  • 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.

:confused: Can someone help with an explanation how "Match Total Exposures" applies its adjustments.
and -Can it be used to prepare images for Photo-merge to Panorama in Photoshop?
My Nikon D200 in Full Manual mode recently gave me raw images with compensation applied (-0.3, +0.66. +1.33),maybe I had my finger on the BKT bracketing button!

Yes, Match Total Exposures is exactly what you're looking for. Adjust the Exposure slider for one of them to taste, then select the other two (with the first still the active photo) and then do Match Total Exposures. It will adjust the Exposure slider for the other two so that the total exposure (ISO, exposure time, aperture, and exposure slider) match the active photo.
