STEP #1 DOWNLOAD r

DOWNLOAD LIGHTROOM MOBILE APP & SIGN UP

 

STEP #2 TRANSFERRING FILES

WHEN TRANSFERRING THE FILES FROM DESKTOP TO MOBILE

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AIRDROP TURNED ON YOUR DESKTOP & MOBILE.

FOR 10S:

IN "DOWNLOADS" ON YOUR DESKTOP OPEN THE ZIP FOLDER.

OPEN "FILES

RIGHT CLICK - SHARE - AIRDROP - SELECT YOUR MOBILE

ALL IMAGES WILL NOW BE SAVED TO YOUR PHOTOS.

(NOTE IMAGES MAY APPEAR BLANK ON YOUR CAMERA ROLL

BUT ONCE IN LIGHTROOM THEY WILL APPEAR).

FOR ALL OTHER MOBILE DEVICES:

UPLOAD ALL FILES TO A CLOUD ACCOUNT.

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND "DROPBOX".

DNG

OPEN THE DROPBOX APP ON YOUR PHONE AND EXPORT NEWLY ADDED DNG FILES

INDIVIDUALLY TO YOUR CAMERA ROLL. FILES SHOULD ALL NOW BE SAVED IN YOUR

CAMERA ROLL .

(NOTE IMAGES MAY APPEAR BLANK ON CAMERA ROLL BUT WILL APPEAR ONCE LOADED

IN LIGHTROOM).

OR

YOU CAN EMAIL THE FILES TO YOURSELF AND DOWNLOAD TO YOUR CAMERA ROLL

HOWEVER THE IMAGE SIZES ARE EXTREMELY LARGE SO THIS PROCESS WOULD TAKE

A LONG TIME.

STEP #4 CREATING

CLICK "CREATE PRESET".

 

STEP #5 NAMING

PRESETS

CLICK THE FOLLOWING:

PRESET NAME - NAME THE PRESET ACCORDING TO THE IMAGE EG "SELFIE

GAME 1" NAME "SG 1"

PRESET GROUPS - CLICK THE DROP DOWN "USER PRESETS"

CLICK "CREATE NEW PRESET GROUP" AND NAME I.

REPEAT THIS PROCESS FOR EACH IMAGE UNTIL ALL ARE SAVED AND THAT'S IT!!

NOW ALL THAT'S LEFT TO DO IS CREATE SOME MAGIC! SIMPLY PICK A PHOTO, HIT

PRESETS AND HAVE A PLAY!

PLEASE NOTE LIGHTING/COLOURING IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN EDITING PICS SO

ALWAYS PLAY WITH SLIDERS IF THE IMAGE ISN'T HOW YOU WANT WITH ONE

CLICK!

 

AFTER APPLYING THE PRESET, SIMPLY SLIDE THE EXPOSURE BAR UP OR

DOWN TO ACHIEVE THE RIGHT LIGHTING. LOCATED UNDER "LIGHT".

CONTRAST

ADJUST THE DARKER PARTS OF THE PHOTO BY MOVING THE SLIDER UP

OR DOWN TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK YOU LOVE. LOCATED UNDER "LIGHT".

TEMP

PHOTOS VARY SO MUCH WITH LIGHTING EG MORNING GLOWS, RAINBOW

SUNSETS, GLOOMY DAYS. A QUICK FIX TO WARM OR COOL OFF YOUR

IMAGE IS VIA THE WB "TEMP" SLIDER LOCATED UNDER "COLOUR".

VIBRANCE

WE RECOMMEND USING "VIBRANCE" LOCATED UNDER "LIGHT" INSTEAD

OF THE 'SATURATION' SLIDER. IT IS A LESS AGGRESSIVE VERSION OF

SATURATION TO MELLOW OUT YOUR COLOURS OR MAKE THEM POP.

SKIN TONE

THE SIMPLEST WAY TO ADJUST SKIN TONE IS VIA THE HSUCOLOUR

MODULE (CLICK "COLOUR" THEN "MIX"

WE ALWAYS PLAY AROUND WITH THE "LUMINANCE" & "SATURATION" OF

ORANGE, THIS IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING AS EVERYONE HAS A

DIFFERENT SKIN TONE AND LIGHTING IS ALWAYS A MAJOR FACTOR.

SEE IMAGE

HOT TIP! PLAY WITH AQUA & BLUE "LUMINANCE" & "HUE" SLIDERS TO

MAKE THOSE OCEANS & SKIES POP!

THANKS AGAIN & CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR TRANSFORMATIONS BBS!
