Learn Lightroom 2.0 with D65

Adobe released Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.0 beta which features enhancements such as dual-monitor support and localized dodge and burn corrections. It is the first Adobe application to support 64-bit for Mac OS X 10.5 Intel Macs and Microsoft Vista 64-bit operating systems.

We are now teaching the transition to 2.0 and all the features.

Do you want to quickly process your files and have them look awesome?
Do you want to be able to find any image in a blink of an eye?
Are you keywording properly and using metadata to your advantage?
Do your prints look the way you want? Can you convert to CMYK?
Wondering how to set up a real archive?
Are you working in 16-bit and using ProPhoto?
Can you extend the dynamic range of an image?
Is your computer optimized for workflow, or is it running slow?
Would you like to blow your clients away with quality they rarely see?

If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions, then D65 is THE Workshop for you.

UPDIG Releases Version 2.0 Guidelines http://photoshopnews.com/2006/11/08/updig-releases-version-20-guidelines/ http://photoshopnews.com/2006/11/08/updig-releases-version-20-guidelines/#comments Wed, 08 Nov 2006 15:46:11 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/2006/11/08/updig-releases-version-20-guidelines/ The Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidlines (UPDIG) working group has announced the release of version 2.0 of their guidelines for the delivery of digital photographs.

Who We Are: The UPDIG Working Group is an ad-hoc industry consortium of nonprofit associations, digital imaging professionals and allied trade groups and manufacturers, dedicated to promoting worldwide standards in the commercial application of digital imaging.

Vision Statement: Our industry is in a state of great change, and established ways of making and working with photographs have been supplanted by entirely new ones. The enormous capabilities and efficiencies of digital capture and delivery have revolutionized the image marketplace at an astounding rate. But they have also created gaps in creative and quality control that have frequently led to confusion, inequities, loss of quality, and unnecessary expense. We recognize the need for worldwide imaging quality and delivery standards that will facilitate reliable and repeatable image reproduction

The work-product of the film-based photographer — the transparency or print — has served as the capture and storage medium, as well as the primary vehicle for color/colour management throughout the entire supply chain. The lack of the transparency or reference print has left a void in the image-quality control chain that can only be filled by integrated color/colour management according to accepted ICC workflows.

As the foundation of the image supply chain, it is essential that photographers establish and adhere to the best practices of color/colour management. Further, it is essential that entire imaging supply chain implement these practices. We plan to identify terminology and workflow for each stage of image creation and delivery. Through these guidelines, we will ensure that color / colour will be as accurate as possible, enhancing creative control and economic efficiency

It’s important to note here that integrated color/colour management (ICC / ICM) is a mature, proven technology that is already used by many imaging professionals. This effort is to ensure that the adoptation of these best practices will happen as quickly and easily as possible.

Mission Statement: Our mission is to bring the creators, distributors, customers, and other vendors in the imaging trades together to identify and promote digital imaging standards. We will identify a delivery protocol that promotes creative and quality control, and builds value and efficiency.

Version 2.0 – The Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines

These 12 guidelines — provided as a Quick Guide plus an in-depth Complete Guide — aim to clarify the issues affecting accurate reproduction and management of digital image files. Although they largely reflect a photographer’s perspective, anyone working with digital images should find them useful. The guidelines have three primary goals:

  • Digital images should look the same as they transfer between devices, platforms and vendors.
  • Digital images should be prepared in the correct resolution, at the correct size, for the device(s) on which they will be viewed or printed.
  • Digital images should have metadata embedded that conforms to the IPTC standards, thereby making the images searchable, providing usage and contact information, and stating their creators or copyright owners.

Files For Downloading:
The PDF of the UPDIG Guidelines for desktop printing (1.2 MB)
The PDF of the UPDIG Guidelines for offset printing (2.2 MB)

Historians can request version 1 by writing to info@updig.org.

How to Join: For access to the discussion forum for this initiative, please contact UPDIG and indicate the trade organization or group that you are representing.

Deke Does Raw http://photoshopnews.com/2006/11/07/deke-does-raw/ http://photoshopnews.com/2006/11/07/deke-does-raw/#comments Wed, 08 Nov 2006 04:35:21 +0000 PSN Editorial Staff http://photoshopnews.com/2006/11/07/deke-does-raw/ lynda.com Announces Release of Photoshop CS2: Mastering Camera Raw In-Depth Overview of Top Database Application’s New Features

Press Release: In the world of digital photography, the raw image is the digital equivalent of a large-format negative. Working with these “digital negatives” allows photographers to have greater artistic control and flexibility during the image-editing process, while still maintaining the integrity of the original raw file. In Photoshop CS2: Mastering Camera Raw, best-selling author Deke McClelland teaches the key principles and techniques for mastering raw photography using the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in.

“The future of digital photography lies in the raw format. As cameras and computers become powerful enough to support this highest-resolution format, digital photographers will need to learn new skills. There’s no better guide to this new frontier than best-selling Photoshop author Deke McClelland,” says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.

Camera Raw was released by Adobe in February 2003. According to Adobe, this powerful plug-in has been updated to support more cameras and include more features, and is available as part of Adobe Photoshop CS2.

Anyone with an Internet connection can access Photoshop CS2: Mastering Camera Raw by subscribing to lynda.com’s Online Training Library™. A separate DVD version of Photoshop CS2: Mastering Camera Raw is scheduled to be released soon.

