  11. Hey I have a question I was wondering if anyone could help.. I’m new to
    using Lightroom 4 .. My question is evertime I edit a pic it looks awesome
    but when I save it and upload it to facebook or print them the people look
    a little redish like they have a sunburn .. What might I be doing wrong
    that this is happening. . When I view it in my gallery they look fine.
    Please help

  12. LOL, if they catch you and take you to court then you can go to jail. I
    could not survive in jail in my country because there are limited jails so
    they put minor criminals in with hardcore insane monsters.

  14. if you print out and they are reddish, then its wrong monitor/printer
    settings.and facebook reduces the quality of images btw. Same wierd colour
    shifts happen if you open a photoshop/lightroom edited image in some
    Microsoft Viewer it also looks different then in those adobe programs.

  17. I have controls for Exposure but not “Recovery,” “Fill Light” and “Blacks”
    right beneath. It goes straight from Exposure to Contrast. What’s up with
    my Lightroom? Is it a preferences thing?

  24. You’re using Lightroom 4. He is using Lightroom 3 in the video. In
    Lightroom 4, they now have Highlights (which does a better job at adjusting
    only the highlights instead of the overall “recovery”) and Shadows (which
    does a better job at adjusting only the shadows instead of the overall
    black or “Fill Light”)
