Hi Greg - the video was great! Kathy had many of the same question that I have, so it was of much interest. I'm looking forward to part 2.

I am teaching myself Lightroom, using Kelby's book as a reference. Are you teaching any intermediate level classes? I could use the practical kind of advice you gave in the video.

Thanks,

Sue

I like this Pro-Am format. If Kathy can keep up expressing herself in layman's terms this will speak to many and encourage them to ask questions

hey Greg I have a question too..but anyone can answer if willing to help. I'm not able to open raw files of my canon eos 1100d in lightroom 3. I'm not sure what to do and how. Any info will be helpful. Thanks for the informational videos!

Check Adobe's website to be sure your camera is supported by LR3 and ACR.

Thanks Greg, yes my camera is listed on the adobe website under header "Supported cameras for the Camera Raw plug-in and Lightroom". Do I need some kind of plug-in? How can I get that?

Hi Greg, I use lightroom for editing. I keep colours bright and vibrant. But when i upload my edited picture on net, the colours appear very dull. what should i do?

Make sure your images are being exported in sRGB color space for the web or print, not ProPhoto RGB.

Greg,

I did a photography course last Christmas and the instructor got us all to change our DSLR's from sRGB to AdobeRGB. His reasoning was that you'd want to be using Adobe's colour space if you're going to be using their software e.g. Photoshop. Are you saying the opposite or is it (as I understand the thrust of your comment) that sRGB is best for publishing on the web.

If you are shooting RAW (as you should be) that choice has no effect on your files. It does however affect the file naming on Nikon cameras. My cameras are all set on sRGB.

I have been shooting raw on my DSLR almost since day 1 and understand why. My Sony also changes the file naming when using AdobeRGB. I had a good read of my manual and it appears to have an effect on JPG's.

What I can glean from here is that colour space is more important when editing rather than when taking photos. I think I'll go back to sRGB for now and see it's effect (if any).

Thanks :o)

BTW his reason is bogus too. The main 3 profiles are universal (sRGB, Adobe 98 and ProPhoto RGB) in all decent photo editing software for years and years. Sounds like he was just blowing smoke...
