  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks 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.

Using fotos for ebooks - problems

Hey, Iam a beginner, so I need some tipps.

I write an ebook about fitness and did some fotos with a friend who has good camera. We used a softbox light and a reflector I bought. The fotos look good on pc

However, when I convert them into ebook format and look at them on my kindle, the pictures are pixelated and not that clear. I assume, the converter has problems because of the light and shadow changes on my pictures due to the softbox. Is there a way to edit the photos so they are in higher quality in the ebook format?

Hi fuersherdog, welcome to the forum!

You can increase the contrast to make them look better on Kindle, but if you go too far, they'll look bad in the Kindle desktop/tablet/phone apps.

It's also possible that the photos were too low resolution (too small) when they were added to the eBook. How were you creating the eBook file?
