In a thread awhile back, I expressed frustration with Lightroom "washing out" my photos when importing. A few of you suggested setting a custom preset to use when importing photos. I have been trying to find the right presets to use to get the results I want, but all to no avail. Below is an example: this is the converted image from Lightroom with no adjustments this is the jpeg straight from my camera I tried for the longest time to mess around with settings in Lightroom to get the RAW photo to have the same color as the jpeg, but just couldn't get anything that was even close. I do like shooting in RAW for the flexibility it gives me in adjusting pp, but I guess I am just not as good as my camera at processing RAW files. I did download a trial of Capture NX and really liked the colors, but couldn't figure out the program for the life of me. I don't have the manaul and simply don't have time to try to learn another program right now. I like Lightroom and would like to continue to use that, but just can't seem to get the colors right. Any advice? Thanks!
