• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. 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.
  • 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.

I think it's one of those "blind man would like to see it" situations. It's visible if you pixel peep and you're looking for it, but when was the last time someone walked round your house with a magnifying glass examining the leaves in a beautiful landscape? On a billboard, it might notice a little more, but if people are looking that hard at the minutest of details, then the question is why the photo isn't good enough to hold their attention.
Hi Victoria,

Yes, I think you are spot on. I suppose one can get carried away with a level of detail with the danger that it transcends the actual reason for view an image. I've seen beautiful work which is out of focus. Technical aspirations should be second to artistic flair (unless we are talking about a technical piece of photography such as copywork etc!).

Thanks for your enlightening comments.

For those of us, who have not an artistic bone and have to rely on technical knowledge, I have to disagree!
