Should I Buy Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 or Photoshop Lightroom Classic?
 
18:13
(FREE TUTORIAL) One of the questions that I get asked all of the time is which version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom should I buy? This a tough decision since there is both a stand-alone product which Adobe calls *Photoshop Lightroom 6* and a subscription product which Adobe now calls *Photoshop Lightroom Classic* on the market right now. You might think that since both products are currently available from Adobe Inc. and that since they both have such similar names that they are identical. Sadly, that’s not true. There are some big differences between the cost and the features that are included with each of these products. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 is a one-time purchase. If you buy Photoshop Lightroom 6 then you are granted what a "perpetual license" to use this software forever without any additional fees. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic, on the other hand, is not available as a one-time purchase. Photoshop Lightroom Classic is part of the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription software family. In plain English, this means that you must pay for the right to use this software every year. If you are an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber and you miss a payment then Adobe does not delete your software or destroy your images. They will not do anything to hurt you or your photography if you cancel your subscription. Nothing vindictive happens if you stop paying Adobe each month, or every year, but you won’t be allowed to use this software to its full potential again until you reactivate your account. The big thing though you need to know is that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic includes a number of tools that are not available to those who purchase Photoshop Lightroom 6 instead. Photoshop Lightroom 6 customers miss out on new tools like Dehaze, the Guided Upright Correction Tool, and more. In addition, as an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber you get the right to use Lightroom Classic plus Adobe Photoshop CC and a bunch of other Apps or online services for no additional fee. As you can see there is a lot more to the question "which version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom should I buy" then you might think. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Make A Meteor Shower Composite Using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom & Photoshop CC
 
14:23
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Make A Meteor Shower Composite Using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom & Photoshop CC There are two ways to photograph a meteor shower. You can go for a long-exposure and let the stars become circular arcs as they swirl by your camera. My preferred method though is to shoot a long time-lapse style sequence of pinpoint star images. If you shoot your night sky images at a fast enough shutter speed, and at a much higher ISO setting, then your camera will record the streaks of light that the meteors produce as they burn up in the Earth's atmosphere against a sea of crisp frozen stars. The problem with this method is that you are unlikely to capture more than a couple of bright meteors passing by in any single ten to thirty-second long exposure. What you get using this technique is an image with a meteor but not an image that shows the full glory of a meteor shower. To create an image that feels like a meteor shower, in front of a field of frozen stars, we need to build a composite image using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop CC. With just a little bit of work in both programs, we can put together an image that combines the best moments of the meteor shower into a single frame. By building a composite image using *Layers* and *Layer Masks* in Adobe Photoshop CC you can easily show more meteors than you would ever capture in any single shutter click! ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic's New Color Range Mask Feature
 
07:53
(PREVIEW) Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic's New Color Range Mask Feature The new *Color Range Masking* and *Luminance Masking* tools in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic are a great way to bring more precision to your local adjustments. Thanks to these new masking tools we can make much more precise changes to our images while working with Lightroom Classic's Adjustment Brush Tool, Radial Filter and Graduated Filter tools. The Color Range Mask selects areas based on the colors that you sample using a new Color Range Selector tool whereas the Luminance Range Mask selects pixels based on their brightness value. To use the Color Range Mask, you must first create some type of local change using either the Graduated Filter, the Radial Filter, or the Adjustment Brush tool. Once you have created a local change then you can select Color from the new Range Mask drop-down menu. Next, use the new eyedropper tool (Color Range Selector) to target the colors that you want this local change to affect. For greater accuracy, click and drag rectangles around the colors that you want to select and / or use the SHIFT key to add up to five sample points. Finally, adjust the Amount slider to expand or contract the edges of your new mask. Holding down the ALT key while you drag these sliders to see its effect on the selected areas. Dragging either of these sliders to the right softens the mask and includes more areas. Dragging these sliders to the left contracts your mask and gives it harder edges. It’s always tempting to drag the Amount / Smoothness sliders all the way down to zero but I warn you that doing so will often create unnatural artifacts and edges in your image. A little spill, a little softness, in our masks is generally a good thing. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Use The Brush Tool In Snapseed From Google
 
