Hi and welcome to photography tips in
today’s episode. I’ll give you five tricks about Lightroom My name is Benjamin Jaworskyj, I’m an
adventure photographer from Germany getting it all on YouTube and in this
video we have five nice tricks in Adobe Lightroom that you even don’t know when
you use Lightroom quite often. Tip number one. When you’re editing photos on a
small screen like I do now on a laptop you have all those disturbing buttons
sliders and other things in the way you main editing pictures just as big as
navigate a picture on the left side. So what can you do? You can now push every
arrow button in each corner and make things invisible or make them visible
again but you can also use a shortcut and my favorite shortcut is Shift and
Tap simultaneously you push it together and everything disappears. Except
the picture in the middle and if you need the sliders back just go to the
right side click on the arrow and all your sliders are back and now you can
edit the photo on the big screen which is actually a small screen. Tip number two have you ever pressed the alt button during your development just give it a
try with any slider push the alt button for example with the whites and then a
black screen will appear but if you slide it to the left or to the right you
might see that oh there comes a red and then comes white and some bluish and
some yellowish kind of things and that shows you when you picture is
overexposed. As soon as the white thing appears in the picture your picture is
overexposed you can also see it there in the right corner and it shows you in
your picture where something might now here get overexposed and as soon as it’s
white it is totally overexposed and you don’t have any information yet it’s just
pure white you can do it with the white button, you can do it with the exposure
button for example go to the right go to the left if something is very
overexposed you can see if you can recreate all the highlights or anything.
You can do it with sharpening just give it a try hit the alt button and push any
slider you will see awesome things. Tip number three.
Sometimes when you’re editing your photos you want to know how the before
picture actually looked there’s a nice trick for that just hit the Y button and
the before picture appears on the left side and it’s also written down here on
the top before and after and it’s called the Y button because everybody wants to
know why why did you make me look so saturated and I’m not sure and blah blah
blah whatever. Just hit the shift button with the Y button together and you get a
different view and just hit the awesome alt button together with the Y button
and you get an other awesome before-and-after view and just hit the Y
button again and the Y button again and then it’s all back again nice and
saturated and colorful and I love it. Tip number four. Have you ever tried to edit
your photos with different backgrounds or just view your pictures with
different backgrounds then give it a try. Just hit the right button of your mouse
or your trackpad right next to the picture and then you
can choose between for example of white or for example also black other gray
tones when you watch for example a night photography picture on a black
background it might appear that your black is not actually black in the
picture but kind of greyish. You can now adjust the picture and get a better
overview of your awesome photography pictures. Or just put it back on medium
grey and if you just want to put your picture on the big screen with a black
background you can just hit the F button and it says full screen and now you have
a nice full screen with black background. And tip number five. Have you ever
noticed that when you put your picture from your SD card into Lightroom or into
Photoshop that your pictures are kind of grayish that might be because of Adobe
standard it’s a picture profile and you might have activated a different picture
profile inside your camera and you always thought oh it’s just on the jpg
but it can be activated on the raw as well. Just switch from camera profile
Adobe standard to your camera profile that you’ve already chosen while taking
the shot for example I in that situation took landscape with a Sony camera if you
have for example a Canon camera you have different presets here you can take
portrait as well or standard which I usually take because not that colorful
but different and not that greyish from Adobe standard. Adobe standard is great
for for example nice-guy photography because it’s not that oversaturated but
in most situations I take camera standard or camera landscape and it’s
one thing I do after I imported photos into Lightroom. Those were five awesome
