Thanks to @Ryan's answer which I adapted 5 years ago, I automated most of my first desk job. It's now the open source package autocrop on PyPI, and can be used from your terminal, or through a Python API. If you have Python installed, install it via pip install autocrop and use it thusly from the command line: autocrop -i pics -o crop -r reject -w 400 -H ...

The short answer is that the "red", "green", and "blue" filters in your camera's Bayer mask are not the same colors as the Red, Green, and Blue colors used by emissive RGB displays. Neither are the "red", "green", and "blue" colors to which the three types of cones in our retinas are most sensitive. ...

I like to consider myself as an amateur photographer but I've been shooting for almost two years now. For a year and some change I've done work for free just to gain some experience. About 4 months ago I started to charge $75/hour for shoots and events; all my sessions are held on location except for events of course. Both an amateur and a pro produce ...

It's not exactly using the a*/b* CIELAB channels/values; even though that is what it looks like. When you set the temp towards the blue side of the slider you are telling the program that the light was warmer (lower kelvin) and it needs to add blue light to the scene... and light is additive color (RGB). However, anything in the scene that is showing a color ...

No, there is no catch. PS is the same software you will find in Photo subscription. The only difference is Photo subscription include as you can see LR Classic, LR, PS with 20GB of cloud space. And LR subscription is with 1TB cloud space (and by my understanding include only LR and not LR Classic). IMHO PS subscription follow the price formula of Adobe for ...

This is a more tricky question that you might think. First, the RGB value that you see with your eyes on the screen are the result of an operation on the processed output from Lightroom, that is defined by the calibration of you screen. So beware what RGB values you measure. Second, when you are adjusting color temperature, what you are really doing is ...

If you look at my related answer here: https://photo.stackexchange.com/a/122262/20809, the White Balance process of Adobe Photography products, i.e. Adobe Lightroom and Camera Raw, is outlined. As for automatic White Balance, and given an image, you can, for example, compute the average chromaticity coordinates in a centre area of the image and use that as ...

When you have actually inserted a card which has photos the import window pops up in Lightroom. On the left side of the window is a list of devices. Just above the (Camera or Card Reader) Device there is a check box for "Eject after Import". This only appears when you have a card with images inserted.

Perhaps i should have just said what type of lighting and background do i need to capture this ambient lighting. As well as the editing and other post photo stuff. – Joseph This image is obviously shot with a window in the frame and providing light. Using a sheer white cover over a window is a common method for utilizing window light, which is soft in ...

The basic answer is "it depends" on what settings are selected in LR/PS (Lightroom/Photoshop). Most of the time it is based on in-camera processes that set the color channel multipliers in the EXIF info but raw conversion applications, including LR and PS that both use ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) under the hood, can be set to use other things instead. ...

Step 1: Put your images in an album and order your images by capture date in Lightroom CC Step 2: Select all your images Step 3: Click on export (Custom, not the preset ones) Step 4: Choose a custom filename Your images will be exported in the right order as a sequence.

Keep your DNGs! I don't see any reason why you couldn't export all 30k photos to jpg using the export dialog built into Lightroom. Store them in a different folder than your DNGs for faster browsing, but still retain the raw files just in case you need to edit something in the future. If you like browsing in Lightroom, but it's running too slow, you could ...

If you do not know then you are not a pro. It's okay to be an amateur and it's okay to charge according to your needs, but the customer will decide if your work is on par with your rates. I will say that $75/hour sounds steep for an untrained entusiast who is not enthusiastic.