09:08
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Use The Brush Tool In Snapseed From Google The *Brush Tool* in Snapseed from Google is a useful option when you want to change one part of your photograph without altering the rest of the image. With the Brush Tool, you can literally paint over the regions that you would like to change in your photograph. Mastering Snapseed's Brush Tool is not hard but there are some secrets here. First, I urge you to use the Exposure Brush instead of the Dodge & Burn brush whenever possible. Not only does the Exposure Brush offer an additional level of control but it also easier to paint away your changes with this option if you push things too far. Second, there is a far more elegant way to make the same kind of changes that I demonstrate in this video tutorial inside of Snapseed from Google. This more elegant, and more flexible method, for painting in the changes that we want to make to our mobile images utilizes the incredible power of Snapseed's secret *Edit Stacks Masking Brush* feature and it is the subject of our next tutorial.

(PREVIEW) How To Process A Landscape Photo With Nik Color Efex Pro From Google The filters in the FREE *Nik Color Efex Pro* utility from Google can do all sorts of amazing things for landscape photography. Out of the fifty-five filters in Nik Color Efex Pro toolset, I find myself working with the Tonal Contrast, Pro Contrast, and the Brilliance / Warmth filters again and again on my landscape and travel photographs.

How To Use The Lens Blur Tool in Snapseed From Google
 
06:46
(PREVIEW) How To Use The Lens Blur Tool in Snapseed From Google Focus, and blur, are some of the most effective tools that we photographers can employ to lock our viewer’s attention onto one particular element within our frame. Thus, the *Lens Blur Filter* in Snapseed from Google is an essential tool for mobile photographers like you and me. With this tool, we can create realistic blur effects in our images and really drive our viewer’s eyes around our photo. Your viewer’s eyes are inherently more interested in the parts of your image that are sharp than in the areas that are blurry. Unfortunately, the camera lens inside of my smartphone is manufactured with a fixed aperture setting. Unlike the lenses that we use on our dslr cameras, there is no way for me to reduce the size of the depth of field that my cellphone camera captures while I am out shooting which is why the Lens Blur Filter is such a wonderful tool for our mobile image processing. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Use The Nik Sharpener Pro Plugin From Google With Photoshop CC
 
09:02
(PREVIEW) How To Use The Nik Sharpener Pro Plugin From Google With Adobe Photoshop CC I demonstrate how to use the *RAW Pre-sharpener* plugin that is included in the FREE Nik Collection from Google in this video tutorial excerpt. (https://www.google.com/nikcollection/) Although you can use the Nik Sharpener plugin as a stand-alone product, I prefer to use this tool on a Smart Object Layer within Adobe Photoshop CC. Using the Nik Sharpener plugin within Adobe Photoshop CC is the technique that I demonstrate in this video but no matter how you use it, Nik Sharpener Pro is a powerful utility with some really smart buttons. Nik's name for this amazing tool is a little misleading since this software does not actually work with digital camera raw files. By the time that we can use this powerful utility from the Google Nik Software Collection we are no longer working with the raw image data. Raw processing is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom job in my workflow but don't let the semantics put you off here. Working with Nik Sharpener, you can quickly and easily target additional contrast to the meaningful edges in your image. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

(PREVIEW) How To Remove Noise Using Nik Dfine From Google (Advanced) It is hard to beat the combination of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, plus Adobe Photoshop CC, and the amazing Free *Nik Dfine* utility from Google for powerful advanced noise reduction. Dfine is part of the Google Nik Software Collection. Unlike Adobe Photoshop Lightroom or Photoshop CC, Nik Dfine is a specialty product. Nik Dfine’s sole purpose is noise reduction and unlike Photoshop Lightroom, Dfine actually studies your images and automatically adjusts its settings so that more fine details are retained. I demonstrate how to move a noisy digital photo from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom over to Adobe Photoshop CC and then into Nik Dfine for precise noise reduction in this video tutorial excerpt. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Make A Black And White Photo Using Snapseed From Google
 
08:59
(PREVIEW) How To Make A Black And White Photo Using Snapseed From Google There are many ways to turn a color photo into a black and white image using Snapseed from Google. In this tutorial, I will show you two different ways that you can drop the color away and create an engaging black and white masterpiece. Each of the methods that I demonstrate in this video has its own unique advantages. Desaturating your image using the *Saturation* control in Snapseed’s Tune Image toolset is the fastest and easiest way to shift a color image into a black and white. Although this method works well on some images, this is not the most sophisticated route from color to black and white. The *Noir Filter* is an excellent option to try when desaturating is not enough to give your images the monochrome look that your heart desires. Noir is designed to create moody, cinematic black and white images with darkroom-inspired toning and wash effects. Finally, the *Black & White Filter* provides professional-grade precision. The Color Filters option, which is available only inside of Snapseed’s Black & White Filter, provides the utmost control over the color to black and white conversion process.

