As rafal suggested, using luminance and color noise reduction will help, but there are potentially two other things going on. 1) If you are exporting to JPG, you can expect to see some increase in pixelation, particularly if you set the output quality lower (more compression). Be sure that you set the quality to 100%. 2) I think there is an option upon ...

ISO 400 can contribute significant amount of noise (as answered by null). I am assuming you are a beginner and answering it in a very basic way. While shooting use low shutter speed (you may need tripod for this) and large aperture (least f-point available while shooting) to avoid high ISO value. While post processing in lightroom, try increasing ...

my camera don't go over 400, but still I find lots of those pixelated noises It looks like this statement assumes that 400 is a low ISO value in some absolute sense and thus there should be no noise. This is not true at all. Noise is mostly relative to the ISO range provided by the camera. The closer you are to the maximum value, the more noise you get. ...

Try the free-to-try Lightroom Enfuse plugin. Place exposure alternatives in stacks, and the plugin can batch process them all in one go. Most of the time with perfect results. I usually also lower contrast a bit, and set blackpoint to -20.

I think the answer is no. You can change the starting number when you export, but it still assumes you're exporting a contiguous sequence of images. In your case, I get the feeling you might export the 5th, 7th and 10th to 15th images, in which case, even if you pick 5 as the starting number you'll get 5, 6, 7, .... I don't think 'position in a collection'...

Adobe Lightroom is a streamlined photo processing and organizing software. Adobe Spark is a tool for visual storytelling on the web. Here's a comparison of the respective pro's and con's: Adobe Lightroom Pro: It's a good program for photo processing and organizing Con: It's not a tool for visual storytelling on the web Adobe Spark Pro: It's a good ...

Find the largest window in the house, remove any distracting elements out of the background, and shoot with the light to the side of the subject. Shoot using whatever settings you are comfortable with. If the home does not have large windows or is full of distracting items; go outside. The images will likely be better anyways and a nice overcast day will ...

You can get old 'manual' external flashes for very little (or even free from op shops and similar )and use a flash activated trigger to trigger them. Setting needs to be done manually but it's not hard [tm] to get light levels OK when you are in a staticish setting. Your camera also may allow cable trigger. Be sure that external flash voltage does not exceed ...

I recently upgraded to a used Nikon D80 with DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens and I am still learning how to use it. I have really only used it on Auto Mode. Unfortunately, I cannot purchase any more equipment right now or any time soon. I am supposed to do an indoor maternity shoot in 2 days for a family member and I am really nervous. Oh. Dear. Here's ...

Try learning as much as you can about light. Best would be a book about shooting people and nudes in natural light, you can try the Luminous Portrait by Elisabeth Messina - besides discussions about light it also has examples of settings. See if you can organize the room a little bit. The lady should be the most important thing in the pictures. See if you ...

When you turn down the highlights and turn up the shadows, a glow effect appears at the boundary of these two areas. What causes this? I don't mean to be flippant, but turning down the highlights and turning up the shadows causes it. I think what you really want to know is why doing that causes a "glow." I haven't looked into it beyond messing around with ...

One possible solution is to export the images to be tagged as a new catalog, send the catalog and images to your VA (or share via some cloud option), have the VA tag them, and then re-import them into your main catalog. It has limitations, but technically it should work. You would need to remove the images from your catalog before re-importing them to ...

You say you don't save the metadata to files from within Lr. Nevertheless, it should still be in the database. But HOW did you move the files to the NAS? If you didn't use Lr to do that, Lr would "lose" the connection to those files and not be able to find them, displaying a "!" in the grid view. You'd then relocate them by using that command in Lr, and it ...

I probably don't have the precise answer to your specific case as I do not work with Lightroom myself. However, I work with Darktable which has a similar workflow. The actual edits you've done to the photos should be contained in the sidecar files. However Lightroom keeps track of the original raw files in its database. When you move the raw files later, ...

What is the correct setting for this field? Does it need to be adjusted from one camera to another? There is no correct or incorrect setting. Adobe created several profiles for each camera with focus on different qualities. Select profile that gives the most acceptable colors for you. On my Nikon D750, the color profile is set to 'sRGB'. Should I ...
