    Thanks for the info and the efforts. I have a suggestion with regard to the
    grass color. I usually use HSL/COLOR/B&W panel and choose COLOR to edit any
    individual color in the photo separately without affecting other colors in
    the photo. I hope this is helpful.

    Hey I have a question. . When I edit my pics they look amazing.. But when I
    post them on Facebook they came out really redish.. Like my subjects skin
    comes out like they have a sunburn. Do u have any ideas of what I might be
    doing wrong?

    Nathank Jeffers, How did you get so many options from your WB pulldown?
    Mine only has 3. As Shot, Custom, and Auto.

  18. Nathan Jeffers says:

    It sounds like you’re shooting in jpeg (whereas I’m shooting in RAW).
    Google “jpeg vs. raw” to get a good explanation. To put it in very simple
    terms – RAW gives you more options than JPEG when you come to the editing
    process, but it’s comes at the cost of larger files.

    Thanks for the video! I was afraid to watch any of these because I didn’t
    want to see someone elses style and end up trying to achieve the same
    results in my photos. This video was very education for someone that
    doesn’t know a lot about the program, and I really appreciate that you
    showed what it is capable of more so than a “this is how your photos should
    look” type of video. One question: is there anything to be done about lens
    flare? Thanks a lot!

    I really need your help! When ever I edit in lightroom 4 and get my desired
    effect, I go to save it to a JPEG / quality 80 / sRGB. But the saved images
    looks really different from the way it looked in lightroom!!!! Please Help

  21. Bearded Fist says:

    Ha ha, thanks! I appreciate it! I figured as much, but I thought I’d ask
    anyways in case I had figured wrong. Thanks for the response. Take care!

  22. Nathan Jeffers says:

    I think as long as the result turns out how you want it to look it doesn’t
    matter how you go about achieving your goal.