How To Upgrade To Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 For The Current Lightroom User
 
12:54
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Upgrade To Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 For The Current Lightroom User The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 upgrade process often frustrates current Lightroom users. Unfortunately, the official Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 installer package that you purchased at the store, or downloaded from Adobe online, provides minimal instruction. This lack of internal guidance often creates unnecessary confusion. First, many Adobe Photoshop Lightroom users do not understand that each version of the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom application is a unique stand-alone entity. Installing Photoshop Lightroom version 6 will not automatically erase, remove, or modify any older version of this software from your computer. Each version of Lightroom is installed as a completely separate program. Second, just installing the Lightroom 6 software package is not enough. Once you have installed the new Photoshop Lightroom 6 application then you will also need to upgrade your current Lightroom Catalog for use with the new Lightroom 6 format. Hopefully, this step-by-step tutorial will take some of the confusion out of the upgrade process for Lightroom users who do not want to move to a Creative Cloud subscription. For more help with the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 Upgrade process go to https://www.focusphotoschool.com/upgrade-adobe-photoshop-lightroom-6-current-lightroom-user/ ** Please watch this tutorial instead if you are a brand new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom user installing Lightroom 6 for the very first time: https://youtu.be/mvVVlf92DMk ** I believe that you get far more value from the Adobe Photography Creative Cloud Subscription Plan option then you get from the standalone Lightroom 6 product, but if you are sure that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 is the right choice for you, and if you are currently a Lightroom user, then this is the appropriate software installation tutorial for you. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

(PREVIEW) How To Use The White Balance Tool In Snapseed From Google We use the term White Balance when we are talking about color correction in digital photography. Our smartphones are pretty good at creating images where the colors match our expectations most of the time but there are circumstances when the camera simply gets it wrong. Times like this call for color correction using the *White Balance Tool* in Snapseed from Google. In addition to color correction in our mobile photos, there are also times when we intentionally want to shift the colors around in our photography to intentionally create a different mood.

How To Install Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 For The Brand New User

(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Install Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 For The Brand New User The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 installation process is confusing. Unfortunately, the installer package that you purchased at the store, or downloaded online, provides minimal instruction. This lack of clear guidance from Adobe often creates unnecessary confusion for brand new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom users. Unlike most other software programs, there are multiple steps involved in the Photoshop Lightroom 6 installation process. This video tutorial will talk you through the initial software installation only. We have other tutorials at our website on the next steps including setting Lightroom's preferences and designing a robust backup system for your photography. I believe that you get far more value from the monthly Adobe Photography Creative Cloud Subscription Plan option then you get from the standalone Lightroom 6 product, but if you are sure that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 is the right choice for you, then this is the appropriate software installation tutorial for you.

Adobe Photoshop CC Preferences Menu Suggestions For Photographers
 
09:30
(FREE TUTORIAL) Let's take this opportunity to cover some *Adobe Photoshop CC Preferences* and other important settings. You will not learn anything about image enhancement in this tutorials but your workflow might suffer if you skip over these settings. Most of the settings that I suggest changing in the Adobe Photoshop CC Preferences Menus video above are optional but there is one setting in here that is worth additional discussion. If you have setup Adobe Photoshop Lightroom's Preferences to create .psd files for you when you send a copy of your image over to Photoshop CC for additional editing then you should set the "Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility" preference setting in the File Handling Tab to "Always." The factory default setting of "Ask" will do you no harm but choosing the "Never" option is shooting yourself in the foot. If you tell Photoshop CC to create a .psd files without the "Maximize Compatibility" option turned on then you will create a file that Lightroom cannot handle! If your .psd file lacks the Maximize Compatibility instructions then it cannot be added into your Lightroom Catalog. Fortunately, this "Maximize Compatibility" conundrum applies to .psd files only. One of the best ways to avoid this problem altogether is to configure Lightroom so that it creates .tif files instead of .psd files when you ask it to send a copy of your image over to Photoshop CC for additional editing. Working with layered .tif files, rather than .psd images, is my recommendation for most photographers whenever possible. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Use Keyword Sets in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

(PREVIEW) How To Use Keyword Sets in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Good keywords make searching through thousands of images inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom completely painless. Keywords are an invaluable organizational tool in Lightroom but most photographers dread the data-entry time required to add Keywords into every image. The trouble is that typing out keyword after keyword, image after image, is a daunting time-consuming task. One clever way to dramatically speed things up is by working with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom's often-overlooked *Keyword Sets* function.

