I can't tell you the number of people who asked me to develop my chrome profiles for newer cameras. Once again, I was really slow but here they are :)

New Chrome Camera Profiles for the newer Micro 4/3 cameras
Last Monday, I talked about my digital workflow. There is another tip I should mention about how I deal with photos in Lightroom: Import presets.
I use Adobe Lightroom version 5 as my digital assets management (DMA) and as my retouching tool. I go to Photoshop once or twice a year if I have a very specific demand that I can't do in Lightroom (Liquify for example). So here is my Lightroom workflow.
Another quick but useful Adobe Lightroom preset this week. You can apply a Develop Preset when importing files into Lightroom.
If I do something repeatedly on a computer, I always try to automate it. That is what computers are for. Lightroom is great for retouching and there are ways to automate repetitive tasks
This morning was the first time I missed a deadline since I started Mirrorless Journey. I usually post every Monday morning. Why did I miss? Because I spent all weekend (and most of last week) working on my Chrome camera profiles for many Micro 4/3 camera.
A quick tip to speed up your editing process.
Following on last week's rule of thirds, here is a tip for Lightroom users. When you use the Crop and Straighten Tool in Adobe Lightroom, you can display an Overlay. It displays lines over your image to help you crop it.
Ever heard of the TAT? Ever wondered what that little circle that looks like a target was?
Yay! New Version of Adobe Lightroom with support for many new cameras like the Panasonic LX100 :)
I'm a keyboard guy. I like to be fast when I edit and process my photos. Here are a few Lightroom shortcuts that I use in my workflow.
The most useful key in Lightroom: Alt (or Option on the Mac)
Do you want to know how to speed up your editing process?
You can now get free presets when you sign up on Mirrorless Journey.
First thing first: I do not intend to spam you with tons of emails. I want to build a list of people interested on what is published on this website. I will send you emails from time to time with news and promotions on Mirrorless Journey. The list is for myself only, I will not share it with other people or businesses.
What do you get? Some useful presets that I use on a regular basis for my work.
- 3 Sharpen Presets: Portrait, Landscape and Animals.
- 3 Vignette Presets: Light, Medium and Strong.
- A Preset to remove red/orange color cast from the skin tones.
All you have to do is sign up on the front page or just below here.
Another Lightroom import tip this week. Do you know you can backup your photos while importing them? Having multiple backups of your photos is one of the most important thing, especially for one-time events like a wedding. When I come back from a wedding, I can't sleep at night if I don't have three copies of my images. You never know when something can go wrong so be prepared and backup.
One quick way to do it is from the import panel in Lightroom. On the right side of the panel, under File Handling, click on Make a Second Copy To. It is a good idea to select an external drive for the destination. Once the import is complete, you have one copy in your computer and one copy on an external drive that you can bring with you and leave out of the house/office. Before erasing my cards, I will have a third copy of the files somewhere else.
