I am pleased to announce the availability of my updated Lightroom CC/6 and 5: Producing Great Output video series! In this series of over 12 hours of training for Lightroom 5, 6, and CC users, you’ll learn to create beautiful prints, photo books, slideshows and web galleries using Lightroom. I’ll also help you to finally understand critical but seemingly intimidating concepts like color management (why your output doesn’t look like what you see on-screen and what you can do about it), resolution and size, JPEG quality, sharpening, etc. Downloads of this product are now available. DVDs can be pre-ordered, with an anticipated shipment by July 18. (DVD purchases also come with a free download so you can get started right away if you wish.) Get […more]
Update April 2, 2016: Now that April 1 has passed, I’ll say that this video was an April Fools’ joke. Watch it only if you are up for a laugh! In this short new video tutorial I show you how you can turn a boring photo such as the one below on the left into a stunning photo, on the right: Most people really like the pace of my tutorials, but a few people would like slower or faster pacing, so I have tried to adjust my style – let me know what you think!

Adobe has just announced a new Technology Preview section on Lightroom Web, where Creative Cloud subscribers can play with features that are still in development. The first feature introduced is Search, which allows you to search for objects and themes in your photos – for example, find all photos with dogs in them or all photos with red in them – without having added keywords. The feature has not been perfected at this point, but it is nonetheless already very impressive. My fingers are crossed, hoping that it makes its way into Lightroom Desktop in the not-too-distant future. As background, Lightroom Web allows you to access, edit and share your photos from anywhere using just a web browser. Either sync (upload) […more]

Adobe today released Lightroom 6.4 and CC 2015.4. In addition to the usual bug fixes, new camera and tethering support and lens profiles, are the following additions and improvements: Boundary Warp, for CC subscribers only Usually the Photomerge Panorama process produces a panorama that is not rectangular, and that therefore requires cropping (or Photoshop work). The new Boundary Warp feature within the Panorama dialog analyzes the boundary of your panorama and warps the image so that it is rectangular and doesn’t require cropping. While I used Boundary Warp with the Perspective option in the above example, if you are using Perspective to preserve straight lines, Boundary Warp won’t be useful since it will warp those lines.
