  • I typically use tone-mapping for buildings with structured stone walls (interior of churches, etc.,), and then exposure blending for where I have smooth surfaces with sharp high contrast edges ...
  • I had a go using LR/ACR HSL panel to drastically alter the colorisation (I did start with an Autumn/Fall image though), something like: and then Orton in Photoshop CS/CC (using standard by-hand ...
  • You can roll back (though I have not tried): http://blogs.adobe.com/kevinmonahan/2014/01/29/revert-to-a-previous-version-of-premiere-pro-cc-or-any-creative-cloud-application/ The list you see does ...
  • An LR plugin is LR Lua code - ref the Lightroom SDK - for an interface to LR and then most likely then a separate native OS application with its own user-interface which will actually be the editor ...
  • I don't know the reason, but first checks you should do are by right-clicking on the image(s) in LR (filmstrip in Library or Develop) and select Show in Finder / Show in Explorer, and then verify ...
  • A monitor may exceed aRGB in one or more of R, G, B, so that would be one reason. As you say, allso your some inks/paper combinations can also go outside of aRGB for part of the total gamut. So ...
  • OK - glad you are making progress. So long as the scene has no real movement, I would still be setting a low ISO (100 or 200, not sure what base ISO is on A6000, it will be one of those), then f11 ...
  • Bulb is for exposure timing where the shutter stays open entirely under your manual control to open and close it. So, I am imagining you are at a location after dusk. You are using perhaps ISO200, ...
  • Yes - that is a Sony "problem" with timer-delay and bracketing being on the same drive control/menu (as is/was mirror lock-up on their SLRs). You really need be using a remote release with a ...
  • The license info for LR5 is not in the executable file, it is separate (e.g. "Serial number" file): http://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/preference-file-locations-lightroom-41.html With CC I think ...
  • I have the same question as the other there who is helping you - are you using cable release or a delay self-timer to make sure it is not your hand on the shutter button causing any camera shake?? ...
  • My solution for my normal working tripod and head is Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 with Manfrotto 804RC2 ball head, and I try keep it as low as possible. Make sure I do not mount it on any ground which may ...
  • MLU is for SLRs. It is Mirror Lock Up. One very major source of vibration in an SLR camera that affects the image at slow shutter speeds and long focal lengths is the flipping up of the mirror. ...
  • I don't necessarily agree with them :o). If you take the aperture too small you will get diffraction, but you should easily be able shoot f16 for that kind of shot. I think you are being led to ...
  • I would shoot a night scene like that in manual exposure mode with a smaller aperture (f/16 or smaller)(use the histogram to set shutter speed to get an exposure shifted to the darker end), ...
  • The advice was correct. Personally I would use Photoshop with manual masking and layer stack-up for that as it sounds like you will have an imprecise boundary between what is in focus for each ...
  • Looks like you can do manual (not automatic) focus-stacking in Perfect Layers (as part of Perfect Photo Suite), which I guess is the real question: http://visualstate.wordpress.com/2012/04/12/using ...
  • It can't. LR is not a bitmap editor, so it can't separately manipulate or create the image layers inside a layered bitmap file in the sense that a bitmap tool such as Photoshop can. [LR can read ...
  • Replied in Kuler?
    As you found it is a companion product to Photoshop (and others like Illustrator and InDesign, as well as standalone), and is not really integrated to the host in the sense of actionable controls ...
  • Yes, RAID5 is the most optimal I would say since you are using the total space the most efficiently. Drives do die, and in a RAID5 config you can swap a failed drive easily, and the system will ...
