Only ten days left to sign up for the Lightroom Zoom meeting. The topic is the Lightroom Develop Module and will cover all the tabs in the module and how to best use the options in processing your raw files. Sign up ends at noon on Tuesday August 4th. The price of admission is only $15.00

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, August 5th, 2020. The meeting is hosted by the Hershey Library. I will be demonstrating raw processing of several files from camera capture to finished. If you only work in Lightroom and do not do finishing work in Photoshop there will be quite a few tips for how to make your images as powerful as possible using only the tools in the Develop Module.

The image above was processed using only Lightroom Develop Module options. The original was shot on a Canon EOS Rebel SL-1 with an 18-55 STM kit lens, at 1/50 sec, f/8, ISO 400.

Care was taken to introduce as much detail as possible while suppressing noise that might have been imposed by poor choices in the Presence options of the Basic tab and the Detail options in Sharpening the image. The warmth of sunset was imposed using Split Toning and balanced with HSL options.

If these things do not mean much to you, you might enjoy getting to know Lightroom better. While Lightroom processing is very powerful, it can be destructive to your image quality if you do not pay attention to the details.

If you process in ACR instead of Lightroom you will find the information equally useful as the ACR engine and Lightroom are the same.
