Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic

By now you may have  heard that Adobe has introduced two versions of Lightroom. One is called Lightroom Classic and the other Lightroom CC. I equate this new naming to this: after your second child is born, giving that child the name of your first child and giving your first born child a new name. Got that?

This naming was confusing to the Adobe professional community as well – to the point of humor. But nonetheless, Adobe went ahead with the name changes. So let me explain the differences.

Using the Lightroom Radial Filter for Portraits

2020-06-03T18:35:20+00:00August 14th, 2017|Adobe Lightroom Classic, Developing, Video, YouTube|

I love using the Lightroom Radial Filter. It’s my most used of the Lightroom CC local adjustment tools. One of our clients even calls it the “instant spotlight” tool.

The Radial Filter Tool This is the Lightroom Radial Filter icon

With the Lightroom Radial Filter, it’s possible to add that light back into the subject’s face by simply drawing a circle and opening up the shadow detail. In portrait photography, it’s not unusual for a professional photographer to use something called a “fill card” to reflect light back into the subject’s face. But the

After years of teaching and training hundreds of clients, we are pleased to announce Lightroom videos from the Lightroom Guys.

So, as a quick aside – What happened to Lightroom CC version 2015.11?

Lightroom CC and Camera Raw both share the same Camera Raw engine (Photoshop also uses Camera Raw). So Adobe decided to skip the Camera Raw update name of 9.11 (with respect to the events of 9/11) and rename it to 9.12 and while they were at it, renamed Lightroom to version 12 as well. This also kept the product version naming consistent.

Also, we know that Adobe now has on the

Do you ever find yourself dreading the amount of time it takes to develop all the photos from your last trip? Well, you are not alone!

One of our solutions is to demonstrate how we take advantage of all the features that Lightroom has to offer. And one of them is, that there are four ways to adjust Lightroom sliders in the Develop module.
