Lightroom can't do any background deletion (so that this area gets transparent). If pure white is sufficient, you have the following ways to achieve this: Push up the whites on the whole image Use an adjustment-brush and push up the higlights / exposure until it gets white enough Use the spot removal tool and copy some white from another area Each of ...

Its not just in version 5.4, in every version of Lightroom that I've tried (starting with LR 4) tethered shooting is much slower than using the free Canon DPP software. I guess that LR does a lot of processing to make previews, etc. I gave up, and just use DPP for tethered shooting, then import the raw images into LR.

Certainly shooting RAW + JPEG does take more time to transfer since it is more data, but it shouldn't be that much more. Most likely your combined file size is only around 20 to 30MB and should take almost no time over USB 2.0. Interestingly however, the estimated transfer time for USB 1.1 would be around 22 seconds. I would probably try doing some ...

User order is quite ephemeral and I recommend you to avoid using it. One day something happens (disk fails, lightroom update, copy folder, etc.) and you loose your precious custom sorting. Instead, after you sort the photos as you do today you should: Select the photos you just finished ordering; Batch rename the photos (by pressing F2 or going to Edit > ...

I use Reject for quick selection of blurred/underexposed/etc. pictures - and delete those. I use stars just to select good pictures. Usually I use only 4 stars for good pictures, then I just filter by 4 stars, and review those (compared to others) and give 5 stars for the really good ones, and sometimes change the 4 stars to 3 if it is not as good as some ...

You could try selecting all the images and "Export to Catalogue", thereby creating a brand new LR catalogue. I don't think (?) you lose your image mods if you do this. Then you can remove the old catalogue that was causing issues. If it works, great. If not, you haven't lost anything.

Personally, I use pick for images I plan to do further touch up on. They may be any rating. Flags are separate from rating and artificially limiting them serves no purpose. Those who want to use them in concert can with minimal extra effort this way, but if it followed your suggested approach, then it would be impossible for many people to operate the way ...

You've combined the pick/reject model with the star rating model -- which is fine -- however that's not necessarily representative of everyone's use. Personally, in my initial sort I almost never use pick but always use reject. Anything I don't want to keep is rejected (and deleted) so the remaining ones are, arguably, all picks. Marking all photos as pick ...

Separated Flag and Rating tools have some benefits: Rating value can be written into image metadata while Flag is stored in your database (catalog) only. You can Pick the photos with 3 or 4 stars, but you might still need to distinquish images that you picked. One of the Daminion's customers marks images that were rejected by his clients but these images ...

Folders define the physical location of the file, whereas collections are simply an organization structure when viewing within LR. This is helpful when you want to have a folder of files on your local machine with a different folder of files on a remote drive. This trend is growing as photographers utilize network drives (or NAS systems). If you plan on ...

The idea is that you don't want to be applying compression to the image that will result in reduced quality. Tiff is a lossless image format and so it will preserve the raster data perfectly fine. I'm unsure about ProPhoto RGB as I've never worked with it. The one thing that is worth noting is that you will need to make sure your adjustments to your RAW ...

You can use IrfanView (freeware) for batch cropping. First, get the position and dimensions for the part you want cropped. The easiest way to do this is just open the photo in IrfanView, and drag with the mouse to draw a box on your photo. The title bar will display the size and position of the selected area. Then go to file menu, and "Batch ...

Photo Supreme offers a cross platform multi user solution. It uses a either a PostgreSQL or SQL Server database.

Yes, Lightroom has a batch crop. You first of all apply a crop to the first image. Then in the library grid view, you right-click on the first image, and under the header "Develop Settings" you chose "copy settings". You then select the option "Crop" and deselect all the other options (unless you also want to copy those to the batch). You then click on ...

If all your images are of the same size and you want to crop it to the same dimensions, you can use ImageMagick to get the job done. Take a look at the Crop details so as not be surprised by its behaviour :-)

The image in the preview comes from an embedded JPEG inside the raw file which was generated by the camera, while the image you see when you open the raw file in Lightroom is generated by Lightroom based on the raw data itself. The raw image data is captured from the camera at a point before the contrast and color settings are applied by the camera, so any ...