Better Sunset Photos Using Luminosity Masks In Adobe Photoshop
 
07:01
(PREVIEW) Better Sunset Photos Using A Color Glaze And Luminosity Masks In Adobe Photoshop We can create richer more colorful sunsets in Photoshop by blending a unifying wash of color, a glaze, into all of the other colors in our sunset using this elegant technique. I will teach you how to create better sunset colors using a color glazing layer and luminosity masks in this Adobe Photoshop tutorial. Let me warn you that things are going to look terrible at first as we go through this color glazing process. If you only get as far as step one, or step two, in here then the results will be disappointing. I urge you to stick with me through the whole routine. At first, we are going to create a *Solid Color Fill Layer* that will affect our entire image. That part often throws people but once we have added our wash of color then we can target our glazing specifically to the brightest pixels in our image using a Layer Mask. Now there are lots of ways that we can do this kind of targeting in Adobe Photoshop but for this technique *Luminosity Masks* are our best option. Creating a luminosity mask sounds complicated, but the truth is that they are really easy to generate once you learn some secret settings inside of Adobe Photoshop's *Apply Image* dialog. This image enhancement trick is not hard, but you will need a basic understanding of the way that Layers and Layer Masks function in Adobe Photoshop to follow along with this routine. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Use The Face Enhance Filter in Snapseed From Google The *Portrait Filter* in Snapseed from Google is a great tool for improving your headshots, and selfies. You can use the Portrait Filters controls inside of this amazing filter to brighten up your subject's face, to smooth out some of the wrinkles in their skin, and to add additional punch into their eyes. What’s so amazing here is that we do not have to make any selections, or use any type of masking tool, to accomplish this feat. Snapseed’s incredible facial recognition technology is able to identify the appropriate parts of your subject's eyes all on its own. Snapseed pumps up the sharpness of your subject's eyes as you increase the *Eye Clarity* settings within the Portrait filter. Similar facial recognition magic, without the need for manual masking, is automatically activated for your subject's whole head when you adjust the *Face Spotlight* feature. This control is an great way to drive your viewer's attention towards the most important element in any portrait which is, of course, your subject's smiling face!

How To Backup Adobe Photoshop Lightroom with Apple's Time Machine Utility

(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Backup Adobe Photoshop Lightroom with Apple's Time Machine Utility Learn how to protect your Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog and all of your photographs in this free video tutorial for Mac OS users. I demonstrate an easy way to protect all of my images, and my Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog, using the Apple's Time Machine utility in this free tutorial and a pair of inexpensive USB external hard drives. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a wonderful image management tool but it is not a backup system. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom’s internal Catalog Backup utility is a placebo and it will do nothing to protect your photography if your computer crashes or hard drive fails. An Adobe Creative Cloud monthly membership subscription is not a backup plan either. Adobe does not offer data protection and backup services. The problem is that no hard drive will last forever. The real question is not “when will my hard drive fail” but rather “what steps can I take right now so that I am properly prepared for this computer’s inevitable demise?” For advice on building a more advanced, and more flexible backup system, using the awesome Carbon Copy Cloner backup utility for Mac from Bombich Software please visit our site.

