Lightroom Tag

This week marks a turning point for the Little Studio - I finally had to admit that the hodge-podge of computer programs that I have been using to process digital files - Silkypix, Photoshop Elements, Aperture, and an old copy of Lightroom - were not able to cope with the RAW files of new cameras, and that the makers of the new gear were mutating the stuff faster than I could keep up. So I invested in the first year of the Photoshop and Lightroom CC ...

Cheer as the saturation goes wild! Gasp as the curve goes off the screen. Thrill to the sharpening!This is one artistic RGB bloodbath you won't want to miss! Ring Shannon on 9228 8232 and get your tickets!Thank you for reading this far into the column. Now we can reveal that Adam and Christopher are going to be teaching people about two entirely different Adobe products - Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop - and that they are going to be held on different dates and that they are not really going to be fighting with each other. The two programs are intended for different purposes - and while there can seem to be some overlap between them, they really address separate needs. But here is the interesting part:You can really benefit by learning BOTH programs.I have. Or, I should say,...

It gets ya either :a. 12 months prepaid Lightroom and Photoshop on the Creative Cloud system. Good deal when you have internet access and want to do the more extensive image editing that PS is known for. You'll need to do a little more study and practise with PS than with PSE but the results acan be more controllable for some people. Of course Lightroom may be all you need for 95% of the images that you take - if you don't need to get out the electronic scissors and paste pot them LR is the go.b. One-time for always purchase of Photoshop Elements 14. A slightly less complex version of Photoshop with enough processing power for most amateur and enthusiast users. capable of exhibition or self-publishing standards, though. This blog and many others depends upon PSE processing.These products, like so many others these days, are available via internet downloading with the appropriate licensing numbers. We sell the cards for this, and for a number of other Adobe products, at the front counter. Some of the other things are quite...

The blog you're reading right now is the work one that sells cameras so we must keep on topic...

This has been a weekend of quiet experimentation in the dark room. Not the darkroom -  chemical work was laid aside some years ago and has not been picked up. The dark room that used to be the darkroom, but is now a not-so-dark room. I hesitate to say a light room for fear of Adobe's branding lawyers...

I used to be embarrassed in shop class when the teacher talked about using bastard files. That sort of language was discouraged at home. I was careful not to use it in front of my mother.Bless her, she is long gone. I am free to express myself when I edit pictures on the computer. And I do. Sometimes the family are scandalised and I have noted the occasionally the wife closes the door on the computer room when I am working in there. I just wish she wouldn't wedge it shut with a hammer...
