Video: How to import into Lightroom directly from a Memory Card on iPAD OS

One of the new features of iPadOS that was announced was the ability to import images directly into apps from attached storage, without having to go through the camera roll. Unfortunately not many apps have been updated to take advantage of this yet, including Lightroom. However, there is a pretty simple work around and in this video I show you what to do.

Canon to add 24p to Recently Released Cameras via Firmware

A little while ago I wrote a post on how I couldn’t understand Canon’s decision to remove 24p from their newest cameras. 24p is considered a standard around the world, and many of Canon’s cameras became so popular for video precisely because they allowed users to shoot in 24p, so it was inexplicable to me that the company had chosen to remove such a key feature. I wasn’t the only one, and there was a wide and loud backlash from users. Well, Canon listened, and has announced that it would be adding 24p to several recently released cameras via firmware.

I Chimp and I’m Proud

I have a secret. I little secret that I’ve kept for so long. I’m so ashamed and the guilt is tearing me apart. I just have to come clean… Actually, none of that is really true. It’s not really a secret and I’m neither ashamed nor do I feel guilty. You see, when I’m taking photos, I check the shots on my camera’s screen. There, I said it! I’m one of those people. I’m a chimper. And I couldn’t care less.

Two Ways to Automatically Send Images from Lightroom (or Capture One) into Apple Photos

If you’re on a Mac and you want to send your finished images from Lightroom (or Capture One) to Apple Photos, to sync to your devices for example, then you can do it manually by exporting from one application and importing into the other. This can be a bit tedious, but there are also some ways you can automate the process. This involves exporting to a folder in the finder from Lightroom or capture One, and having that automatically import into Photos.

Capture One Quick Tip: Simulate Lightroom’s “Grid” Mode Keyboard Shortcut

This is a really specific and kind of nerdy tip, but I’ve found that this helps me speed up my workflow in Capture One considerably. If you’re used to Lightroom, you may be used to switching between the grid and develop modules using the “G” and “D” keys. I do this all the time, when I’m working on a project, and I want to jump to different Images. I find it easier than scrolling up and down the film strip at the bottom of the develop module. To do this in Capture One, you show and hide the viewer. There is a keyboard shortcut for this already, but it’s hard to remember and physically awkward to press. Luckily it’s easy to change.

A Guide to All of My Guides! (Fuji & Sony Guides & Future Plans)

Over the past few years, the one topic I’ve covered more than any other here on the blog, and in published form, is the subject of Processing Fuji Raw files. I’ve published several eBooks about Processing Fuji raw files in various software. I’ve also written a guide on how to get the best out of processing Sony A6000 files in Lightroom. Over the past few months I’ve updated all of my current Fuji guides so that they are up to date for 2019. This included free updates to three of the guides, and one new edition. The exception is my old Iridient Developer guide, which I will no longer be supporting (more on that below)

How to create a Polariser effect in Capture One

Using a polariser to enhance the blues in your image was probably one of the first filters that I ever used when learning photography. You can also match this effect in software, although you can’t easily replicate a polariser’s other feature which is to cut down on reflections. In Capture One, the obvious way to replicate a polariser is to use the colour editor tool, however, it’s not as straight forward as it seems. In this short video I show you how to create a polariser effect and save it for reuse.

Coming Soon: T-Pan for Capture One

I’m working on the long process of converting some of my most popular Lightroom presets over to Capture One, and with that in mind, I’ll soon be launching my next set of Style Packs: T-Neg for Capture One. This is based on the Lightroom pack of the same name, and it’s probably one of my two most popular sets. T-Pan is based on black and white film, and was created by using scanned film as a reference.
