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 ...

That Adobe seems to butcher the colors of all my raws drives me nuts You are wrong here. What you see on the back of your camera is not the raw file, but the JPEG preview, which includes whatever setting you dial in your camera. That includes contrast and boost of saturation. LR cannot reproduce the same look from the raw file, because the process is ...

One thing I don't fully understand is why, when I take a photo with a Nikon and import it in Lightroom, the colors immediately appear desaturated and visibly different than what it looked like in the camera. This is just a different interpretation of the raw data. Lightroom can't read the preset information from Nikon files, it seems and applies some ...

There is nice third-party add-on from Google called Nik. It was paid but they released it free. It cooperates nicely with Photoshop and Lightroom. Black and White: https://www.google.com/nikcollection/products/silver-efex-pro/ Color: https://www.google.com/nikcollection/products/color-efex-pro/ There are several film presets as well as possibility to do ...

We already have quite a few answers on this topic, so you should do some reading at least here: Is there a general formula for image size vs. print size? What is a suitable image resolution for canvas prints? The short of it is that you should not resize anything on your side. Let the printer do that for you. Send them the largest image you have before ...

Once you have the circles in your shots, the damage is done. The stronger light in the ring-form has overwritten some information that you would like to see there, and just because human brains suggest that it is still there below the rings, it isn't. It is overwritten and gone. What you can do, with appropriately qualified software, is manually 'heal', ...

Get a ColorChecker Passport and use it to create accurate profiles for Lightroom for the specific camera+lens combo and the current lightning conditions. While this doesn't guarantee that the images will look like the JPEGs generated by the camera, it does makes them look more accurate, perhaps even more pleasing than the JPEGs.

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 ...
