super...

Why Lightroom ‘cloud’ Doesn’t Have Printing

Last week during The Wildlife Photography Conference I did a session on “How to print your wildlife photos” and it, of course, centered on Lightroom Classic being your printing tool. Its print module is one of the best parts of Classic, and ever since it was introduced I totally stopped printing from within Photoshop altogether. It’s that much better....
