Is There a Color Cast in Your Raw Capture?

It’s been nearly four years since our last posting on how to correct a color cast. And, although correcting color cast in Lightroom hasn’t changed much over the years, Adobe has done significant, “under the hood” improvements with machine learning. So, it’s time for a refresh and we’re adding our free PDF download, “How to Fix a Color Cast” for reference.

Create a 2020 Copyright Preset for Lightroom

Whether it’s friends and family or submitted images to contests and publishers, you don’t need to be a professional to consider embedding a copyright.

So, we looked for a current PDF of the Lightroom Classic Manual and couldn’t find one!

Lightroom (both versions) has an official URL for user manuals. But there hasn’t been a PDF Lightroom Classic Manual download available for quite some time.
