A short article outlining the blog posts to be published in February 2019, but also some changes made on my website during this past month.
In last week’s blog article on how to post-process astrophotographs in Adobe® Lightroom, I showed you how to create a pleasing astrophotograph. But it came with a catch. The foreground caught a color cast by the changes I made to the Tone Curve. In this week’s third and last part of post-processing astrophotographs, I am going to show you how to make the Tone Curve adjustments without changing the foreground in Adobe® Photoshop
In the first article of this series we started post-processing a night sky photo in Adobe® Lightroom. As I mentioned, I would have been satisfied with the results from that blog post up until today, if I hadn’t read an article in Outdoor Photographer, The Milky Way Dilemma by Glenn Randall, from December 2017. So in this part of the series we are going to continue the post-processing. I will first show you what results are possible within Adobe® Lightroom. Since I wasn’t satisfied with those, I will then show you how to improve these with Adobe® Photoshop.
In the following article series, I am going to show how to post-process astrophotographs. The preparations to open the file in Adobe® Lightroom are the same as described in How To create a Monochrome Image. This article will guide you through the basic steps of post-processing in
Adobe® Lightroom. The second article will continue with the specific adjustments for astrophotography.