Facial Recognition In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic Updated
 
17:56
(FREE TUTORIAL) Facial Recognition In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic Updated Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic’s updated *Facial Recognition* engine is designed to help you quickly Keyword pictures of our friends and family. When used properly, the new Face Recognition technology is pretty amazing stuff. What’s even more incredible is that Lightroom’s new search and suggest algorithms get better and better as you teach the software which Person Keywords to associate with each face that the software detects. When Adobe first introduced facial recognition back in 2015, I was not all that impressed. With the April 2018 Lightroom Classic 7.3 update though many of this features shortcomings have been improved. With the latest update, Lightroom Classic’s facial recognition has been improved and there is now a new Find Faces Again command. The Facial Recognition System, which we access through the People Viewing Mode in the Library Module, is extremely powerful, but it is not particularly user-friendly. It pays to know what you are doing before you make any mistakes with this elegant organizational feature. One other important point to make here. You are still in control of your privacy. Over the past three years, I have talked to lots of photographers who have completely ignored this feature out of fear that facial recognition might send more information than we want to share about our loved ones with Adobe or some other “big brother” system. If you choose to make use of this new feature, rest assured that all of the facial recognition indexing is done inside of your computer. No information is being sent to the Adobe’s servers or the “cloud.” Right now, no information is sent from your Lightroom Catalog to any other program or any centralized mass database. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

The Healing Brush In Adobe Lightroom CC For Mobile
 
16:33
(FREE TUTORIAL) The Healing Brush In Adobe Lightroom CC For Mobile The *Healing Brush Tool,* which is an essential feature for dust spot repair, has finally been added into the Adobe Lightroom CC For Mobile App for iOS and Android devices! With the new Healing Brush, and Clone Stamp, capability it is easy to zap dust spots, and remove other unwanted objects from our images, using only our finger tips or an Apple Pencil on an Apple iPad Pro. We have been fixing dust spots, and removing other small imperfections, for years using the Healing Brush and Clone Stamp Tools in Adobe Lightroom Classic but until now this essential feature has been completely missing in the Adobe Lightroom CC For Mobile world. The lack of spot, and blemish, removal tools until now has been a big gap in professional-grade mobile image processing but fortunately the brilliant engineers at Adobe have found an elegant way to make this work on our smartphones and tablets. The fact that we can now do non-destructive dust spot removal work, and more, on our phones and tablets is amazing. The fact that all of the work that we do in Adobe Lightroom CC, including spot removal, automatically syncs back to the full-resolution desktop version of our images is even more amazing. But when it comes to precision, I believe that there is still no substitute for a bigger screen and a more accurate interface device like a mouse. Adobe Lightroom CC For Mobile’s new Healing Brush is a great addition but if you need to do extensive retouching work then you are still better off working away on a computer. My advice is that you save this new mobile option for images that need only minor retouching work. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

(PREVIEW) How To Setup The User Interface In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom One of the things that makes learning Adobe Photoshop Lightroom difficult is its complex User Interface. This is a program full of hidden buttons and secret settings. Now I know that a video tutorial on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom’s User Interface is pretty dull material but trust me!

How To Fix The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog Is Too New Error Message
 
02:33
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Fix The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog Is Too New Error Message A number of the photographers that I assist in private one-on-one Adobe Photoshop Lightroom technical support sessions have been reporting a similar error message lately. Each of these clients reports receiving an error message that says that their Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog "cannot be opened because it is too new to be used by this version of Lightroom." Usually this error message appears a few day after installing a Photoshop Lightroom update or upgrading from an older version of the Lightroom application. Fortunately, there is a quick and easy solution to this problem. If you encounter this error message on startup then all that you need to do is to tell your computer to open this Lightroom Catalog (your .lrcat file) using the most recently installed version of the Lightroom Application. In the Mac world, this is best done by right-clicking on your .lrcat file and using the Open With command. Windows users will find the same command with a right-click although so far I have mostly seen this error on computer's running the Mac operating system. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Upgrade To Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic
 
11:52
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Upgrade To Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic Installing the new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic upgrade can be a frustrating experience for current Lightroom users. First, you need to be sure that you are installing the right program. As of October 2017, there are now two versions of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom: Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC. The names are important here. Adobe is rebranding the product that we have come to love over the past decade. What has called Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC or Lightroom v.6 in the past is now called *Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic.* Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic is not the same as the brand new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC v1.0 program that was also introduced this week. If you are interested in upgrading to the new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC program, or if you are not currently an Adobe Creative Cloud customer, then this is not the right tutorial for you.

