    Am I editing the right way?

    This is a matter of taste. I think you are going in the right direction but imo they are cropped a little too tight. If you feel you have to crop tightly it is in order to crop out distractions in the background. If there aren't any distraction then a looser crop would imo be better?

    PS Luminosity Masks and Lightroom?

    This book is titled the Digital zone system but in reality it is about Luminousity masks. It MIGHT answer your queries? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Digital-Zone-System-Control-Capture/dp/1937538133/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1390298559&sr=1-1&keywords=the+digital+zone+system

    Surface Pro and LR5

    That is a recurring problem that is usually solved by unplugging and plugging in again or a reboot.

    How to use created camera profiles with lightroom

    BTW I am not trying to be argumentative only trying to understand this issue with the POSSIBLE view to buying one. Quote Linwood In my case, I also prefer that the two cameras produce images that look similar; I shoot with two bodies in many sports, for somewhat consecutive shots (e.g. far...

    How to use created camera profiles with lightroom

    Quote Linwood My apologies, Bob, I don't quite understand your question. Unquote. You posted two versions of the same image with different profiles attached. What I am asking is was it only two different profiles attached or was there further processing done to the images? Quote The overall...

    How to use created camera profiles with lightroom

    Have the images been enhanced or have they just had the profile applied? The problem I see is what is the point of applying an "accurate" profile and then enhancing it by possibly changing hue, contrast and saturation? The checker costs money and the free adobe profile is a good starting point...

    Syncing in LR5

    I have been learning how to sync the spot removal. Part of the syncing is to bring up a preset. Is it possible to save the preset so that when I open an other image with the dust spots then it is automatically applied? TIA

    Lr5.3rc1 Spot(clone-heal)repaired

    There is something I don't understand about this feature possibly because I haven't used it yet! My concern is that it "maps" out the different spots on a sensor and you can then apply them to other images? So far so good but when you clone/heal a spot LR chooses another area in the image that...

    Auto Tone question

    You can lower the "boost" that adobe has added which means you are starting from a more neutral setting. I forget what the "boost" is but a Google search will find information about the difference. A lot of photographers don't like the "flat" look a Raw looks like compared with the Jpeg so in...

    Auto Tone question

    If you haven't lowered LR'S default setting for the sliders then you are starting off with a raising of the tone curve and auto tone is adding to it. In reality you are auto toning it twice. Try setting the sliders to there lowest - you can't zero them in process 2012 but in process 2010 - and...

    AdobeRGB <-> sRGB

    I have LR & PS set up for Prophoto and when I am finished editing an image I press f7 on my keyboard - part of an action - and the file is converted - note not assigned - to Adobe RGB. If you open a jpeg in PS there will be a mismatch pop up warning you the colour space is Prophoto. Also some...

    AdobeRGB <-> sRGB

    Setting the camera to Adobe RGB will mean a better histogram.

    What happens to the Raw file once an image has been edited in Photoshop?

    In reality you are NEVER working on a raw. You are working on a rendered version of the raw so there really isn't a "problem".

    What happens to the Raw file once an image has been edited in Photoshop?

    Imo you wrongly assume that. Your eyes should tell you that. It is possible to have LR & PS open and make a comparison. You can even open it in PS and return it to LR without changes and make a side by side comparison in LR. Your eyes makes the decision as to how they compare.

    Adobe site hacked and credit card/personal info compromised

    I contacted Mastercard yesterday at about 15.00hrs concerning the problem. They seemed to have had no knowledge about it and advised me not to change the password because it could be bogus. I assured them I had checked various sources but they weren't convinced and suggested I ring Adobe with my...

    Are exposure changes done as raw adjustments like Photoshop Camera Raw?

    The interfaces are different which means that some users prefer one as opposed to another. LR has slightly more controls which I prefer. As stated above they are essentially the same program.

    What happens to the Raw file once an image has been edited in Photoshop?

    Quote gazgaz And that means that any exposure/tone changes I make after that in LR won't work as well because I'm no longer working with a raw image at that point? Unquote. Do I see a deeper question here? Are you asking about at which point you stop processing an image before it is in...

    Contrast Slider in LR4

    When LR4 first became available Adobe representatives were stressing the importance of the top down approach being "best" but not set in stone. Recently on other forums I have seen that the same representatives are suggesting a more flexible approach. This means there isn't a right or wrong way...
