  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

I kind of wished I'd picked the Canon R whatever instead of the a73, but that isn't part of this post... Since I changed cameras, the file type changed and the files are more than twice the size. I just...

    Workflow LR tiff pictures converted to jpg including improvements

    I have scanned many thousand slides into tiff format, 45-50Mb each. The slides are from 1980 to 2007. What is a good workflow to convert them to jpg at 5Mb each, second I need an automatic improvement in color and sharpness? I can not analyze each photo individually. I realise that a fair...

    Jpeg vs TIFF for editing

    Hi, I'm wondering about editing files in Lightroom, specifically the difference(s) between jpeg and TIFF. To explain my question, a little background first. Here is what my workflow currently looks like: - Use View NX 2 to convert NEFs to TIFF and import TIFFs to LR (keeping all NEFs backed...

    RAW vs TIFF

    I am a long-time user and fan of LR, currently on v6.5. I recently switched from Nikon to a Sony A7 and am happy with the camera except for one thing - the dull RAW files from the A7 (dull color, low tonal contrast) out of camera when loaded into LR. It's all there in the RAW, but takes more...

    TIFF vs DNG

    I have seen a number of discussions as to the benefits of either TIFF or DNG but am still unclear as to which is most appropriate. I am going to be scanning a large number of slides using SilverFast scanning software to scan and manipulate. Then storing and editing in Lightroom and editing where...
