    Adding Import Presets

    Zenon: Your point is well-taken, but does not appear to address my concern about creating a Transform import preset.

    Adding Import Presets

    One problem: Although I included the Transform adjustment to my combined import preset, when I click on the Auto button in the Transform panel after the photo is imported, the correction occurs. In other words, it appears that the Transform adjustment was not applied during import. Hope that...

    Adding Import Presets

    I am using LR Classic v13.3. I previously created an import preset for Lens Correction/Chromatic Aberration. In addition, I would like to add an import preset for Sharpening & for Auto Transform. But it seems like I can only have one import preset active at a time. Am I missing something? Thank...

    Applying Presets to Masks

    I am using LR Classic v13.3. Can I apply the default presets in the Preset Panel to just the mask only? The presets seem to be global. Thank you so much.

    Develop module Corrections After Noise Reduction

    I was a bit remiss in not providing enough information. All of my photos are shot in RAW format with a Canon D6. Also, I should have mentioned that I tried DeNoise initially. And although AI did a commendable job in reducing noise, the edges of the people & object still had a "soft" appearance...

    Develop module Corrections After Noise Reduction

    As Lightroom has become more sophisticated, I find myself using external editors less often; hence my inquiry on seeking corrections within Lightroom. However, if this is not a viable option, I am amenable to looking at an external editor. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Thank you.

    Develop module Corrections After Noise Reduction

    I was shooting outdoors in dim artificial light at around ISO 12000 or higher (something I don't do that often) . The high ISO was also necessary since I was shooting handheld. After I manually reduce luminance noise reduction, the images had a "soft" appearance without defined edges, especially...

    Need Some Remove/Replace Help

    Rob: That is a bit out of my "knowledge zone"; bit I'm willing to give it a go. But I must have had a lapse in memory not to think of Generative Fill. Thank you.

    Need Some Remove/Replace Help

    Being an occasional Photoshop user, I could use some general help. I have a photo of my daughter whose sunglasses are reflecting the sky & nearby foliage. I would like to remove the reflection & replace it with a partially translucent color that looks more like sunglasses' lens. I don't expect...

    Folder Organizing Question

    Sage advise. I'll try not to be complacent. Thanks.

    Folder Organizing Question

    Thank you, David & John, for the responses. By Ctrl-clicking on the selected photos, I was able to create a new folder within the year 2023 & move the respective photos into it. That resolved my first issue. Regrading the second issue....in the Import Dialog box > Destination, the only thing...

    Folder Organizing Question

    Earlier this year I created a new folder for 2023. Like my other yearly folders, I assumed that newly-imported photos would automatically be listed within that folder by date of capture. However, I just noticed that my 2023 photos that I had imported into that folder were not listed by the date...

    Old B&W Photo Restoration Software

    Thank you, everyone. You confirmed my suspicions that PS has the best arsenal of tools for this project. Although I am comfortable with most of the PS basics, it will take a bit of learning in order to get up to speed. But, for me, I'm always up for a new learning experience. Thanks again.

    Old B&W Photo Restoration Software

    My daughter has a lot of old B&W family photos on her computer. I am interested in restoring these photos as best as possible. I have been a LR user for years, but feel that it has limitations in this area. Therefore, I am curious as to the experience that some of you might have had with...

    P/S Sky Replacement Adjustment

    As a preface to my question, I am a longtime Lightroom user that occasionally makes forays into Photoshop 2022 to use tools that Lightroom either does not have or Photoshop does better. With that, I used Sky Replacement in PS. As you can see in the image, some of the spokes on the ferris wheel...

    Topaz DeNoise 3.5 Plugin Issue

    Actually, I have stumbled upon a workaround which works fine. However, Topaz Labs sent me a link to assumingly fix the issue. I haven't had the time to try it yet.

    Can I Drag & Drop an Image from Folders?

    Califdan: I agree. The reason for my original post was based on my concern of subsequent problems associated with dragging/dropping from LrC. I have alway either used the Edit In function or Export to send an image outside of LrC.

    Can I Drag & Drop an Image from Folders?

    I opened LR Preferences > External Editing and both "Topaz DeNoise" & "Topaz DeNoise AI" were listed in the Preset dropdown menu. Here is what I discovered: If I select "Topaz DeNoise" from the menu, the Topaz DeNoise external app would now open as a plugin from LR. However, if I select "Topaz...

    Can I Drag & Drop an Image from Folders?

    Thank you, Y.K. Topaz DeNoise does indeed have a LrC plugin. However, when I use the Edit In command to send an image to DeNoise, the DeNoise app fails to open. And, oddly enough, a TIFF file is still created in LrC next to the original. So my original query was intended to create a workaround...

    Can I Drag & Drop an Image from Folders?

    I am trying to avoid any catalog-corruption issues. With that in mind, can I navigate to a specific folder, then drag & drop an image into another application (specifically, into Topaz DeNoise)? Thank you so much.

    Topaz DeNoise 3.5 Plugin Issue

    I might add that if the problem cited in my original post is not readily resolved, would it be appropriate to do the following as a workaround.: (1) Locate the image that I want to send to DeNoise in the LR folder & (2) drag & drop that image into the DeNoise window? This seems to work, bit I...
