  • Simple, Yet Smart ‘Color Labels’ Idea From One of My Readers

    19 Dec 2014 | 4:20 pm
    After taking my survey yesterday, Andy Ramsay, posted a comment with the very simple, clever, and effective way he uses Color Labels in Lightroom. Here’s what he wrote: “I use traffic-light-style colour labels to identify ‘Needs Work in Photoshop’ [Red], ‘Been worked in Photoshop, Needs final LR adjustments’ [Amber], and ‘Ready for Release’ [Green]. …My portfolio smart collection is built to only use photos that are coloured Green and tagged ‘portfolio’.” This is the type of stuff we all tend to over-think.

  • Results from Yesterday’s Lightroom “Tagging” Survey

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    19 Dec 2014 | 8:51 am
    Thanks to 1,800+ of you who were kind enough to take the survey yesterday (much appreciated). I was surprised to see… …that nearly 40% of the respondents use Color Labels as part of their workflow, especially since Lightroom Mobile doesn’t yet support Color Labels (a feature that’s been in the desktop version of Lightroom since 1.0). It supports Pick Flags and Star Ratings, but not Color Labels. Maybe if the LR team at Adobe sees that enough people use Color Labels they’ll add it to a future Lightroom Mobile update. So, thanks again to all of you who participated.

At the end, I showed an example with an inset photo overlapping a full bleed photo and I offered to show how it’s done (because it’s not super obvious. Well, it wasn’t to me the first time I tried it anyway). A few folks asked me to show it, so here’s one way to get it done: STEP ONE: While you can do this from scratch using the “Custom Package” Layout Style (in the Layout Styles panel) and then use the Cells panel to create it, I think it’s quicker to…

    My buddy Terry White (from Adobe Systems) posted a survey yesterday on the use of different ways to tag your images in Lightroom (Pick Flags, Star Ratings and Color Labels), and I wanted to do the same thing here today with my audience (don’t go look at Terry’s — I don’t want it to taint your answers). So, if you wouldn’t mind, can you just take this quick one-question survey and let me know which of these three methods you use (you can choose all of them, or just one or two — choose as many as you use in your own workflow). I’ll post the results shortly.

Hopefully your busy season has wrapped up and you are ready to play.  I love the lull of winter for a few different reasons.  Since I’m in Michigan winter means cold and snow and long dark nights.  One great thing about winter is having more time to photograph for myself and my family.  A favorite over the past few winters has been capturing the holiday lights to bring back memories for years to come.  One thing most blog posts on the topic will say is use a tripod (or maybe a bean bag on a car ledge).

    In retouching you see this quite frequently, whether you’re using seamless paper, vinyl, a fabric hanging or a purpose built infinity cove, it’s going to get dirty. You have a couple of options, one is to check out some reviews on Amazon for handheld vacuum cleaners and have your assistant scoot around with it between shots. The other more sensible option, which we’ll cover here, is to solve it in post, in this case using Adobe Photoshop. It isn’t difficult of course to clone out the odd scuff mark, but when you have hundreds of dirt marks or creases you need a…

    When I shot the Village Halloween Parade this year with the new Canon 7D Mark II, I knew there would be an issue with Lightroom. Even though the Canon Raw CR2 format has been virtually unchanged over the past few camera releases, Adobe insists not to fudge it and process the files based on the old “interpretation”. Until now, the choice was to save photos in-camera as both  RAW & JPG or use Canon’s DPP to process the RAW files. But, no more … Adobe finally updated Lightroom 5.7 to support Canon 7D Mark II Raw files!  This new update also supports the new Canon…

  • Targeted Use Of Lightroom's Radial Filter Tool

    9 Dec 2014 | 4:51 am
    Angle of view is an important aspect of getting an interesting shot.  Today's image can be thought of as having been shot as a heroic portrait.  Heroic meaning taken from a low angle, raising the subject.  The term "heroic", in this case, has nothing to do with the exploits of the subject.  Just how the shot was composed.  The young lady was very helpful in achieving this pose by being on a set of four or five foot tall stilts.  She just happened to be a performer at a helium balloon filling party on the streets (or rather "a street") of Stamford…

    Photoshop is such a massive and versatile program that its amazing that a book would be needed aimed at a specific group of users. The truth is, the tools and filters in Photoshop are so vast and flexible that this is probably the only way to learn the software. What makes this book stand out against others in this genre is what it isn't. What this book isn't is a series of steps to achieve a certain outcome. There's a few in there, but what this book does is something I appreciate greatly, it tells the ready why you do something. The post Photoshop for Photographers – Book Review…

  • Photoshop 101: True Black (CMYK)

    Jay Hilgert
    20 Dec 2014 | 2:16 pm
    Advertise here with BSAI’ve got a quick Photoshop 101 tip for print media. This can also apply to Illustrator, but I just filed it under Photoshop. We should all know by now that RGB documents are meant for screens, and CMYK documents are meant for printing. Therefore, when you print a CMYK document and you need a really rich black it’s important to remember one little teeny tiny thing: 100% K isn’t the blackest black you can get. More after the jump. Believe it or not, when working in CMYK for print media, 0 0 0 100 is not the best black you can get. If you have a keen eye,…

    Clean out Your Duplicate Images PhotoSweeper works with Aperture, iPhoto, and Adobe Lightroom libraries and image folders to find duplicates and look-alikes based on time interval or by comparing histograms or pixels. You start the process by having the app create a catalog of your images—I used my collection of more than 6,500. (Note that you can save the catalog for later use.) After cataloging, decide which algorithm you want to use. Duplicates will find only exact duplicates on a byte-per-byte basis.

    Quality, Ultra-Telephoto, Full-Frame Lens Sigma continues to innovate with their 150–500mm f/5–6.3 APO DG OS HSM ultra-telephoto lens. While designed for full-frame sensors, it’s equally at home when used with smaller APS-C sensors. That’s a lot of flexibility for one lens. This is a lens that’s not only affordable, but ideal for subject matter as diverse as nature, wildlife, sports, and portraiture where compression trumps wider apertures. Welcome amenities such as optical stabilization (OS), typically reserved for costlier glass, help compensate for camera shake and make it…

They’re typically drawn to objects such as windows and parts of a webpage, but if you drag them, they’ll act like any selection tool with a pixel size and color-under-cursor loupe to guide you. When you release your mouse, the crosshairs change into a resizable, movable selection rectangle, under which are…

    Over the past month or so I've been meeting periodically with a teaching colleague of mine, Matt Edwards, to do some studio work.

There's a few in there, but what this book does is something I appreciate greatly, it tells the ready why you do something. The post Photoshop for Photographers – Book Review…
