    Hello. You can adjust the brush sizes by using the bracketing keys located right next to the letter “P”. If you’re using a Mac, then you can slide two fingers up and down on your mouse or trackpad. Hope this helps!

    How you change the size of the circle when you are working with a brush but with the keyboard???

    Very Interesting

    It’s funny that a lot of people who own Macs don’t know that they can actually record on screen using Quicktime. It allows you to recored at 1080p. I also use my zoom H1 for the audio.

    Ya you are right nd i used to click on RAW only before, but it made me lazy you knw just forget the exposure triangle click it and i will fix it in LR .
    But with JPEG you have to get things perfect i mean at the learning stage JPEG is good just to know the diffrent exposure settings and to play with the Manual stuff
    But ya i shoot Raw when some details are involved . But thats why i asked you to make a tutorial on JPEG landscapes cuz people have P&S camera and only JPEG , might be good for them

  12. VladimirLadev says:

    Thank you very much for the reply, I know camera Raw that is why I said that untill CS6 comes out Lightroom will have the edge over Ps. Is there a way to go from PS to lightroom I think you can save the raw file back to Raw when done retouching.

  13. KreativeVueTV says:

    You can export any image from lightroom into photoshop, which will create a copy for you there, while retaining any adjustments you’ve made in lightroom. Photoshop has its equivalent of Lightroom’s post tools available called “Camera RAW”. If you open up RAW files in photoshop, it should automatically open up Camera RAW.

  14. KreativeVueTV says:

    Thanks for watching and the feedback, I will look into the audio.

  15. KreativeVueTV says:

    Hello and thank you for watching my vid! I will see about putting together a vid on that subject since I’ve gotten a few similar requests. I will leave you with this food for thought…When shooting landscapes, I would strongly suggest shooting RAW as this is your insurance. Your ability to manipulate colors, light, shadows is much greater as RAW carries much more information. RAW give you that assurance that if it doesn’t come out the way you expected, you can always fix it later. Thx again!

  16. KreativeVueTV says:

    I’ll have to side with @himanshucisco1, as both have their purposes. Lightroom affords you the ability to organize your photo library as well as provide you with very powerful editing tools. However true, this does not eliminate the need to use photoshop, as Lightroom does have its limits. Photoshop does have it’s “Lightroom” equivalent, which is called “Camera RAW”. This will essentially give you the same tools as Lightroom. Again, Lightroom combines the best of 2 worlds.
