Lenscraft in Focus Newsletter October 2018
Welcome to the Lenscraft in Focus newsletter for October 2018.
I’m going to start this month’s newsletter by explaining this is joint issue with November. I don’t like doing this, but I have a personal commitment which will prevent me from publishing November’s issue. Rest assured though, I will be sending December’s newsletter at the start of December. For the time being, I hope you enjoy this latest issue.
Problems with Lightroom Presets
I can understand why Adobe decided to improve the file structure but why make some of the other changes? Some of the changes mean that the most popular method of installing presets have stopped working. As more people move to the latest versions of Lightroom CC, and want to install presets, they’re going encounter this problem.
From personal experience I can tell you that it’s very frustrating as almost all the advice on Google shows methods that don’t work. That’s why I’ve updated the tutorial on Lenscraft explaining how to install Lightroom Presets and included a video to explain everything.
Even if you don’t currently need to install Lightroom Presets, it’s worth knowing about this as you can help others who encounter the problem. You can read the article here…

Camera Club Presentations
My next club presentation will be on the 18th December 2018 at Chester Photographic Society.
From Around the Web
It appears a lot of you enjoyed Jack Curran’s photography last month. It was great that so many of you visited his site. I received a very nice email from Jack thanking me for all the visitors he had received. Well-deserved in my option.

Affinity Photo Tutorials
I will be publishing the first video in the series on the 11th October. As with my Nik Bitesize Tutorials, these are short videos that build into an effective resource for learning Affinity Photo. I start with the basics to help you understand the software and tools before tackling more advanced features.
A lot of people I speak to like Affinity Photo but struggle to understand it. That’s not surprising as it’s quite like Photoshop with a similarly steep learning curve. I’m hoping this new video series will help a lot of users take advantage of its power.
Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel to avoid missing the videos.

There won’t be a newsletter in November due to other personal commitments. I will publish the next newsletter on the first Saturday in December.
