What is your Fuji Xt1 lightroom raw workflow for Alamy?


Recommended Posts

I shoot in raw

I import the images into Lightroom

I set the color profile to Fuji Velvia

I sync all the images

I go through each image and touch up if anything needs touching up or cull it if it isn't up to my standards

I caption and keyword the images

I upload them to Alamy.

Ed - have you considered setting up an import preset, so that the Velvia profile is automatically applied on import? That would save you a step in your process - you wouldn't have to sync all images.

I have and that's a very good suggestion, - but I don't always use Fuji Cameras and I don't always use Velvia with them (just most of the time).  When I shoot with my Canon cameras, I usually use Landscape (though there are exceptions).  I wouldn't put it past myself to try to import a Canon RAW file with a Fuji preset or vice versa.  The more options there are the more opportunity I have to confuse myself :)

The import presets are (can be) camera specific, even ISO specific. I set default settings for all ISOs with basic settings (camera profile), vibrance, saturation and appropriate sharpening and noise reduction already in place. Then I go back and adjust up or down individually as necessary. I agree that doing it on import as default saves a bunch of time in post and having to synchronise every time. Just spend some time to set it up once and forget it.

Ohhhhh....just took another look at it and this is different than when I first looked at it in Lightroom 2 or 3 (can't remember).  I will definitely need to set that up.  Thanks DHill and Jason for the suggestion!

Import an image, go into Develop, Set your preset and then hold down the Alt key.. one of the lower buttons in that right hand panel should change to "set default",,, this enables you to set the default profile for that camera...
