    The profile option on Calibration is not available on my version of Lightroom?

  4. WOW, this "MATCH TOTAL EXPOSURES" is incredible! THANKS A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. m c says:

    the online preview does not work in lighroom CC. I do not have the option to connect to mobile and no makin publiv button. does it work diffrently in the cloud version?

  6. I love you! You have legitimately blown my mind!

  7. Thank you very much, you saved me a lot of time and ive learned some great features i didnt know exist

  8. Regarding sharing photos with a client via a synced connection. The client would need to create an Adobe account to access the collection, right. Does anyone have any practical experience using this process? I'd be mighty glad of some assistance.

  9. Regarding the second tip – Getting Good Colour – the camera's Picture Style doesn't affect a RAW (CR2 – Canon) file. As an example, my cameras' (Canon 1DX and 5D MkII) Picture Styles are set to monochrome (because it's my favoured way of 'seeing' the picture I'm taking) and when they're imported into LR they're full colour. I'd be glad to know if I'm missing something here – because Jamie's example is a CR2 file.

    I'm using Lightroom 3.0 (paid monthly) and my menu and options are different. Do I need to switch to a different version to take advantages of these tips?

    Matching exposure is the best tip. I have been always using Excel to calculate the exposure adjustment 🙂

    Mindblowing tips Jamie. I'm a commercial director that shoots stills for clients from time to time. I'm a photoshop man myself but you made me jump into Lightroom with more confidence. By the way, I bought some of your presets they are game-changers these presets save me so much time. These presets are a great way of articulating a potential look for a client in quick order.

    keep on making tutorials, please and thanks. I'm a fan of your photos also
