“Match Total Exposure” May Be the Coolest Lightroom Setting You Didn’t Know About

This may be one of the coolest Lightroom 5 features you didn’t know about. I never stumbled upon this one. But it is definitely cool, and a big time saver too.

Watch Matt Kloskowski walk you thru a LR feature called “Match Total Exposure” that is as easy to use as it is powerful. Let’s say you have some wrongly exposed photos, as in a bracketing sequence because you forgot to deactivate bracketing (that’s the example in the video). You can auto-magically adjust the exposure of these pictures simply by selecting them, and then selecting a photo with the right exposure. Then clicking on a menu entry and the magic happens. This works not just for bracketing sequences. The video lasts 5 minutes, don’t miss it because is a lot of good tip for the short time you have to watch.

CPN Published Part 4 of Inside Lightroom & Photoshop CC Workflow (Lightroom Mobile)

Lightroom

Canon started bundling Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography program to the EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D DSLRs, and then the PowerShot G1 X Mark II and PowerShot G7 X. Since then, the Canon Professional Network published a tutorial series titled Inside Lightroom & Photoshop CC Workflow. Part 4 “Lightroom Mobile” has just been posted. The tutorial comes with video and text.

Lightroom Mobile can be dowloaded for free but needs a subscription to Lightroom & Photoshop CC program or a 30 days trail period. Adobe’s Lightroom & Photoshop CC program is $.99/€12.29 per month.

Adobe Lightroom 5.7 and Camera RAW 8.7 Now Available (support for 7D2 and G7 X)

Adobe Lightroom

Adobe released Lightroom 5.7 ( Mac | Win) and Camera Raw 8.7 and DNG Converter 8.7 (Mac | Win), with added support for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Powershot G7 X.

The new release updates some features:

  • Synced collections now show a more prominent share button at the top of the Toolbar.  This allows you to quickly share your synced collection with friends, family, and clients using Lightroom web (http://lightroom.adobe.com).
  • Comments and likes left on Lightroom web now sync to the Lightroom desktop catalog.  Comments and Likes will be shown in the “Comment” panel for synced collections.
  • Images with comments and likes will display a badge indicating that there are comments and a colored badge to indicate that there are unread comments.

Integrated a utility to import images from Apple Aperture and Apple iPhoto libraries into Lightroom:

  • Previously available as a separate and downloadable plug-in, this utility has now been integrated into Lightroom 5.7

Corrected bugs:

  • The crop overlay displayed an intermediate step when progressing through images in the filmstrip with overlay displayed.
  • The lens profile for the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 would not auto-select when using Lens Profile Corrections.
  • ICC profiles resulted in incorrectly clipped shadows and blacks in Lightroom.  Note that this is related to the issue identified here and only occurs on Mac OSX 10.9 and later
  • Fixed crash when rapidly adding corrections with the Spot Removal tool.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the Filter Brush cursor from displaying while changing brush size when the Graduated and Radial Filter overlay is turned off.
  • Improved quality of Camera Matching color profiles for the Nikon D810. Fixes visible banding issues with the Camera Standard, Camera Vivid, Camera Landscape, and Camera Monochrome profiles.
  • Context menu (right click on PC or control+click on Mac) was disabled for images contained in Lightroom mobile collections.
  • Fixed issue that prevented Lightroom 5 from reading Photoshop Elements 13 libraries.
  • Cover images set by Lightroom mobile were sometimes incorrectly reset by Lightroom desktop.
  • Sync with Lightroom mobile sometimes stalled when asset is added to same album on both LrM and LrD and later deleted
  • Resolved issue that caused Lightroom to crash when creating a Print and saving it to a mounted DVD directly inside Lightroom.
  • Publishing images to Behance using the Behance Publish Service has been restored.

New lens profiles were also added:

Canon EF SIGMA 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM C014
Canon EF SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM S014
Canon EF Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8
Canon EF Zeiss Otus 1.4/85 ZE
