It looks from your example images as though it could be a colour management issue. Lightroom uses different colour spaces for the Library and Develop modules, as explained here. (Key excerpt below) Lightroom primarily uses the Adobe RGB color space to display colors. The Adobe RGB gamut includes most of the colors that digital cameras can capture as well ...

The mystery is simply that the low-resolution versions of photos on Flickr are downscaled and recompressed with whatever arbitrary settings Flickr chooses. If you download the original version, it's byte-for-byte identical to the one you provide via Google Drive — if that looks different, it's a problem with your viewing software. How can you avoid this? ...

As far as I know, the only values that can be brushed are the ones shown in the brush. I would guess that Adobe feels the others are out of the scope of lightroom, which is "only" a image editing tool, not an image creating tool like photoshop. So maybe you'd need photoshop and use the RAW file from there.

Although quite laborious, one way to get to where you want to go would be to edit the raw file globally in Lightroom and export a separate version of the entire photo edited specifically for each of the areas you wish to develop differently. Then combine them using masking and layering in photoshop.

Black clipping has by no means to be a defect. For example an image that just shows the silhouette of a motive uses black clipping as a graphical effect. However, usually one tries to avoid black clipping because of the fear of losing details in the shadows. This quickly becomes a habit one stops to think about although deep blacks can also be beneficial ...

The questions are: Are you losing detail in the black region that affects the quality of your photo? E.g. if you have some dark texture there, clipping at black would kind of make the photo more sterile, although it is much harder to notice that in black areas. Also, black areas usually suffer from noise, and a heavy clipping at black will remove that. ...

Yes, but depends on file type. If you change the metadata of an image (in the image or its sidecar) externally from Lr then presumably you are storing the new metadata in that file or sidecar. But Lr doesn't know about that new data. Lr stores metadata in its own database. Lr should notice the data has changed externally, and show a little icon in the grid ...

The look you are desiring is as much about the light being shot and the exposure levels chosen as it is about the film itself. Instax seems to be fairly low contrast, less saturated, and slightly cooler in temperature than what most digital cameras output by default. But if you look for photos tagged with "Instax" on flickr, you quickly see the wide variety ...

You can get a result like this by creating a duplicate layer on Photoshop, and giving it a Gaussian Blur, then lowering the opacity of that layer. This gives the image a radiant glowing effect. Also, Joshua Cripps does a good tutorial on this effect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGNctntIOx8 Hope this is the effect you're looking for

Yes, Lightroom has a similar feature to Aperture's that could let you do what you want--assuming you actually have the bandwidth and patience to transfer half a gig of files to your cloud drive. The feature is called Smart Previews. It was a feature designed both for using Lightroom on tablets, as well as for being able to work on images on an external ...

I'm going to agree with mattdm here. Facebook in particular is notorious for its brutal image compression. If you want it to look nicer on Facebook, or Flickr, you need to have lightroom scale down the image to whatever setting Facebook is trying to get it to. My suggestion is to use one of the export plugins, and then play with the settings to find one that ...

I'm assuming from the rest of your question that you actually want to export from Lightroom to Flickr away from home, not the other way around. I did a lot of research on this particular problem when I set up my workflow. You really nailed the crux of the challenge with this statement: Ideally I'd like to create a physical copy of my photo on my ...

You can not export from smart previews, because there is nothing to export: you need the original files for Lightroom to create JPEG. Lightroom can't work with multiple instances of the same image. However, you can use a few Lightroom supported features to get some of what I think you want. First, if you want to temporarily take some of your Lightroom ...
