  • Lightroom Classic 8.0 and Lightroom CC 2.0 (desktop) and Lightroom CC 4.0 (mobile) have just gone live. My books are already updated for the changes.
  • 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 CC - 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 CC 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.

When I first used LR (first version) I thought one could display the focus points used during image capture.

How and where does one do this? Or can it be done?

The lack of standard data handling of Focus points by the various camera manufacturers has kept the Lightroom from implementing this feature. For those of us who only use one focus point, it isn't a big deal.

True enough.

In any event, I think I confused it with Canon's DPP.

Aperture had this feature. Is there any chance of Lightroom introducing this feature in the future ?