How To Backup Adobe Lightroom Classic Using GoodSync (Windows)
 
13:14
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Backup Adobe Lightroom Classic And Your Photos Using GoodSync (Windows) Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a wonderful image management tool but it is not a backup system. The real question to ask yourself is not “when will my hard drive fail” but rather “what steps can I take right now so that I am properly prepared for my hard drive’s inevitable demise?” All that it takes to make a really good backup system is a pair of inexpensive external hard drives and some simple software. To make a robust backup, all that we need to do is configure a backup utility program to copy everything from your primary photo storage drive over to one of your inexpensive external hard drives on a regular basis. We can configure software like GoodSync Personal v.10 (https://www.goodsync.com/lp?frm=gsp-015&affid=dmarx) to automatically copy everything from your primary disk to one of your backup drives while you are sleeping. As long as you rotate between the two backup disks on a regular basis then you have a robust, redundant backup system!

How To Use The Map Module In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
 
12:50
(PREVIEW) How To Use The Map Module In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Adobe Photoshop Lightroom’s Map Module is a phenomenal organization tool for landscape and travel photographers like me. Although Photoshop Lightroom’s Map Module is one of the most useful features in the entire program it gets almost no publicity or praise. This is a shame because image organization for a photographer like me who loves to travel is so much easier once you understand what Lightroom's Map Module can do for you. Perhaps the power of Lightroom’s Map Module gets overlooked because of two myths and misunderstandings. *Myth #1:* There is a mistaken belief that you need to shoot with a camera that has a built in GPS receiver in order to use this Module. As you can see in the video tutorial excerpt above, this is not true at all. Adding GPS data to photographs that were not geotagged by the camera at the time of capture is literally drag-and-drop easy. *Myth #2:* There is a fear amongst some Lightroom users that including geo-referenced data in their files will broadcast their favorite shooting locations or compromise their privacy. This is definitely a meaningful concern but I assure you that there are strong safeguards built into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom to ensure that your privacy is indeed protected without missing out on the power of this fantastic organizational tool. I do not cover Lightroom's Location privacy controls in this short tutorial excerpt but I assure you that they are there and that I do explain them in-depth the complete HD version of this video lesson. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Build A Better Workspace For Photo Editing- Adobe Photoshop CC
 
12:50
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Build A Better Workspace For Photo Editing In Adobe Photoshop CC I am going to teach you how to build a better *workspace for photo editing* inside of Adobe Photoshop CC in this tutorial. You are not going to learn any image enhancement skills in this video, but please trust me. This lesson is important. Learning Adobe Photoshop CC will be so much easier for you if you play along with this one. Unlike Adobe Lightroom's fixed, Adobe Photoshop CC uses configurable *Palettes* to hold tools and information about the current image. Any palette, or panel’s, frame can be expanded, contracted, or minimized with the push of a button. Extra palettes can be hidden away when they are not needed. The arrangement of palettes on the screen in Adobe Photoshop CC is called a workspace. From the factory, Adobe Photoshop CC includes a half-dozen sample workspaces. These workspaces are samples that Adobe has built for different types of Photoshop user. Each of the default workspaces is designed to show off some of Photoshop CC's capabilities for graphic design artists, web designers, videographers and more. Now there is nothing wrong with these factory default workspaces but we can build, and save, our own custom workspace that hides a lot of extraneous palettes away. Cleaning up Photoshop's user interface, and hiding away features, that we photographer's will never use makes it much easier to focus in on the important stuff while you are learning to use this complex program. In the end, the time that it takes to save a quieter workspace for photo editing really pays off in the long run! ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

I have not found anything in the new Adobe Photoshop CC 2017release yet that I would call "revolutionary" but the latest version of the world's most powerful image-enhancement software does include some interesting new features. Adobe's Creative Cloud software distribution system makes downloading and installing this new software easier but you definitely want to know what you are doing before you begin the Upgrade process. It is always a good idea to make a complete backup of your computer before undertaking any major software change like installing this new version of Adobe Photoshop CC. (See https://www.focusphotoschool.com/adobe-photoshop-lightroom/adobe-photoshop-lightroom-setup/professional-grade-backup-plans/ for advice on making a robust backup of your images and your computer) Often the hardest part of upgrading from one version of Adobe Photoshop CC to another is keeping your third-party plugins from disappearing.

As you will see, synchronizing Collections from your Lightroom Desktop Catalog with your mobile devices is a piece of cake if you are an Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Creative Cloud user. There are three things that you should know before you start working with the Adobe Lightroom CC for Mobile App. First, if you are not an Adobe Creative Cloud Subscriber then unfortunately this tutorial is not for you.

