  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

I want to use my Mackbook laptop to edit photos in Lightroom CC on my iMac desktop (both have version: OS X El Capitan 10.11).
I am using "Back To My Mac" feature along with "Screen Sharing" to do that. Works well but strangely I am unable to perform some Lightroom functions this way. For example: I want the computer to select the ideal Whites and Blacks under "Treatment". To do so I would press "Shift" key and double click "Whites". I am unable to do that function remotely using Screen Sharing. Loosing such functionality makes the whole screen sharing process useless. Any suggestions?

As a suggestion, sometimes the host OS intercepts commands and does not deliver them to the remote machine. Is a shift-double-click such a command?

Yeah, I can't imagine that would work too well, and wouldn't be color-accurate either. There are other options for editing on your MacBook though... what are you trying to achieve?
