Since the cloth is white, and the other colour is black, you could simply desaturate( remove all saturation) at whole region of cloth. I've done the same multiple times

First, understand there is no "normal" post processing. You can spend hours on one image and use a dozen tools to achieve what you desire. Or you could convert from RAW to JPEG and call it a day. If you are already achieving what you desire by simply using Lightroom, that is great. Many of the recent features added to Lightroom have been added to support ...

Interestingly, I also found the same blog when starting out with Lightroom. There are many ways to get images organized and I found have a file-system structure is very helpful. First is that the filesystem structure is accessible without Lightroom to every other program. You can use it to quickly located images without having to load Lightroom and wait for ...

I use a global to local method for editing. Everything goes through Lightroom to tag, keyword, organize and make global corrections and adjustments. I then take images in Photoshop for only the one's that need a greater amount of attention like skin re-touching, manipulation, or removal. If they need one step further I bring them into PS plugins. I'd say of ...

I would suggest you to use Lightroom as the master software to deal with your images. Why because LR is suitable for organizing the images. You can capture directly from camera and create libraries. Automatic saving and back up is the main advantage of Light room. Basic enhancement like white balance,contrast,saturation,lens correction,Noise reduction ...

Just think of the future when Lightroom may not exist anymore : your collections would be useless. Whereas your folders will still exist. And you may need them to import your collections in the next trendy software. Moreover, if you want to upload your pictures, you will use the regular files manager and it will be more efficient to have properly named ...

This has been a known problem in Lightroom for over 2 years, with no response from Adobe. I'm not sure what the precision is, but if you're too close to a standard aspect ratio it just uses the standard ratio. I needed to do a 13x10 crop and LR refused to store it as a custom ratio, always choosing 8½x11 instead. Curiously, 8½x11 is ...

I hope it could be helpful for you: Create manual collection "__bookmarks" Put in this collection just a single representative photo of every few folders you work on actually. Everytime you need to move to the folder of your choice: a) go to "__bookmarks" b) right click a photo of your interest c) choose "Go to folder in library" Additionally you can ...

There is a bug in 2015.5 (maybe earlier not sure) that prevents NEF's from showing the correct lens. Here's one description at Adobe. Generally this does not prevent correct selection of lens profiles, at least it did not for me, it is a visibility issue mostly. At the end of that thread is a link to the (very terse) bug report saying they hope for a fix ...

You can use Mac OS X's built-in Preview application to combine PDFs into a single PDF file. Also built-in to Mac OS X is the ability to export any file as PDF (either in the File > Export As... menu if available, or in the Print to PDF exporter in the Print dialog). For each of the 10 photos that you want to submit, in Lightroom, Print them. The system's ...

One possibility is to set up the iMac as a server and then just log into your account on that machine via the MacBook. That would keep all files on the iMac, so no syncing necessary. Might not be as speedy as having local copies of the files, but it's conceptually simple and eliminates the possibility of synchronization problems.

I rarely use the dropper anymore, because it doesn't usually give me the results I want (accurate reproduction of all colors in the photo, even when shot under less than ideal lighting). The same goes for Auto white balance as the default WB when opening a raw file. If you're not shooting raw files, then you've got to get the WB very close when shooting or ...

If you have 200 images, you don't need 200 different white balance setting unless the temperature of the lighting also changed 200 times. Since you shot RAW (you did right?) the WB setting you initially chose matters very little (although as proven on this site, it matters a bit). Just select the images that were shot in the same lighting, perhaps 40 images, ...