Project: Photoshop Lightroom Report http://photoshopnews.com/2006/10/09/project-photoshop-lightroom-report/ http://photoshopnews.com/2006/10/09/project-photoshop-lightroom-report/#comments Mon, 09 Oct 2006 19:04:59 +0000 Jeff Schewe http://photoshopnews.com/2006/10/09/project-photoshop-lightroom-report/ projectlr.jpg

Project: Photoshop Lightroom with photographer Colin Finlay and Adobe’s Julieanne Kost recently visited the College of DuPage in suburban Chicago. Over the course of two days, students and faculty heard a lecture by Finlay in which he shared his career as a photographer and Adobe’s Senior Evangelist Julieanne Kost, provided students with in-depth seminars on using Photoshop and Lightroom to support a digital workflow.

The second day also comprised a small group of photo students participating with Finlay in a photo shooting assignment. Students selected images from this assignment to be placed into a portfolio and then uploaded to the Project: Photoshop Lightroom site for sharing with the extended community.

Since it was in my general neck of the woods, I drove out to the college to see what was going on (and shoot some snaps).

The College of DuPage is one of the best junior colleges in the Chicago metropoliton area for photography and design. The Photoshop/Lightroom lectures were held in the Student Resource Center.

The Student Resource Center is an impressive complex that harbors student lounges, computer centers and what used to be called the “Student Union” back when I was in college.

American PHOTO On Campus supplied free copies with a spread on Colin Finlay.

While I was at the college, Colin was running around Chicago with students shooting. Here’s Colin “laying down on the job” shooting under “The Bean” in Chicago’s Millenium Park. Photo above: © 2006 Joel Lamplough

Here’s a shot of the scene reflected in the Bean. Photo above: © 2006 Joel Lamplough

Colin also led the students into a local Chicago neighborhood-Albany Park to capture images radically different than from the highly commercial (and touristy) images of Millennium Park. In fact, that was the assignment-The Two Sides of Chicago. Photo above: © 2006 Jay Kristensen

Back at the school, Julieanne was giving a lecture on both Photoshop and Lightroom. The lectures were free and open to the public (which is how I got to sneak in).

Julieanne in front of the crowd demoing Lightroom.

As might be expected, there were a lot of questions regarding Lightroom, Photoshop and how the two apps will coexist in the Adobe lineup of apps.

Crowd shot, low and wide angle (hey, that’s my style).

Julieanne likes to talk with her hands…

…and apparently the audience caught the practice.

Some of the students (ok and the instructors as well) followed along on their laptops.

Julieanne never fails to mention her excellent video tutorials available at Software Cinema.

Julieanne took time at the end of the lecture to talk with attendees and autograph copies of her book Window Seat The Art of Digital Photography and Creative Thinking.

Julieanne also had time to do a little playing as the crew wrapped up.

Then Julieanne called Colin to find out where he was. Seems Colin (and the location scout) didn’t anticipate Chicago’s heavy traffic coming out to the College of DuPage on a Friday afternoon-hey, it’s about half way to Denver ya know. The crew moved over to the Art Center building where the photo and digital imaging facilities are located.

One of the digital imaging labs – no hamburgers allowed (left). Julieanne preps the student’s computers with a copy of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

The students arrive…

…followed by Colin (left). How did the students keep up the energy to shoot all day? Candy bars!

Julieanne and Colin go over the process of launching Lightroom and importing thier images.

The students worked with Lightroom while Colin talked about what the assignment involved.

Since I was shooting the students, some of them shot back.

Julieanne does her Vanna White imitation pointing to the screen.

Julieanne pauses to listen to a question.

Julieanne stalked the students while they were working to make sure everybody was up to speed.

Here she helps one of the students with the finer points of Lightroom.

Julieanne had some notes prepared to aid the students process their images and select them for the show.

Colin goes over the image selections with the students.

In the meantime, a call is made for PIZZA…

Students used the Develop module of Lightroom to prep their images for submission.

One of the real advantages of a classroom situation is the ability to work with the students on the project.

Julieanne looks at a student’s work as other students look on.

Colin also worked with the students and explained how he does selection editing.

Once the students collected their favorite “6″ images, Julieanne calls out for “FOCUS” (to get the student’s attention) and explains the process of exporting their images to USB drives for submission.

A sample selection of 6 images.

Then it was off for pizza!

Chicago is known for really good pizza (much better than in New York or California).

We had thin crust and deep dish pizza.

The deep dish pizza always provides a challenge.

While eating we all discussed the project.

Back in the lab, Colin and Julieanne led the class in critiques.

Lightroom makes it easy to see individual images for review…

…and pop over to compare to look at all 6 images. The goal was to have the class edit down to just 3 representative images from each student. Ok, one guy got 4 in because the class couldn’t knock off that 4th image. But the slideshow of the student’s work was impressive. You can also see the previous students’ work from earlier events.

Colin wraps up the event-this one wasn’t so bad, I think everybody got out before 9:00PM.

The students gather their stuff (left) as Julieanne and Colin pose for pictures.

Colin handed out autographed copies of the Project Photoshop Lightroom posters as well as Lightroom T-shirts.

Colin and Julieanne also autographed books for those students who had purchased them.

Then it was down to editing to select the three “representative images” to put up on the web site and upload the final student show.

The students shot all day, edited all night and the show was posted by Saturday morning (about noon San Jose time-that’s where the tech crew was located).

A final check of the facilities…

…and then we left. Some of us went out to Joe’s Crab Shack for a load of crab. Colin and Lou were pretty beat and they hightailed it back to their hotel as they had an early flight out the next morning.

Next up on the scheduale is the Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography starting today. Check the Project: Photoshop Lightroom schedule for upcoming schools.

Editor’s Note: The images in this story are all ©2006 by Jeff Schewe (except where noted). The images were shot with a Canon Digital Rebel and processed through Lightroom to achieve the B&W processed files for the story.
