Last week I was at Adobe MAX, and attended a seminar where instructor Jack Davis showed that not only can you make HDR and Panoramic images in the latest Lightroom, but that they can be combined into massive RAW files that are *not* your grandfather’s HDRs!
Adobe Lightroom has minimal support for a RAW+JPEG workflow. Their position is that this isn’t a workflow that their customers need or want… but together we can prove that wrong and convince them to add it!
DxO FilmPack is an awesome tool for creating a genuine film look, or simply crafting your own cool vintage/film-ish/not-digital look for your photos. Sending one photo at a time when you have dozens or even hundreds to process though sounds like no fun; fortunately DxO FilmPack has a great batch processing feature, which is handled just as easily as a single photo is from within Lightroom.
I have a project in Lightroom where I need to share some near-final images with someone else for retouching, and in figuring out most efficient way to handle this, realized a couple of pretty cool things about file management in Lightroom.
Landscape scenes can look even more beautiful with a long exposure. However, a long exposure can blur subjects and elements we want to remain sharp. With a little forethought in the field, and a touch of post processing magic, you can get the best of both worlds.
This is a simple test of how DxO OpticsPro 10 and its new DxO ClearView tool fares with a very hazy image, and a comparison to assess how best to achieve equivalent or similar anti-haze results with each of each of Aperture, Lightroom and Capture One Pro.
Adobe Lightroom CC (no longer Adobe Photoshop Lightroom) is available for download, and my favorite new features are tiny ones… but they bring the file organization workflow just a little closer to what we had in Aperture.
