    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

    LR 4.3 final release & Canon sx50 raw

    I was thinking about buying the Canon sx50. Has anyone tried LR 4.3 and the crw files? I am using PS5 so I am not sure if 4.3 will import the files and if I can export them as TIFF and PS5 will open them? TIA

    Edit in CS5 not working in 4.3

    I downloaded and installed it. So far so good - I didn't explore all of the program - except for choosing the external editor. The program quite rightly chooses Photoshop CS5 as the editor but refuses to open in CS5 stating that an external editor isn't selected. I checked preferences and it is...

    Tutorial videos.

    Is it ok to post a video from another source? If not then I am sure Victoria will delete if inappropriate. If the link has been posted before then I apologise for not finding it. Very informative. I finally understand all of the controls. Before I had...

    Import defaults

    I have an import preset that is applied to all images on import. I like using the clipping warnings by pressing j on the keyboard. Is it possible to add this to the preset? Can't seem to see anything on the preset settings to add it. TIA.

    Gradient tool

    When I use the gradient tool it starts out at a slope and straightening it up is tricky. I know you can click on the center line and a little symbol can be moved to align the tool but even this isn't ideal. Are there any other "tricks" that can be used? It is certainly cumbersome compared with...

    Whether to use Auto Tone at Import (was from How do I prevent Lightroom from Auto...)

    As a side note, I was surprised to read in Martin Evening's book on LR 4 that he advises users to turn on auto adjust in import preferences. An experienced user of LR I think should encourage the use of adjustments manually without resorting to a wild guess from the Adobe engineers? Mod note...

    Lr4 & acr 7.0

    I am getting a bit confused by the issue of sending images from LR4 to Photoshop. I seems that "all will be well" when ACR 7.0 is released. The question I have is will ACR 7.0 be exclusively part of PS 6CS? Will it also be a stand alone update that can be loaded into PS5? If not then are Adobe...

    Starting to get confused

    I have a catalogue of about 5000 images created in LR3. I opened it in LR3 and without upgrading the catalogue I imported about 40 images created in LR4. I am now left wondering about mixing these images and what effect it will have? The LR4 images open OK in LR3.

    Would I be correct in stating that there hasn't been any improvements in the cataloguing with respect to LR3 & LR4 ,only on the processing?

    Default preset

    I have created a default preset with everything zeroed. When I open an image the default is honoured but when I move to the next image the camera calibration changes from standard to Vivid v4. I have tried update with current settings, set default settings and even trashed preferences. With the...

    In lightroom you can press CTRL +E to transfer to Photoshop. I take it there isn't a shortcut to transfer as a smart object? The full Photoshop has the ability to create shortcuts but not lightroom.

    Dual monitors

    I am using two monitors, one with the tools etc on it and one with a full screen view. The one with the full screen view is the better one and calibrated. the inferior one isn't calibrated but if I did calibrate it the brightness would still be different. On the inferior one the flashing...

    Keyboard functions.

    When i use the up & down arrows in ACR to adjust the tint slider the arrows move in increments of +1 & -1, however trying the same in LR3 it jumps by increments of 3 or 4. Any ideas why the two programs are different? Obviously my keyboard is functioning correctly. TIA
