Having discussed to death the merits and flaws of various formats, brands, bodies, lenses etc the one thing I have not really delved into in any sensible way is editing. So far I edit as I please – in Lightroom – and use plug ins such as The Nik Collection and presets from the Net.
But, now I would like to be able to set up generic presets that I can use to batch process. Right now a single colour user preset and a mono preset would be great.
After that……well, I will concentrate on that later.
I have downloaded a trial version of Photoshop CC as I have read that it gives much greater control than LR, but so far I am clueless.
It’s not so easy. Unless the exposure is identical on each shot there will be differences, some will just need tweaking, others need greater adjustments. But I will carry on until i find a happy medium with one/either/both editing suites.
The one thing frustrating about LR is that the sharpening sliders are not as particular as I would like. It would be beneficial to be able to sharpen certain areas (eyes, lips) without adding overall sharpening to the entire image.
Oh, I have to say, damn those Fuji and Nikon files for sheer IQ!!!
