• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation.

You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    Soft-proofing Help

    You'd need a profile which takes account of the paper, as well as the printer model. I don't know how things work in Oz, but could you approach OfficeWorks and ask if they have a profile you can use?

    Print preview image colors are way off even though my prints match my images perfectly

    in my case, I am using a custom profile from the paper manufacturer, and everything except that print preview is fine

    Print preview image colors are way off even though my prints match my images perfectly

    Same on my (modest) Canon printer. I've stopped worrying about it!

    DxO Nik Collection - Can it be used?

    At least one of the Nik tools (Viveza? - away from my computer right now) does not have a File Open command. However, it can still be used standalone if you create the short cut on your desk top and drop the file onto it.

    Epson R1900 not printing 13x19 from Lightroom

    Different OS, Lightroom version, and printer (!), but a couple of years ago I had a problem that I could only print A4. Resetting Preferences resolved it. Always worth a try if all else fails.

    Crop tool options

    And if you are going to print and fill the sheet on "A" size paper you'll need to set a custom ratio of 1.414 to 1 (or however close you want to get to the square root of 2).

    Photo Editing Outsourcing?

    Hi Nancy, As Ken suggested, keep plugging away. As you know, there are so many different "tutorials" out there, and a wide range of quality. I suggest that you stick with one, such as Julieanne Kost and learn their approach - different authors often have mutually incompatible approaches, and...

    Lr generates endless files of the same image during export

    Lightroom does work differently from many other programs. It's really important to understand the underlying workflow that Lightroom is designed around, and follow it. Obviously, I don't know which "quirks" you are referring to, but although I've been using it for a few years, I've found it...

    e-books or real books?

    This is just a thread asking about your opinions. Let's take Missing FAQ's as an example. I've only had Victoria's e-books. The advantages seem obvious: always there, easily transportable, searchable, easily updatable, and so on (and a bit cheaper). However, I certainly find it easier to...

    Performance Lightroom 6.14 vs. Classic CC 8.x on 2 cores?

    My understanding is that you have to take out a year's subscription, but can opt to pay in one chunk, or twelve. What happens if you opt for monthly payments and then just stop the payments I don't know. Dave

    Develop module New Feature in Version 8.2

    Didn't the Windows October update get pulled part way through its rollout? I seem to have a dim memory somewhere.

    Replacing entire system, need advice

    I'm pleased I have RAID1 internal disks. No, they are not a backup - they protect against a different kind of failure. A couple of years ago, my system informed me on boot up that one of my internal disks was not working. However, RAID meant I could carry on working exactly as before: no...

    Can't get the light right

    My question is a bit different: What is the picture about? When I look at your first image, my eye wanders all over the place. There is nothing to keep my attention. I think a big reason the second looks better is because the eye is drawn to the lake. So my suggestion is to decide how you want...

    Dull photos...

    It doesn't look all that dull to me. I think a bit of Clarity would bring out some of the detail in the stone work. However, it would be a big help if we could also see what Develop settings you are using. Could you take a screenshot(s) of the panel and post it here. Dave

    Recent Accidental Performance Boost, LR Classic

    Well, you're not alone, though I wouldn't want to put myself up as good practice. I'm a low volume amateur, and I use my pc for stuff other than photo editing. A few months ago my Dell monitor began to falter, so I decided to change it. After a lot of thought, I decided that I did not need a 4K...

    TV Display of Photographs

    This is bit off the wall, but here's the way I do it. I export from Lightroom and copy the files to my Android tablet. I have an Amazon fire stick (I don't have a smart tv!) That allows me to reproduce whatever is showing on my tablet on the tv. Dave

    HSL Panel problem

    I have just moved Lightroom to a new computer. I have just discovered that though I can manually drag the various sliders in the HSL panel, the Targeted Adjustment Tool does not function, whether I use a tablet or a mouse. Any ideas? Thanks, Dave
