Great course. Finally, I understand the sliders for sharpening/detail in Lightroom and how best to use them. Examples you chose clearly show how to reduce the noise in our images especially where we have to use a higher ISO to get the shot. Then how to use photoshop to enhance its younger brother, Lightroom. Looking forward to your next Lightroom Video. Thanks John Reply Phily Voorhorst December 31, 2020 Hi Steve. Great course. I came from using CS 6 to now latest Photoshop CC and Lr and your explanation helped a lot !! I could upgrade quite some pictures who had too much noise. Thanks Phily Reply Lucie Nice January 24, 2021 Thank you this was a great course! ☺️ Reply Roslyn Davey March 21, 2021 Great course Steve, so much info, I might take a while to get it but like you said, practise. Thanks Reply Jeffrey Neville June 12, 2021 Steve thanks a lot, I picked up that on a few of my photo’s I was too aggressive with masking thus reducing the sharpness a tad on my subject more than I wanted and went back in and fixed them ASAP. Honestly, I have taken several Photoshop Tutorials but have not used it enough to jump in to do what you demonstrated at this time but Rome wasn’t built in a day as they say. Thank you for the class, I enjoyed it very much. – Jeff Reply Ramon Gregory December 10, 2021 Excellent! nice one, that’s given me some great information to work with. Disregard previous communication on exporting images from PS – you show it here 🙂 Reply n1zb.radio May 21, 2022 Hi Steve, Wonderful course! I would recommend it to anyone. Now I need to practice my newly learned skills. Thank you for taking the time and putting together this course. Michael Reply Russell Wilson September 1, 2022 Another great course, Steve. I’ve learned a lot from all of your courses I’ve purchased, I think it’s five! I even reread the focusing and exposure 600 page courses (never thought I’d do that!) Thanks for being entertaining as well as informative. Concerning this course, you suggested going to photoshop first for noise reduction and then coming back to Lightroom to add contrast, dehaze. You processed the earlier second example in Lightroom after photoshop. Would the same argument apply to the first method you described of doing the noise reduction in Lightroom only if the noise is light? I have been doing noise reduction last, but removing the high frequency noise first and doing noise reduction before processing seems like a good idea in view of your explanation in the photoshop examples. Is this the case? Thanks for the wonderful teaching. Russ Reply Steve September 4, 2022 Thanks! Just using Lightroom it’s a little different. I’m not sure if there is much difference in applying NR first or not. Lightroom doesn’t really work the same way and, so far in my experience, I find I can add NR at any time with the same results. It’s only when you take it out of Lightroom and back (changing the original data) that it’s critical to do it in order. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
