In this episode of The Complete Picture (Tethered Capture with Lightroom 5), Julieanne walks though setting up the Tethered capture setting in Lightroom and demonstrates how to automatically apply develop settings and presets as well as sort by descending order to view the most recently taken photograph.

In this video tutorial (Print the Perfect Image in Lightroom 5), Julieanne demonstrates how to use the Print module to bring your images into the spotlight and share with clients, friends or family.
In this video tutorial (Exporting Images in Lightroom 5), you’ll master the Export options in Lightroom to quickly automate the creation of multiple files for a variety of different output scenarios.
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.
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!
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.
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).
• 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!
Thanks to all of you who attended my Lightroom seminar at Imaging USA! Here are the links to the Develop module presets (for Lightroom 3) that I mentioned in class as well additional preset sources:
As well as additional great sources for additional Develop Module presets.
In this quick tip (How to add Metadata After Importing Files), Julieanne shows how to add presets/templates using the Metadata panel.
Command + E (Mac) | Control+ E (Win) opens selected files into your primary external editor. In most cases, this will be the most current version of Photoshop installed on your machine. You can also set up a secondary editor, in which case, Command + Option + E (Mac) | Control + Alt + E (Win) will open selected files into the secondary editor.
Click here (Moving Files between Lightroom and Photoshop) to learn more about setting up a secondary external editor (Corel Painter, for example), and creating presets for opening files into specific color spaces and bit depths.
In this quick tip (How to Work with Presets in Lightroom), learn how to update, rename and delete presets and templates in Lightroom.
Saved print templates include page setup and printer specific settings allowing the Print One feature to simply print with the saved template settings.
Command + Option (Mac) / Control + Alt (Win) + P will print one copy.
In this episode of the Complete Picture (Opening Files from Lightroom into Photoshop), I hope to help you avoid unwanted or puzzling results by answering the three most frequently asked questions around opening and round-tripping files from Lightroom to Photoshop.
I am posting the links to these two videos again after presenting the material at Photoshop World last week. My apologies for not including the links in the workbook.
In these episodes of The Complete Picture, I demonstrate how to streamline Lightroom 3 by taking advantage of presets, templates, collections, virtual copies (and more) in order to eliminate much of the repetitive post-capture tasks such as importing, tagging, developing, exporting and sharing photographs.
