    Exclude objects from a preset?

    Hello, I have a landscape preset that I really like (LR 6.14). The problem is if people are in the landscape shot, it really screws with their skin tones. What's the best way to apply a preset and exclude an object like a person? //Brew

    HDTV as Monitor?

    Hello, I am using a 42" Samsung HDTV connected to my Windows 10 computer as my primary monitor. For using Windows, Office Apps, and Surfing the web it is fantastic. Within LR, it seems a bit strange. When I process picture, they seem a bit "blurry" and "dull". I thought my picture taking...

    Hello, I'm curious what users of the D7200 do in terms of the Camera Calibration settings in LR. Do you use Camera or Adobe standard? I'm trying to find a good combination of settings to improve the overall "vibrance and clarity" of my photos on initial import. Of course some fine tuning is...

    Why Sharpen on export?

    Hello, I typically sharpen my RAW files somewhere between 25-70 as on import. If I'm going to export those RAW's to JPG to post on Shutterfly/Flickr, should I really also sharpen for screen on export? Seems like a "double sharpen"? Can someone school me on pros/cons please? //Brew