Camera Profiles Take Center Stage In Adobe Lightroom Classic
 
08:56
(FREE TUTORIAL) Camera Profiles Take Center Stage In Adobe Lightroom Classic I am delighted to tell you about a big change that was just released for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic and the rest of the Lightroom family. With the latest update (Lightroom Classic CC 7.3), Adobe has finally made the powerful *Camera Profiles* feature much easier to find and they have dramatically expanded what camera profiles can do for us while we are fine-tuning our images. Think of the camera profile choices as if they were different types of film. Camera profiles control the look of your image’s original tones and colors. Camera Profiles in the Adobe Raw group are designed to optimize the starting point for your image. The new Adobe Color profile, for example, is designed to be the “one-size” fits all option with a good balance of contrast and saturation that should work well on the average color image. Adobe Monochrome, on the other hand, is designed to create a strong starting point for the average black and white conversion. In addition, Adobe has introduced a new *Profile Browser* feature and created a whole new category of camera profiles. Where things get really interesting though are the new camera profiles in the Artistic, Modern, Black and White, and Vintage group. Unlike traditional camera raw profiles, these creative profiles can make changes to your images that would otherwise be impossible using Lightroom alone. A brand new Amount slider appears if you select one of these creative camera profiles. Using this slider, you can increase or decrease the strength of the changes that this camera profile creates to give your image more or less of the desired effect. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

The New Auto Button: Artificial Intelligence And Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
 
10:12
(PREVIEW) The New Auto Button: Artificial Intelligence And Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Buried inside of the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic 7.1 update, which was released in December of 2017, is a fascinating little change. In the Lightroom 7.1 update, the old feeble Auto-Tone button has been replaced with a new *Auto* option. This new Auto exposure and saturation adjustment feature, which uses Artificial Intelligence, works so much better than its predecessor! From what I understand, Adobe has built an advanced neural network machine that is capable of learning from gigantic data sets. When this artificial intelligence program is given enough information to sort through it can recognize patterns and then it can teach itself to automate certain tasks. In our case, Adobe Sensei watched how a group of professional photographers tuned up thousands of images using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and then it began to draw its own conclusions. When we press the new Auto button now, I believe that Adobe's algorithm says to itself that “this image matches the style of thousands of other images that I have studied." Next, the algorithm says something like "I need to move the sliders in Lightroom's Basic Panel this way" to make this image look more like those for you and that is how we are getting this vastly improved results. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Use The Crop Tool In Snapseed From Google

(PREVIEW) How To Use The Crop Tool In Snapseed From Google The *Crop Tool* in Snapseed from Google is not a terribly complicated feature but like so many things in this amazing App there is more to discover here then first meets the eye. Once Snapseed’s Crop Tool loads you will find two new buttons for this tool on the Toolbar at the bottom of your screen. The button on the right, the one that says Format on iOS Devices or Aspect Ratio on Android Devices, will bring up the Crop Aspect Ratio options. If you want the ability to set any rectangular shape that you want for your crop then tap on the Free option. With Free Crop selected, you can drag the cropping frame around using any of the corners to change the visible part of your image. The Free Crop option is the right choice when you only want to keep part of your original photo and you don’t care whether or not your finished product will fit perfectly into a fixed layout. There are times though when unrestricted cropping can be quite frustrating. It is hard to drag both sides of the crop frame in to make an absolutely perfect square, for use on Instagram for example, when the Free Crop option is enabled. But fear not. This is where Snapseed’s Crop Ratio options really shine. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

Develop Presets vs. Camera Profiles In Adobe Lightroom Classic
 
13:02
(FREE TUTORIAL) Develop Presets vs. Camera Profiles In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic I have been getting lots of questions recently about the difference between *Develop Presets* and the new *Camera Profiles* feature inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic. Although these two features have a lot in common on the surface, there are some important differences in the way that they function inside of your image enhancement workflow. Lightroom Develop Presets are shortcuts that store Develop slider settings. When you apply a Develop Preset to an image in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic, you are applying a recipe that says move slider X to position Y every time. Camera Profiles also apply an overall look to your photo but they leave all of your Develop sliders unchanged. Since Camera Profiles alter the way that Lightroom interprets the underlying color data, or the level of contrast, in your original raw file they can produce looks that are impossible to achieve using any of Lightroom’s Develop sliders only. I like to think of the Camera Profile as if it was the type of film that you might have loaded into your camera back in the film photography days. Choosing a high-saturation, high-contrast, “film” will give your landscape and travel photos extra pop. For a portrait session, or a foggy day, using a lower-saturation profile makes more sense. In addition, you can fine tune the strength of a Creative Profile with the new Amount slider in a way that Develop Presets cannot match without additional plugins. In the end, clever Lightroom Classic users learn to use both of these features at different stages of their image processing routine. Both features have tremendous value, and offer unique time-saving capabilities, when used properly. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

