The Ultimate Guide To Workflow In Lightroom And Photoshop - Youtube

We choose to have Lightroom organize everything by date and convert to DNG when importing RAW files. DNG files take up less space on your hard drive and allow cleaner long term storage. File Structure and Naming After importing your files onto your computer or portable hard drive (we use a Promise Pegasus R4), it is time to get everything organized. We change the name of the main folder to include the theme from the photo shoot. In this example our folder is named "2014-05-27 Bahamas Shoot". After naming your main folder it is time to bring each of the images from the shoot together and create sub-folders for organization. We create 4 different subfolders titled "Capture", "Master", Selects", and "Output". The Capture folder is where all of the RAW images from the shoot are placed. When you complete a complex shoot it is often a good idea to create subfolders in the Capture folder that describe different parts of the shoot. In this example we use both "Landscapes" and "Portraits" The Selects folder is where your selects will go, usually exported as TIFs. This will help you to organize and quickly identify the best images from the shoot as well as get them in a file format ready for editing in Photoshop.

lightroom 5 - Workflow Tips and Developing Raw Files - YouTube

Lightroom 5 is even more powerful and has a bunch of tools and keyboard shortcuts at it's disposal. I will cover several concepts on enhancing images using various techniques in a variety of ways. The point is to try and teach you how to edit in different situations so you can apply the techniques on your photos. Every photo is different, so understanding the basic concept is very important.

The Adjustment Brush Tool is located to the right of the Graduated Filter Tool. Once you have selected the Adjustment Brush Tool, the Adjustment Brush Tool Menu will appear, displaying the Brush Settings. As you can see below, we have the same exact options as we did with the Graduated Filter Tool in the Adjustment Brush Menu, starting with Mask and down to Color. In this tutorial, we will not be going over these settings since we have already covered them in the Graduated Filter Tool tutorial . If you want to see how these settings were used with the Graduated Filter Tool, then go through that tutorial first. Adjustment Brush Size and Feathering We can change the size of the Adjustment Brush in a few different ways. First, we can hit [ or ] to make the brush size bigger or smaller. We can also use the mouse wheel and scroll on our mouse to change the size of the brush. Lastly, you can change the brush size with the Size slider. Go down to the second set of settings in the Adjustment Brush Menu. There is a slider for Size that you can use to change the size of the Brush. In addition, you can also type in a specific size for the brush.

How to Use the Adjustment Brush Tool in Lightroom 4

Unflagged images are considered unedited. Rejected Flag images are to be deleted. Only images with pick flags will move on to the next workflow step (note that pick flags added in a quick collection are specific to the quick collection only!). Once images have pick flags, they are further sorted with ratings. I have chosen the following standard for my catalog rating system: = To Archive (images that I want to keep but not develop, i.e. multiples of a better shot that I want to archive for safekeeping) = Client Images to be Worked on (Images that I want to develop that are specific to a paid client shoot, i.e. images that the client would think are great, but I would not include in my stock library) = Images to be Worked On (Images that I plan to spend time developing /processing in Lightroom, normally only images I think have a chance to sell.) = Outstanding Images (Truly great images. Be selective!) = The Very Best (your very best, portfolio quality images only) I have assigned color labels as follows: Red = Personal Photography Yellow = DNG/RAW files I intend to retouch in Photoshop Green = DNG/RAW files that have been developed in Lightroom, are finished but have been retouched in Photoshop (Like negatives for master PSD or TIFF files) Blue = Master images (Final, developed DNG/RAW master files that will not be retouched in Photoshop and all PSD/TIFF files that were retouched in Photoshop) One should note that the color labels in Lightroom are actually derived from text labels embedded in your images metadata. If you have already assigned the red color label Unedited to your images and then change the text assigned to the red label, your red images will lose their color label. If this happens, change the color label title back to Unedited and they will show the color label again! The Complete Lightroom Workflow in Use Once you understand the rating and labeling system, you are ready to import the catalog file you downloaded into your catalog.
