How To Use Lightroom’s “Guided Upright” To Fix Lens Perspective Problems
Lightroom Killer Tips
by Scott Kelby
2d ago
I’ve been doing a series of in-depth photo guides for travel photographers for KelbyOne, and I’ve done it for locations all over the world (Paris, London, Lisbon, Rome, New York, Tuscany, Venice, and more), where I share the best places to shoot, the GPS coordinates; I show images from each location and give as many insights as I can. I did one for Chicago as well and one of the locations I talked about was a parking garage where you can shoot down on an intersection of the “L” (Elevated trains). When my co-host for the course, Larry Becker, saw the behind-the-scenes shot of me taking the sho ..read more

Updated Catalog Looks Wrong?
Lightroom Killer Tips
by Rob Sylvan
1w ago
Don’t panic! It is not unusual to hear reports of some or all photos seemingly going missing after a new version of Lightroom Classic comes out that requires the upgrade of a copy of your catalog. The release of Lightroom Classic 13.3 required a catalog upgrade as part of the process of using this new version of the software. When this happens, Lightroom Classic creates a copy of (what it thinks is) your working catalog, and then upgrades that copy to work in the new version, then opens with that upgraded copy. If Lightroom Classic opens and all seems exactly the same as when you last quit the ..read more

“Seven Clicks To Done” (a Little Masking Goes A Long Way!)
Lightroom Killer Tips

This is just a quickie, but it shows how a little masking goes a long way. Above: Here’s the raw image out of the camera. Here’s a link to download the Raw image if you want to follow along: 2T3A0962.CR3_Download STEP ONE: The image is a little crooked, so head to the Transform panel (called the Geometry panel in the cloud version of Lightroom), and under ‘Unright,’ click on Auto (as seen here). By the way – you generally get better results from Upright if you first apply a Lens Profile in the Lens Correction panel (called the ‘Optics’ panel in LR cloud), but since the photo was taken with a ..read more

Adaptive Presets for Lens Blur
Lightroom Killer Tips
by Rob Sylvan
3w ago
In the May update we saw the Lens Blur feature graduate from early access to a full-fledged feature, and with that came a set of adaptive presets for applying lens blur. We’ve seen other forms of adaptive presets in the past, such as those for portrait, sky, and subject. Added to the Presets panel is a new group for blurring the background. Adaptive presets utilize the AI-based subject detection capabilities to select or mask the target subject and then apply settings to the masked area. With the new lens blur presets it will attempt to detect the subject and then apply lens blur settings to ..read more

Only Show in Shared Photos
Lightroom Killer Tips

Here’s a funny thing that happened to me. I guess this option has been in the Lightroom (Lr) app for iOS for a few years, but I only just discovered it by accident, which seems to be the only way anyone ever uses it. As best as I can tell, it isn’t available in Lr on Mac, Win, or Android, but if you are determined, you might be able to find it at lightroom.adobe.com. What I’m referring to is the menu option, Only show in Shared Photos, hidden in the 3-dot menu next to an album that is already enabled for sharing. This is it on an iPhone. What happened is that I didn’t even notice it, and fat ..read more
