Lightroom Classic Tips

Lightroom Preferences & Settings

RAW defaults in Lightroom Classic allows you to customize how a RAW file looks when it’s imported.

Change the RAW Profile from Adobe Default to Camera Settings, which keep the settings of the camera from which the raw image was taken. (Color Profile)

  1. Go to: Edit > Preferences (Win) or Lightroom > Preferences (macOS)
  2. Select the Presets tab
  3. From the Raw Defaults: Master drop-down, select “Camera Settings”

Lightroom Catalogs, Organizing, and Selecting Photos

Lightroom Classic does not allow the catalog to be created/stored on a network drive. It must be on a local internal or external directly connected USB/Firewire drive.

Enable “Automatically write changes into XMP” as a backup in case there’s a problem with the Catalog, your edits won’t be lost.
Go to: Edit > Catalog Settings > Metadata tab

Editing Photos using a Graphics Tablet / Pen Tablet

For photography, a small graphics/pen tablet works, as we’re usually working with a smaller area of the screen. Wacom isn’t the only maker of good graphics tablets. Do your research.
