The tree stands alone plus a word about auto tone

Do you use Lightroom to edit your photos? I do.  Well now they’ve gone and mucked around with the names.  What used to be Lightroom CC (Creative Cloud) is now Lightroom Classic (desktop computer) and Lightroom CC is now really cloud based and – in my opinion – meant more for those who edit on the run using a laptop or their phones.  Why Adobe had to go and change the names like that has confused and in some cases ticked off many of it’s users.  But anyway…

In the tone editing panel in LR right above the exposure slider is the auto button.  Click on that and as Adobe says – Auto uses Adobe Sensei technology to intelligently apply adjustments based on a photo’s light and color characteristics – well that sounds scientific! Adobe says you can start your editing process using this.  Initially I didn’t want to try it based upon my very early editing days experience with auto and white balance.  That did not work – lesson learned.  But one day I gave auto a go and I found that like anything else with editing it can be a hit or a miss depending on the photo and the finished look you are trying to achieve.  In other words… it can work sometimes.

This photo of the tree, which was in black and white yesterday, is the end result of starting off with auto tone, liking what it gave me and then finishing the edit with a few other quick adjustments.  As the saying goes, there’s more than one way to edit a photo.  What do you use to edit your photos with?

    I use Lightroom CC and have for a number of months. I like it and what it can do. Even though I don’t know the full use of it, I see no real reason to have Lightroom Classic. What I have works just fine.

  3. Great tree shot! I love a big solitary tree in an empty landscape.. I use photoshop – always have so it is impossible for me to change now – though when I get my next computer i am sure there willl be changes to the new app PS that i will have to load.. c
