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.

Why Won’t Lightroom Import My Files

There are a number of file types that Lightroom supports including an extensive list of Camera Raw Formats (for a complete list click here), DNG, JPEG PSD, TIFF, and AVI, MOV, MP4, AVCHD and other digital video files from digital still cameras (click here for a complete list). But every once in a while, I run into a file that Lightroom can’t open because there are a few exceptions:

• PNG (although they can be used for Identity Plates, Watermarks and Layout Overlay).

• Nikon scanner NEF.

• Files that have the longest dimension greater than 65,000 pixels or are larger than 512 megapixels.

• PSD files saved without Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility turned on in the File Handling Preferences.

• 32 bit PSD files.
