Adobe Lightroom is a good post processing tool, however, you don’t need to be so complacent as it has its own way to destroy your preset files. Most experts suggest that you should always update yourself about the latest news, trends and other significant details about Lightroom to make sure you’re doing the right thing. Here are some mistakes that you should avoid when dealing with images in Lightroom.
Combining Collections and Catalogs
Adobe Lightroom has a lot of terminologies and some of it are very confusing. Most beginners tend to mix up and combine catalog and collections. They were unable to understand that the catalog option in Lightroom is the main database of images while you can only create and sort files in Lightroom collections.
Losing significant files
One of the disadvantages of Lightroom and I guess the most frustrating part is losing important files without you knowing it. It’s always best that you regularly check your files to avoid losing track of it. In addition, you can back-up significant files on your desktop storage for safe keeping.
Manual adding of presets
There are two ways of adding presets to Lightroom. However, most beginners choose to add presets manually as they want to have a smooth and calm process. They didn’t realize that aside from the fact that they’re wasting a lot of time, they are also confusing their self. Adding presets to Lightroom can be as easy as applying presets to hundreds of images at once.
Losing exported files
While importing images into Lightroom is the starting point, exporting files is the end point of the entire process. Sometimes, Adobe Lightroom has a bad habit of losing exported files and saving only the original raw file. Most Lightroom professionals recommend that you should be very careful in saving edited images to avoid losing it in the end.
