Applying Lightroom Presets with While Balance Settings

If you include White Balance settings in a preset applied to a Raw file, and apply that preset to a JPEG file, Lightroom tries to apply the equivalent white balance  adjustment (but using the JPEG scale). Therefore, the White Balance adjustment on a JPEG (using a preset based on a raw file) is necessarily an approximation.  We try to do the closest job we can, but results will vary somewhat on a case by case basis.

Applying Presets using the Painter Tool in Lightroom 4

I often see photographers using the Painter tool in Lightroom to apply star ratings. Don’t forget, there is a whole list of different items that can be applied – including Keywords, Label, Flag, Rating, Metadata, Settings (Presets), Rotation and Target Collection!

Renaming Presets in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop

Although there isn’t a menu item to rename your presets in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop, you can simply rename them in the operating system. Your Camera Raw Presets are located here:

• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings

• Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings

If you are on a Mac running Lion, the Library menu is hidden by default. To reveal it, hold the option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.

Saving Lens Correction Presets in Lightroom

When saving a Develop preset to enable lens correction check the “Lens Profile Corrections” option in the New Develop Preset dialog.  To remove Chromatic Aberration, check that option as well. The other options (Transform and Lens Vignetting) refer to the options in the Manual area of the panel and are, as a general rule, more likely to be applied on a per image basis and not as part of a Lens Correction preset (of course there are exceptions).

Lightroom 4 Beta – Additional Preferences

• On Mac, in the General preferences, you can now choose your preferred Language.

• Under Presets, several features have options to Restore Presets and Templates to their defaults. This may be very useful in teaching environments.

• In the External Editing preferences, you can now choose to “Stack with original”.

• Under the File Handling Preferences, be sure to keep the “Embed Fast Load Data” checked on for DNG. This can enable DNG files to load up to 8x faster in the Develop module and will only cost you approximately 200K per image!