Moving Your Photos To A Larger Hard Drive Without Upsetting Lightroom Classic
 
18:22
(FREE TUTORIAL) How To Move Your Photos To A Larger Hard Drive Without Upsetting Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic You would think that moving your entire photo library from a small drive over to a bigger disk would be easy, but for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic users this is actually a rather complex process. In this video tutorial, I am going to show you how to move all of your photos to a larger hard drive without upsetting Lightroom Classic. I need to stress that what I do in this video is not an image backup system. What we are going to do today is to replace one storage device with another. The link below will take you to my in-depth tutorial on how to backup all of your photography and your Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Catalog using external hard drives: https://www.focusphotoschool.com/adobe-photoshop-lightroom/adobe-photoshop-lightroom-setup/lightroom-backup/ As you will see throughout this video, I am going to use a wonderful utility called *Carbon Copy Cloner* for this project. Mac users, follow the link below to download a free trial version of this wonderful software. https://bombich.com/ There is a free utility from Microsoft out there called the *Windows SyncToy* for you PC users that will just fine for this project. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15155 If you are playing along with the Windows SyncToy then be sure that you nail down the Windows drive letter assignment system for all of your external devices before you begin this project. And be sure to set up a one-way, a left to right, style sync only. Two-way syncing could be disastrous for you Windows users! Finally, I need to warn you that there is an element of risk involved in this process. Moving all of your photos to a larger hard drive without upsetting Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic is nothing to fear but this is serious business. So please rewind this video as often as you need and don't jump into this process until you are sure that you have redundant reliable backups. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Use The Black And White Mix Panel In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
 
08:21
(PREVIEW) How To Use The Black And White Mix Panel In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom I demonstrate my favorite way to turn full-color images into striking black and white photographs using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom's *Black and White Mix Panel* in this video tutorial excerpt. Working with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom's Black and White Mix Panel is not the quickest way to turn a color image into a black and white masterpiece but it is one of the most powerful techniques available within this program. Amazing black and white results are easy to achieve once you learn to utilize the Black and White Mix Panel plus Lightroom's powerful tonal controls and a couple of other helpful sliders. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Use Noise Reduction In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
 
08:47
(PREVIEW) How To Use Noise Reduction In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom When we talk about noise in digital photography we are not talking about something audible. "Noise" in this context refers to the statical math concept of signal to noise ratio. Noise here refers to the quantity of real vs. false information that the sensor records when you click the trigger. Noise in this context means the false colored pixels that the sensor mistakenly recorded while the shutter was open. With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom's help we can make images that are acceptably clean even when our original capture was a mess. But the noise reduction comes at a price. We get rid of the noise by adding blur in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. The more noise reduction that your image needs then the more blur that we must introduce into an otherwise crisp image using Lightroom's Noise Reduction sliders. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.

How To Make An HDR In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC (6)
 
07:30
(PREVIEW) How To Make An HDR In Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC (6) The *Merge To HDR* feature in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC (6) works best when it is fed two raw files. Most other HDR programs require three, or more, images to create an HDR composite but Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC is different. You will get better results, and save processing time, if you ask Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC to tie together just two carefully bracketed digital camera raw files. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC’s Merge To HDR works best when it is asked to combine one raw file that contains plenty of highlight detail with another exposure of the same scene that contains plenty of shadow details. Unlike the Merge To HDR Command in Adobe Photoshop, or software like Photomatix, there is no need to give Lightroom an additional “mid-tone” exposure. Often, adding additional exposures into Lightroom’s Merge To HDR command only slows down the image processing and increases the likelihood of creating weird ghosting artifacts. ------------ Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Lightroom for Mobile, Snapseed from Google, and more with our complete video training courses at http://www.focusphotoschool.com.
