Turns out the preferences file was corrupted. Renaming preferences in AppData (on windows) allowed the templates to work correctly again.

Since both the camera and your computer are displaying the same file, the problem likely isn't in the way your applications, EOS Utility 2 and Lightroom 3, are handling the files. The issue is most likely in the way the camera's display system and the computer's display system are handling the files. You can't do much about the camera's display system, ...

The easiest way I can see around this would be a smart collection with your filters then copy it's contents to a new collection and sync the new collection although I realize that this is extra work you would probably like to avoid I don't belive there is any way around it it the current time.

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 ...

Essentially this is a color management issue. Lightroom uses the ProPhoto RGB color space in the Develop module that you are in. 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 ...

Working colorspace in Lightroom is set by default to something better like AdobeRGB or even ProPhoto. But when you export to JPG files are automatically converted to sRGB. This is lossy colorspace and some nuances may be lost. Try to play with your export settings.

Lightroom does not touch the original file. Like every other edit in Lightroom, it keeps edit 'recipes' in the Lightroom database. Any rotation changes you make within Lightroom will be recorded in the Lightroom database, but they will not be made to the original image, so you can easily reset the image in Lightroom to the state it was in import. When you ...

If LR rotation command overwrites metadata field you cannot revert to original orientation (in other application this usually happens, generally this simplifies things). To test settings you should use one of metadata viewers and compare results before-after.

You can also use an median blending (create image stack and apply the "Median" stack mode) File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack Select all layers and use Edit > Auto Align to align them (if necessary) Layer > Smart Objects > Convert to Smart Object Layer > Smart Objects > Stack Mode and choose Median Discussion of this and other methods here: Does ...

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%

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:

The light is very specific on those photos, like the one Matt is pointing, you can try a combination of a rim light + butterfly light. But they also have some manipulation on post. Some styles you can explore The two styles you can explore that comes to my mind are: Dragan style Tone Mapping (hdri) Both are based on adjusting contrast, but the Tone ...

You can easily recreate this effect using Topaz Clarity. Check out the bearded guy on this link. In general, you do local and microcontrast enhancement.

The only way I can get that effect is by having the Module Picker strip (the strip at the top that lets you pick Library - Develop - Map, etc.) set to disappear automatically, as the Lightroom Mobile selector is within that. It should work properly if your cursor stays within that area, but if it moves out, the entire module picker strip will disappear to ...

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

There are many very good answers about HOW to use Lightroom to do what your question asks. I thought I would provide an answer as to WHY you would want to use Lightroom to do this: Lightroom can automate creation of folders, and provide more power and flexibility in managing those images than can be achieved with folder names alone. Lightroom is defined by ...
