Hi,

Just a quick one. When shooting RAW with the 5D classic what saturation do you mostly apply to the RAW file in LR2 ?

I normally will just do WB correction, crop, medium contrast curve and then add between 8-10 saturation. From then on I would edit in photoshop if needed.

Thanks

just save your settings as a preset and be done with it

Thanks but I wanted to know what level of saturation the majority of LR2 users apply to their 5D classic RAW files. I am using between 8-10 by default before doing further post-processing.

I generally end up with:

Clarity: 20
Vibrance: 20-30
Saturation: 5-10

Thanks for the response. I haven't really played too much with Clarity or Vibrance. I'll give it a test next time.

Anyone else care to contribute?

I rarely touch the saturation - but always increase Clarity by 20-30

Thanks. Do you do a lot of prints? I print on matte paper and notice that the colours look more "alive" when I boost the saturation to between 8 and 10

I also tweak the contrast sometimes if the light looks a bit too flat for me
