  • 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.
  • It's Lightroom update time again! New cameras (including the Canon R5/R6), lens profiles and bug fixes, and the ability to disable built-in lens corrections for specific new cameras. Here's the usual list

No, Lightroom doesn't have content aware - or at least, it doesn't fill in gaps around the edges of the merged photo, if that's what you're thinking.

No, Lightroom does not have content-aware fill. I think that everyone would like to see that, but it's not that easy. The biggest problem is that any changes to the image will affect content-aware filled areas, so it would require a lot of recalculations that will slow down Lightroom. Photoshop does not have content-aware fill for smart objects either, possibly for the same reason.

No, not as such. Content aware fill is not part of ACR (which is at the heart of Lightroom), and so doesn't appear in Lightroom. It does have a Spot Removal brush which you can use to paint over small areas, but it works rather differently and is not as flexible or effective for large areas (in my opinion!).

I think content aware fill is one of the things that should be left on the other side of the Ps/Lr divide. I see no reason to make Lr into Ps. Adding that feature would essentially require Lr to become a graphics art program, since it requires that there be a blank canvas upon which your image is laid. And then on to layers, etc.

And conceptually you are painting, not retouching, not editing. I see that as fundamentally different. Yeah, at times adding a cm3 of blue would be nice, but they've gotta draw the line (or fill in the gap) somewhere.
