Question about Camera to Print and Screen video
« on: June 26, 2015, 09:33:26 am »

I just bought this video, not remembering that it was released in 2011. Jeff and Michael talk about LR 4 and the R3000 is a new printer - boy, things move fast. Well, I'm working with Lr CC 2015 although I do have an R3000.

What I wonder is whether there are any updates planned to this set of videos. Lots of stuff has stayed the same, but lots has changed, especially around soft-proofing, which I just was watching.

Using an almost five year old tutorial seems a bit problematic.

All best,

Marco

I'm not really sure enough has changed to make us want to redo the whole series...We just released the LR CC/6 video tutorial this week which should cover the gap from LR 4 to CC/6. With regards to ACR & Photoshop what's in LR CC/6 is also in ACR so the crossover would be covered. There's not really much new for photographers in the recent Photoshop releases. In terms of the majority of the CTPS videos, as it relates to printing, nothing has fundamentally changed, just the modal numbers of the printers.

I suspect you are right that not enough has changed to warrant a complete re-do of the video. But as someone who has been striving for over a decade to reach the level of proficiency I see on Lu-La every day in one way or another, it just seems hard for me to extrapolate from how the video describes techniques to what I know of the current versions of Lightroom and Photoshop. The discussions of soft proofing are a good example. Perhaps this is not as much as a problem for the more technically-minded, and maybe I simply need to work harder - not a bad thing - but some judicious updating would be quite helpful for me.

And, by the way, thanks for the hard work, the rigor, the detail, and commitment to the craft.

I have not re-watched the tutorials today but from what I can remember they were really about the  best practice for getting good images and concepts ( for example, soft proofing  mentioned above, monitor calibration etc. ) rather than the actual technical aspects of using specific software moving this slider or that slider.

Looking through the topics perhaps the only new feature in Lightroom is being able to merge multiple images for HDR without a round trip to Photoshop.
But  that is covered in the new LR video tutorial.

OK, I think I was wrong! I've just finished watching the update to the Lightroom tutorial - the CC/6 changes. Coupled with the Camera to Print and Screen, all of my questions were addressed. And for the price, it was a great way to, in effect, update both of these.

So, thanks for the (as usual) great info!

All best,

Marco

Thanks for that...that was our thought as well. If anything happens in the printing industry, we'll take a look, but it's pretty mature at this point with only incremental improvements with nothing new in color management (sadly).
