Lot’s of Lightroom stuff to share with you today, but let’s start with Lightroom Magazine news! :)

lrmag

“Lightroom Magazine” has been “a magazine within a magazine” as its own section inside Photoshop User magazine (the official magazine publishing 10-times a year for KelbyOne members), but Lightroom has become such a big thing, that we felt it needed to be its own separate stand-alone magazine, and well…now it is!

This gives us the opportunity to expand our Lightroom coverage going forward (like adding new columns from Lightroom gurus Martin Evening, and Serge Ramelli), and to include photography related articles and features. Both of these magazines are created exclusively for KelbyOne members, if you are one, you’ll now receive both magazinse now as part of your membership (basically, you’ll be getting a new magazine, either Photoshop User or Lightroom Magazine, every few weeks).

Back Issues are here, too!
Also (this is huge!), we are putting an archive of the past year’s Lightroom Magazine on the KelbyOne member site, so you can easily access any issues you’ve missed. We’ve done the same for Photoshop User magazine back issues issues as well — we have back issues now available online going back to January of 2014. You’ll find these on the magazine link on your member dashboard (and if you’re not a member already, why the heck not? Here’s the link to join now!)

The new issue of Photoshop User is here!
You might have already caught my Holiday Gear Guide here on the blog, but there’s a TON of awesome stuff in the issue (available right now from your KelbyOne members dashboard).

Lightroom CC and Lightroom Mobile for IOS Updates
By now you’re probably heard about yesterday’s launch of new updates for Lightroom CC and Lightroom Mobile for IOS (with a whole new editing User Interface for the iPhone version -seen above), but if you missed any of that, I covered them both over at LightroomKillerTips.com

> Here’s what’s new in Lightroom CC

> Here’s what’s new in Lightroom Mobile for iPhone

Sharpening and Noise Reduction in Lightroom Mobile
These were actually released in the last update, but now you can actually find them. Here’s the link to my article today about how to take advantage of these previously kinda hidden features.

Oh, but there’s more Lightroom love today….

What to learn something seriously awesome in Lightroom this weekend?
Pro retoucher Kristi Sherk’s new course on “Portrait Retouching in Lightroom” is getting such rave reviewers from our members — it’s a big hit! Watch the official trailer above, and then this weekend, make it point to catch her class. You will absolutely LOVE what you learn about Lightroom brushes in this class.  Here’s the link to Kristi’s course.

Let’s wrap up with a tip on dealing with Clipping in Lightroom
This is a video tip (above) I did for my other blog, LightroomKillerTips.com (I post four-days a week there). The tip above is short, sweet, but shows you how to deal with something we have to deal with in our photography, and Lightroom makes it’s easy. :)

OK, that’s a lotta Lightroom Love for one day!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, full of Lightroom and eggnog, and we’ll catch ya next week. :)

Best,

-Scott

  1. Hi Scott,

    Regarding the Lightroom clipping video. You mentioned that sometimes a JPEG preview of the RAW image will indicate it is clipped when it really isn’t clipping when you open the RAW file. Does that mean that we need to be careful with pushing our RAW files – for instance if I have a RAW that I brighten up to just below clipping and then save that as a JPEG to send to a print shop could the act of converting it to a JPEG actually cause clipping? Maybe your Lightroom book answers that but I’m not done yet :).

    • You are way over-thinking this. All it means is, if you see a little clipping on the back of the camera, that probably means you don’t have any clipping in the actual RAW file. If you see a lot of clipping on the back of the camera, it will be much less in the actual RAW file. So, you may not need to compensate as much in-camera, knowing what you see on the back of your camera is an exaggeration of how much clipping, if any, there is. It has nothing to do with what file format you save it in later. :)

  2. Scott, I know you have a heart for both photography and people that suffer. I thought you’d be impressed by this story in the news this week. The invention bringing a terminally ill man happiness
