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 ...

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 ...

The way around the limit is to export the image and apply correction to it again. You can do this any number of times to reach 200 or 1000 or more cummalatively. If you use a lossless format such TIFF or DNG (Not sure how Lightroom stores PSDs, most likely that too is lossless) then there should not be any artifacts due to multiple cycles of processing. ...

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 ...

Where are the synonyms being stored in the exported images? In general on export Lr is gonna write all the keywords and synonyms into a flat list. IPTC provides for keywords, and that's it. Keyword hierarchies are actually stored elsewhere in the XMP metadata, and not all applications can even read them. I'd wanna look at the XMP in the exported file, but ...

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 ...

I'm on A Mac. Some of the deleted images will show in my trash folder, but many will not. If they are showing in the trash folder, I drag them to the proper folder and re-import. Just another example why Aperture is a better program in many ways. I switched to Lightroom in anticipation of Apple no longer supporting Aperture. In Aperture, I have recovered ...

It sounds like you need to explore using the various flagging, keywording, and filtering options more. Based on comments, I would suggest you find a way to identify "favorite" -- whether marked with five stars, a pick, a color, a "favorite" keyword, etc. Then, also tag your photos with the "fun" and "work" keyword. Now, you can simply filter by both ...

I use Silver Effex. It may not have as many color sliders as LR, but the final effect looks usually less synthetic than my B&W attempts in LR or PS. I think it is a free download now.

The instructions look to some part quite specific for the publication. Do they just want the complete set of pictures in a PDF, or is there more layout involved? Also, the instructions are not complete, as they should at least specify the color profile to be used, or they should refer to color settings. At the very, very least, they should say whether to ...

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 ...

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

Nik Gaffney is correct re: how to handle integrating ExifTool edits. I do this all the time (for different reasons). But... You can do your adjustment from in Lightroom. The "Adjust to a specified date and time" option to "Edit Capture Time..." doesn't work with multi-item selections the way the interface implies it does. It looks like it changes ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I use both an iMac and Macbook for my workflow as well. I've found the best solution is to have smart previews on both workstations and to transfer the catalog between both on a thumb drive. I currently have over 50K images in my library and they only take up around 12 GB as smart previews so I can still edit on the fly on my Macbook and not have to use a ...

Use Cubby. Cubby has a product very similar to Dropbox, but the local sync does not need the Internet to work. I have kept three macs synced for years using this method. I keep the Lightroom catalogs and smart previews on the SSD, and the images on an external hard drive. (Cubby.com)

I should preface my response with: my workflow involves two computers, two editors, plus an external editing company. What works for me though, may not work for you and certainly won't work for everybody. I import every image from an event/job to a master catalog on my iMac, where it's synced to a series of rotating backup disks. Once the images have all ...

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, ...
