Lightroom looks like a very simple product but it's very advanced and can be very complicated. It's so good that I almost don't use Photoshop anymore. But there are many misconceptions. Here are some the biggest misconceptions:
- Lightroom will not match your cameras rendering when working with raw files. The camera shows only the jpeg preview, not the raw data. Lightroom applies its processing to the raw data. You can emulate the camera preview with presets or create your own camera profile.
- Lightroom doesnâ€™t import photos in it's own database. Lightroom keeps track of information about the photos and the changes you want to apply to the photos.
- Lightroom does NOT change the original photos. It will apply the changes during the display, unlike Photoshop that does change the photos.
- Before switching to Lightroom 64 bit, make sure that your printer has 64 bit drivers available or Lightroom will not print to your printer.
- Lightroom supports 3 colour spaces: sRGB, AdobeRGB and ProPhotoRGB. Almost all no "graphics" program manage colour space. These programs include all email programs, all web browsers and all gallery viewers. So in general you should use the sRGB colour space.
