This Mac App Will Convert Your Lightroom Presets to Camera Raw Presets in One Click

Using Lightroom Presets in Camera RAW has always been possible, but also a pain to set up. But not anymore, thanks to Preset Brewery.

While it may not be the most common issue for photographers to run into, it is possible that you have at some point or another wanted to utilize the creative looks made available by some of your Lightroom presets while processing an image in Photoshop. This would usually mean opening the image in Lightroom, applying the preset, and then using Lightroom to open the image in Photoshop. But what if you didn’t want to open Lightroom first?

You could convert your Lightroom presets to Camera RAW presets and just process the image complete in Photoshop. But unfortunately, Lightroom presets and Camera RAW presets are not interchangeable, despite being almost identical. So one must convert their Lightroom presets to Camera RAW presets and the process has always been convoluted and annoying. But that issue, at least for Mac users using macOS 10.10+, is a thing of the past thanks to an app called Preset Brewery. Continue reading…

Adobe’s New Photoshop CC Takes Everything to the Cloud

Photoshop_CC_totem_5in_300ppi

Today at the MAX 2013 conference, Adobe is announcing not only the new Creative Cloud Suite in a move away from the CS naming convention, but they’re also announcing loads of new features in Photoshop. We were able to take a sneak peak at this earlier on last week, and the new product seems like quite the powerhouse. First off, they’re incorporating nearly all of the major features introduced into Adobe Lightroom 5 Beta earlier this year: which means that Upright, Radial filters, and of course the Healing and Clone brush stays there. But they’re also including other newer features such as Intelligent Upsampling–which will not make images have extremely jagged and pixelated looks anymore. Users will also like the new Smart Sharpening feature which will create significantly less image noise when sharpening an image.

As reported earlier on as well, Camera Shake Reduction is also incorporated. Other features of interest include better integration with Behance, and Camera RAW adjustments being able to be added as layers.

The full rundown and screenshots are after the jump.

Lightroom 4.3 Release Candidate and Camera Raw 7.3 Beta Are Released

Just after having a heavy discussion about HiDPI here at The Phoblographer internally, Adobe goes ahead and releases Lightroom 4.3 Candidate. When a product is released as a candidate this just means that they feel that it is well tested but it would benefit from additional testing before being released to the masses. Along with HiDPI support they a squashing quite a few bugs.

Along with version 4.3 of Lightroom they are also releasing Camera Raw beta 7.3. The big cameras added this round are several canon point and shoots, the new Olympus Pens including the XZ-2, the new Pentax K-5 II and IIs and full support of the Nikon D600.

Adobe: Cinema DNG Initiative Retired from Adobe Labs

 

Today, the world lost a ton of potential in the video world. According to EOSHD on Twitter, Adobe has chosen to retire their Cinema DNG initiative. This was confirmed via their blog. To backtrack, DNG is Adobe’s raw format and stands for digital negative. It is essentially their attempt to standardize RAW formats vs having to have every company create their own; this isn’t really news to photographers. Cinema DNG is the same thing but for video. Instead of a camcorder shooting MPEGs (which are essentially a ton of JPEG images) it shot RAW.

Now why is this so significant? Well, the Black Magic Cinema Camera was all set to shoot Cinema DNG; and the cameras out there already do. Now that Adobe has decided to retire the standard, support for the format will be severely lacking; as well as more potential for the video industry at the budget level of the BMCC. In order to get RAW files, you’ll need to go for a RED camera.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out; maybe Adobe will realize that it was a giant mistake.
