Fujifilm X-series Cameras and Lightroom

Users of Fujifilm’s excellent X-series cameras with Lightroom 5.4 now have an added bonus when shooting camera raw (i.e. .RAF) files. You can now apply the camera presets that you would apply in-camera if shooting .jpeg files to your raw files either on import or at any stage during your post-processing.

If you want to do this when importing go to the right hand side of the import screen and select your chosen preset from the ‘Develop Settings’ drop-down menu under the ‘Apply During Import’ dialog box (see screenshot below). Alternatively if you want to do it to any image or batch of images during post-processing then you need to go to the ‘Camera Calibrations’ settings at the bottom of the right-hand column in the ‘Develop’ module. This again is illustrated in  a screen-shot below. The great thing is that if you change your mind at any time you can easily select another preset, or even do a virtual copy (cmd+’ or ctrl+’) and apply a different preset to each image. Have fun, and get the best out of your images!

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
