What I'm wondering is, why do my pictures not look the same across the board?! I'm sure I will have an experience that one time I upload a picture to Facebook or somewhere online and the picture not coming looking good. It is not possible to tell from a screenshot what Facebook did to your picture, but I would not be surprised if it converted it ...

You can "lock" the order by making a Custom Sort order. Once you have sorted the images you want using the rating, moving a thumbnail to an other place should enable the Custom Sort order. It's used here for renaming and an example is given there. You can also select it directly in the toolbar (you can see in the example I already have sorted the photos by ...

No, not automatically. If you select to manually apply the lens correction, it will use the right one automatically - assuming it has the profile for that particular lens. One option is to create a developer preset that applies the lens correction, and use this preset during the importing process. This way, all the imported photos will have the right lens ...

There isn't really a trick to seeing the Merged HDR result. Once you create the image from the popup HDR window, it will be processed and show up in your library next to the original images. Here is an example, I selected 3 images and the second image was the new HDR image: Keep in mind that the resulting HDR image has some unique attributes: DNG File ...

I'm sorry to tell you that whoever told you that it was some 'secret sauce' added in post production either doesn't know as much as they think they do or has been having you on. What you're seeing in the example images is from an effect called cross-polarisation. It's where light entering the camera has interacted with multiple polarisers. In the images ...

Oliver's link contained the answer: Another way to accomplish the same thing without having to filter and select first, is to go up to Photo in the menu bar (top left of your Lightroom screen), and choose Delete Rejected Photos... This will take you to the same Remove / Delete from Disk dialog. So, it's at the bottom of the Photo menu now (not the File ...

If you mean online gallery, certainly not Adobe's Revel. IIRC it doesn't even SHOW exif keywords. Flickr does a decent job with keywords. It shows them, and clicking one as a button takes you to not only all your photos with that keyword, but everyone else's, in two separate groups (perhaps there's a way to limit the filter to only your own photos).

Depending upon the browser you're using, you may not be comparing apples-to-apples (or jpegs-to-jpegs in this case). Facebook added the .webp compression for uploaded photos a while back and displays them in that format within browsers that support WebP. Details on the WebP format are available at: http://www.sitepoint.com/webp-image-format/ A good ...

The images look different because of different color spaces. To fix it stop using ProPhoto RGB color space and instead use sRGB to produce consistent results for web. Secondarily, determine if your browser is capable of managing color spaces and find out what it is using. Also, ensure your monitor is properly calibrated using a hardware solution.

The Tone Curve is an extension to the basic Sliders and thus provides a greater level of tone and contrast control by allowing the user to modify the various different levels of light within a photograph. One of the most apparent such features is the little circle on the “top Left Corner” of the Curve Box. By clicking on this little circle, the circle will ...

It looks like a filter hasn't been used here. Instead it looks like the photographer gas increased both the colour saturation and contrast of the image. And then to finish it off a vignette has been added.

Jeffrey Friedel´s “Geoencoding Support” Plugin for Lightroom offers geotagging abilities that are way beyond Lightroom´s capabilities including the ability to load GPX tracks and limit the import by time stamps.

There is a solution provided by Jeffrey Friedl and his awesome Lightroom plugin "Data Explorer". download and install the plugin select all the images, which have different canon styles applied, you want to process. the free version of the plugin is limited to handling a maximum of 500 images at once. Edit > Select all run the data explorer. File > Plug-in ...

I think I found a solution to your problem described by user C Wills in a DPReview Forums post from 2012. I have tried to make a step-by-step recipe of his advice here. Part one - create an unedited photo to copy all settings but crop factor from: Create an unedited version of any photo in your Lightroom collection with no settings or modifications ...

You can ensure that any and all edits you make in Lightroom are synchronised across both machines by using the XMP sidecar files. To enable these, go to 'Catalog Settings' and select the 'Metadata' tab - ensure the box marked 'Automatically write changes into XMP' is checked. This would allow you to keep all your originals on your NAS while using a ...

My answer is based on ".XMP" files (sidecar files) and consists of 2 parts. I explain two potential solutions in the first part and explain the parameters to use in the second one. Two solutions using XMP files This part explains 2 potential solutions, using : RAW and 2 XMP files TIFF and 1 XMP file 1) Using RAW and 2 XMPs In theory, one solution may ...

I'm really not seeing a commonality bringing images this blog together. Many of them are high key, but they aren't all; many of them have a raised black-point, but not all do. There's a very wide range of styles. (See How can this brightly colored yet gentle pastel-color effect be achieved? for that.) Some of them have a color cast added (as is often used ...
