LIGHTROOM-ers, You Need To See This Tutorial!

Postby Charles Haacker » Thu May 11, 2017 8:09 pm

I came across Lightroom Coffee Break, a YouTube series of all-under-a-minute Lightroom tips that is very enLIGHTening (pun totally intended). Some of the tips you may already know but it never hurts to refresh, and they are all short enough that you can watch the whole series in a half hour. There is one specific tip, though, that I never thought possible so I immediately felt I needed to share!

Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I have run it 6 times and I still cannot understand what he say after control-alt-hift to get the Adams picture up! he drops his voice and changes pitch to where my el cheapo fake ear cannot amplify it.

You have to really look into what version of Lightroom you have. Older versions don't have that nifty Ansel Adams conversion preset. One way to find out is to look in the version number in the help menu and if it has the AA suffix you're good to go. :look: :dunce:

Yep, I checked mine... it has the SOL suffix. I'll need to update. :o

You guys are hilarious. :rofl:

But seriously (really, not pulling legs or twisting tails or nothin' like that) I did run through the whole series in about 1/2 an hour and, for me anyway, about half the tips were ones I did not know. The sound quality varies a lot but I think once he got a headset mic it helped. :| (SOL suffix! :lol: )

Mine too. 'SOL' plain as day. Good news though, I won't have to buy a new ear and listen to that guy six more times!!!! :x :rofl:

But yes, there were some good tips in that series....and you are right about the microphone later on.
