With my notes from the Workflow presentation in hand, I went looking for my Nikon presets (Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Portrait, Landscape) in Photoshop and Lightroom. I didn't see them. In Lightroom, I expected to see them in the Develop panel under Tone Curve. In Photoshop, when the "Camera Raw Nikon D7000" window pops up, I expected to see them under either Tone Curve or Presets. But again, there are no presets anywhere.
I'm new to both Photoshop and Lightroom, so maybe there's something I need to do in order to make the camera presets visible.

they are found in the camera calibration tab in the develop module.
John, LR 5.3 > Camera Calibration > Profile > ...... starts with Adobe Standard. In PS6 > I'm stumped just like you are! I can't find the camera setting in Photoshop or Bridge 6.
Ops, John you need to be in Develop mode first, a duh moment on my parts LOL
Thanks, Alan. I found them under Camera Calibration in Lightroom Develop and Photoshop ACR. They are listed as: Camera Landscape, Camera Neutral, Camera Portrait, Camera Standard, and Camera Vivid. There is no Camera Monochrome, which is strange because Monochrome is one of the Nikon D7000 presets.
(and thanks Steve)
In Lightroom 5 go to Camera Calibration. You should find it there John.
Anyone have any success with cleaning your own sensor...?
0 · November 14, 2013
Jerry, my success level has varied depending on the camera/sensor size. On my first 2 Nikon's with the small sensor I always had good luck with Eclipse Sensor Pads (http://www.adorama.co...). When I went to full frame with a Nikon D3x I had a terrible time using the Visible Dust Arctic Butterfly (http://www.adorama.co...), and this tool is EXPENSIVE. I like the LED loop for looking for dust. Now with my D800 I've cleaned it myself, and used a whole $50 kit of Sensor Pads to do it! The next time my Nikon needed cleaning I sent it to Nikon, less trouble for me anyway.
Thanks, Alan. I think John at Tucson Camera Repair charges $45 for a cleaning. I am doing a lot of work off the grid, and I don't always have access to professional grade service.
Thanks for the tip about John at Tucson Camera. My other home, in N Calif., is several hundred miles from the nearest camera shop worth it's salt so it was either I figure out how to clean the sensor or pay Nikon to do it. I've just seen a YouYube video of the Leica plant that builds the M9. They used this weird little square of something like silicone(?) on the end of a stick. The person putting together the camera would take a reference shot to check for dust (always!) and then use this little thing on a stick and just press and lift, over and over the sensor in a pattern that didn't seem to repeat. The stick tool was cleaned by placing it onto a special sticky pad of paper! Another test shot, repeat cleaning if necessary, which didn't seem to a needed more than twice. The products aren't sold in the US yet, a Photo review website is trying to get them marketed here.
I just ordered this off of Amazon. Was what you saw similar to this...? http://www.amazon.com...

Not seen this one before but i'm sure it'll work well.
Jerry, VERY similar to what I saw used on a Leica. I found it "odd" that neither B&H or Adorama carry this product any longer?
Jerry, the sensor cleaners I saw used by Leica (on utube) are starting to come to the USA. A "Blog" called photographylife.com got in its first shipment last week and sold out in a day! They claim more are on the way and the price is around $30 but you've got to watch closely and act VERY fast. It seems there is interest in these pads, I know I need to clean my D800!
Thanks again, Alan. I went to http://www.photograph..., and searched for it, but couldn't find anything....
Jerry, follow this link; http://photographylif... and you'll see the sensor cleaning tool, at least one of them, used by Leica.
Thanks, Alan. I received a very similar product from Amazon (see above for link) today, and it worked very well...
Ok... after viewing the video it appears to me that the Leica product would be somewhat easier to manipulate. Would that I had not already purchased. =:o)
I enjoyed the HDR presentation. Looks like I should upgrade my Photomatix from Pro3 to pro4.

The current version of Photomatix is 4.24. They have version 5 available in early beta format right now.

Steve, I just checked my version on my Mac, it's now Photomatix Pro (4.2.7), not[masked]
Same on my computer. I forgot I ran the update the other day.
Thanks, Steve, for another great presentation - HDR has been my recent DSLR "thing" so timing was perfect. Sorry I missed the rest, but have downloaded your outline to review.Thanks again!Peace, Judi
I'm really glad I went. Learned a lot, very enjoyable, great leader and group.
Steve, thanks so much again for your help. I will use tips. :)
Excellent as usual. The group was enthusiastic and appeared to be getting answers to all of their questions. I always come away with new information with which to improve my photography.
Great tips on HDR. Looking forward to layers (ha!)

Steve does a heck of a good job trying to cover LOTS & LOTS of information in just 3 hours.
As usual, a good meeting.
i have done its take a lot of time , most of the kits are a good price .
Thanks, Fred. Which kit(s) have you used?
Everything I'm interested in; can't wait.
Darn... will be backpacking on Eagle Creek. And yes, "making" photographs.
just got photoshop cs6 ,and am having problem with file saving
0 · November 12, 2013
Fred, what type of computer? Could you be more specific in describing your problem too? Are you trying to save to the main computer hard drive or an external hard drive?
It looks like it will be very interesting. I will try to attend. It is a good way to meet new people too. I live in El Paso.

After a detailed discussion of color calibration, installing printer profiles and showing some new tools in Photoshop and Lightroom, members requested two specific topics for the November meeting.
I will demonstrate my workflow from import thru output. We will discuss keywording, geo-tagging and editing.
After the break, I will discuss HDR shooting from in the field techniques to processing. I will demonstrate Photoshop, Photomatix and NIK's HDR Efex Pro for creating stunning HDR images.
Note, the meeting is a week earlier than normal due to ITT closing for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
