i downloaded LR3 last night, and so far im quite impressed. alot of the tools are similar to DPP, but i love the ability to make fine adjustments ie sharpness in just one area of the image.

couple of questions (so far):

1. how do you make global adjustments? as suggested by tkerr and rene damkot, in DPP i can select all and use tool palette. what about in LR?

Select only one image. Make your adjustments to it such as crop, exposure, sharpness, noise reduction, etc. Then select all of the images and click "Sync". Check the boxes of the adjustments you want to make. Click OK. All of the images will be adjusted in the blink of an eye. You can then adjust them individually as you see fit.

2. how do you adjust something for a whole image? i was looking to adjust sharpness, and it gave me the sharpness brush - do i have to paint the whole image, or is there a better/easier way?

I always use the sharpness slider. Never have tried to sharpen part of an image.

Two ways actually: You can sync, or you can select and adjust multiple images in the Library module.
One is absolute, the other relative:

Drag the sliders in the "Develop" module.

too many adjustments in LR.

so far ive been expanding range in the histogram, dropping brightness, doing lens correction/NR/sharpeni​ng, and tweaking saturation here and there. its a slow process, no way can i do it for 350+ pics. uhhhh, need to get the kelby book

If you're certain that some of them adjustments can be applied the same to a group or all the images you can "Sync". When you make adjustments to one image, Select all the images you want to apply those changes to and then click "Sync". That will open up another dialog box so you can pick and choose exactly which changes you want to synchronize.

curious.... when i use DPP to export JPEGs @ quality 8, i get files that are around 6-7MB in size (full 18mp). when i export the same files in LR3 @ quality 80, files are around 3MB.....

is the compression algorithm in LR3 that much better? where am i losing 50% of the file size relative to DPP?

Yes, there are different processes. Compare for yourself if you prefer one above the other. Also, "8" does not equal "80"...as I said, judge for yourself!

An easy way to make it faster is be very judicious at cutting down your 400 to half or less. There's no reason for a third photog to have 400 images. Cut it down to the best and apply your best PP skills to those.

i tried..... i think i managed to chop it to something like 300. most of the shots were stuff that the photogs wouldnt have gotten - the groomsmen getting ready (of which i was one, so there was actually a 4th shooter haha), just hanging waiting while the photogs were taking shots of just the bride and groom, and then the dinner after (when the photog finished his stuff). i wish i had to PP less!!!! lol

It's good real world "working" practice of pp. I'm sure the newlyweds will appreciate your gift in the end. ;)

lol yeah. they opted for just an album + prints on a limited number of pics and did not pay the photog for the full set of originals (i think it was around $4000 for all the pictures + rights), so i got a bunch of people hounding me for pics. i am quite happy to provide, and definitely appreciate the practice. should have the full license of LR3 coming this weekend, plus scott kelby's book
