    How to scan slides

    For small quantities I have found the best results were a calibrated lightbox, Sony A7rII and a Canon 100mm f2.8L IS lens. I have created a black mask slide holder and use the camera tethered to a MacBook Pro. The results are impressive. Even better than the same slides scanned on a Flexscan...

    Lightroom Soft Proofing bug fixed with update

    Jeff Tranberry announced that Lightroom CC 2015 and ACR have been updated. I tested several files in Lightroom 5.7.1 and Lightroom CC 2015.4 and found that both represented the correct RGB values when using Soft Proofing to evaluate your images. There are several other updates to Lightroom...

    Light temperature measurement

    Best option is to buy a used Minolta Color Temperature meter. As few people use them anymore, you will probably find one for virtually nothing. They are very accurate and sophisticated. I have kept mine knowing that at some point I would need to determine exactly the color temperature of some...

    LR update did not fix Soft Proofing bug, again!

    Updated and found that the Soft Proofing bug that gives erroneous RGB values is still there. Only LR 5.7.1 or older will give you the proper RGB values. This is crucial for anyone who wants to print their images. Example, a grey patch which reads in PS as 153/150/149 will read the same in LR...

    Adobe Updates Lightroom to 6.3, Restores Old Import Screen

    Sadly they have not fixed the Soft Proofing bug. I tested LR 6.3/LR CC 2015.3 and LR 5.7.1. The only version that displays the RGB values correctly is LR 5.7.1. This bug was reported back in April 2015 and repeatedly mention in many different forums including Adobe's bug site. Must be a...

    Lightroom 6.3 still broken The bug that RGB value bug is still there. Just are not enough people using the histogram values to evaluate their files I guess. Our studio will stay with LR 5.7.1 as it is essential that we know if the files are going to meet our clients needs.

    Update on Lightroom 2015.2 / Lightroom 6.2 Release

    Update to LR CC 2015 2.1 and it still locks up when trying to quit the program. Attempting to quit out of LR causes it to going to a "Not Responding" loop. The only way out is to "Force Quit". This is the same behavior as LR CC 2015 2. This is occurring on a Mac OS 10.10.4. The Soft...
