I just ran a new edit to Topaz after shutting down LR because it appeared to be updating or something (twitchy).
Now when I bring the Topaz edited photo back into LR at first no edits show, but when I advance to the next image while in Dev mode, the Topaz adjustments are showing up...
I use Topaz photoFXlab (PFL) and not Fusion Express (FE). FE is limited to one plug-in at a time whereas PFL allows access to all of the Topaz plugins and layer masking adjustments. FE does work (just checked), but limits my workflow too much, thus the reason for purchasing PFL.
The test failed when going from Dev to Topaz and back to LR. Again, the images show adjustments in the Gallery module, but not in the Dev module. This was not the case prior to the upgrade. Any suggestions?
1) RAW file goes into develop module,
2) I select "Auto" and make small adjustments,
3) I right click and select "Edit in photoFXlab.exe", selecting "Edit copy with Lightroom Adjustments"
4) Image opens in photoEXlab, I select the Topaz filter I want, edit and then choose "OK"
5) Image is...
LR CC 2015 Not Updating Edits in Develop Module
I updated from LR 2014 CC to LR 2015 CC yesterday; before the update, everything worked well.
Problem: After I send my TIFs over to Topaz or PS 2015 CC for editing, the images return back to LR without the edits showing up in the Develop...
I agree, the interface is not user friendly and it operates at clunky most times. But, what else is out there that comes close to its abilities? It would be absolutely wonderful if Adobe did purchase and support it for LR and PS.
Seriously, I read Martin Evening's book and Scott Kelby's. I sold Scott Kelby's via Amazon as it was too basic for my needs. Martin's book is excellent and I have read it from cover to cover (big book), but I will not part with it, as it is my LR Encyclopedia. I have been using LR since...
I click the "X" (close) on the image's top right corner; it will ask you if you want to save it, click yes and it will travel back into LR. Remember to flatten the layers before saving if you want to save space; not if you want to keep your layers active.
Congratulations to Victoria Bampton for a very well written article on the DNG file format in the March 2''9 issue of Photoshop User magazine. :D
Victoria's writing style is clear, concise and a bit entertaining. If you think you do not need the DNG format, you need to read her article. She...
Thank you Victoria! Things changed when I made the upgrade and I guess I did not notice. The UI is confusing since it does give TIFF and PSD formats as an option, but does not fulfill the option when set up through the interface. Oh well. :?
I use NIK Color Efex Pro 3.' Complete and Silver Efex Pro and they work as plug-ins with CS4/PS. They do not work as plug-ins with LR. You can send your photos from LR through PS and then apply the NIK filters, save and send back to LR.
I just finished filing a bug report about this in LR 2.3RC. It was working fine at first and now it is not. Only raws are being exported to PS now. I double checked my preferences and also reloaded a clean pref file -- no go. I re-installed 2.3RC -- no go. Hopefully Adobe will have a fix...
I read Kelby's Book and found it to be too watered down. I happily sold it on Amazon quickly. I use Martin Evening's book as my main resource and have read it entirely except for the web info since I do not use LR for that. I also use Victoria's book for quick reference. Although I am a member...
I print with the R24'' all the time with excellent results. Without knowing your operating system or paper type, I will give you what I routinely do for printing excellent prints. My example is working with LR 2.2, XP SP3, and Epson Velvet Fine Art paper:
