You only need one rule: File Name / Type → Copy Name = isn't empty.


In Lightroom 5 a photo can have three copyright states: I assume that, when you say my copyright information wasn't being applied automatically, the copyright status was not being set to Copyrighted. You can create a Smart Collection that searches for all photos with a copyright state that is not copyrighted:


Although you can't capture the true beauty of sunset light you can do a somewhat realistic effect in Lightroom. You need to scroll down on the sidebar until you reach split-toning. In there you should see sliders. You then set the highlights to a gold-ish colour (you can tweak this) change the balance to something in the region of 60-100. and the shadows to ...

It is likely that you are exporting the image using a different color profile like sRGB. It is also possible that your Color Profile setting for windows is set to sRGB and that is what Windows Photo Viewer is using. Note that in ...


When you stack images for the purpose of noise reduction, you shouldn't use blending. Use opacity to mix the layers to get the average: Layer 1 50% Layer 2 100% For more layers you use an opacity of 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 etc.: Layer 1 20% Layer 2 25% Layer 3 33% Layer 4 50% Layer 5 100%
