    Martin, thanks for another great travelogue podcast. I think I like this kind (travelogues) best and get them most from them of all your podcasts. I have a question about your comment at the end re Capture One Pro’s ability to copy/paste being an another advantage over Lightroom. I don’t use Capture One, but I am a Lightroom user and I’m considering making the switch. In LR, I frequently copy adjustments from one image to others via the Copy and Paste buttons in the Develop module, and this seems to work well. I’m wondering if you can explain how this feature in LR differs from C1’s copy/paste and why is C1’s better? Thanks!

      Hi Kelly,

      I’m pleased you enjoy these travelogues.

      If you actually can do that, it would seem that I just missed that feature in Lightroom. I don’t have time to check right now, but I didn’t know that was possible, so that’s a point back for Lightroom.

    I like my skies, which are often clear and blue here in San Diego, better when I adjust the Hue toward magenta using the Targeted Adjustment Tool in the HSL panel of Lightroom.

    Here is a great article about Capture One and Lightroom by Martin Evening: http://bit.ly/2luaQSr

    I enjoy your podcasts. Thank you!!

      Thanks Eric! I’m sure I’d work with what I had if I lived in San Diego, but personally, I prefer grey, textured skies. 🙂
