  • Lightroom WB selector question:

    I have picked a RAW image in the Lightroom Development module. I choose the white balance selector and want this raw file to have the same WB as a tif file next to it. However, the WB picker/selector doesn't allow me to go down to the filmstrip and click a point in the tif file.
    Is there a workaround for this? Of course sync settings doesn't work here because the tif file wb is zero and zero.
    thanks in advance.

    Re: Lightroom WB selector question:

    Not sure I understand what you are asking. But let me say, one image is raw, the other rendered and even if you could specify the same value, that doesn’t mean it will match! More than likely dissimilar values will produce a match, again due to the vast differences in the two images. LR treats raws and rendered images differently (you can see the options change as you click on one, then the other). Apples and oranges.

      Unless they were both shot under the same lighting conditions, you don't want both to have the same white balance.

      Since you have both images and can easily compare, I would just manually adjust the RAW until it matches the TIF.

        Ok. I have a Guy Gowan color temperature fixer photoshop action that translates the image into a series of 10 squares that reflect the color cast of the image. You save this file and should be able to use square 4,5 or 6 as a reference. By wb picker clicking one of these squares you can colorcorrect the rawfile. It works in Aperture (Gowan uses Aperture). I am trying to figure a way to do the same in LR. Hence my question.

          None of the values from Photoshop (or anything other than ACR or LR) will correlate values wise. That’s due for a number of reasons, one being any Kelvin value is a range of colors, next, the processing in ACR/LR is totally different from Photoshop.

            You are right. So is there a way to make the WB picker work outside the selected image in the Development module?

              Nope, afraid not.

                Shame. I find it odd that the Guy develops a commercial action that only works if you happen to be an Aperture user also. Well well..

                Thanks for your answer Andrew.

                  Using Lightroom instead of the RAW converter
                  by ir0nma1den
                  I'm trying to absorb as much as possible off of you people so I can get a solid workflow going.

                  Currently I use Lightroom(3) as a photomanagment program where I do a ghetto color correction job, adjust exposure, play with curves, and then I edit in photoshop as a smart object.

                  Lightroom Export setup
                  by testerke
                  Hello,

                  I use photoshop and lightroom too. Usually I do changes in lightroom and export the file to edit in PS. My photoshop, monitor and lightroom are calibrated to Adobe rgb 1998.
                  The problem is the export option. I use the "Original" file option and with this I can still...

                  I recently downloaded the Lightroom trial, and I have to admit, i am impressed. I figurd out a work flow that worked for me in a matter of a couple of hours.

                  Here is my problem. I worked on my RAW photos, made crops, adjustments, etc and exported to JPEGS to post, no issues. I closed...

                  a quick question about lightroom
                  by djslyda
                  hi, i have been admiring some of the work on flickr by guys that say stuff like "90% lightroom 10%photoshop" (http://flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2393432141/) what can you do on lightroom that you cannot on photoshop?
                  thanx!

                  preserving LR keywords...PS image Processor
                  by Nasturtium
                  I've been running large batches of very high ISO RAW files through the Noiseware...which saves a TIFF file...this seems to strip off the EXIF data :-(

                  I'd like to keep keywords written to the RAW file in Lightroom

                  Can a keyword be preserved in a TIFF file?
