  • Anyone here do pp in Lightroom?

    My friend says it can straighten photos but for the life of me I can't find it.

    I've never used lightroom, but if it's anything like photoshop, you straighten images with the crop tool (since any straightening inevitably involves cropping).

              It needed a bit longer exposure, I think. I added some fill light, not much.

                  Thanks RK. They get crowded here too, but not so much the regular old raggedy ones like this. But San Gennaro can be a nightmare of packed in crowd that can make the Jews exodus from Egypt look like a school outing.

                    tell me about it ... we just don't have that many of them so the few that we do have .. everyone and their brother comes out for. I feel too claustrophobic to go ... I can't stand weaving and winding through people "'scuse me, pardon me, 'scuse me"

                      Ah see, that's where NYers are different. I can't print what we say.

                          I can attest to that.

                            So what do you think of Lightroom anyway, JP? I've been wondering if it's worth trying.

                              Well my review is mixed, I'm afraid. On the 1 hand it's very powerful. For straightening a photo, or correcting white balance, it's unbeatable. For punching up color; also excellent.

                              But, it has a tendency to "zero out" settings such as color when you import a photo. It has it's own idea of "neutral" settings which it imposes on a pic just by importing, and that I absolutely hate. Most of the time I do minimal processing to a photo, if I do any at all. I'm not a great believer in post-processing

                              When it comes to things like redeye reduction or even adding fill light, I actually prefer a simple free program like google's Picasa2, believe it or not. For sharpening, well, there's a hundred programs you can do that in. Also light room doesn't seem to have a means of resizing photos. Fortunately, MS power toys does it very well.
