What’s in it for me?

Never again send unsharpened photos to your client, upload them on the web or have them printed.

EditCheck is a quality check tool. It reports in an accurate and very brief manner which selected photos have not been edited for almost 50 development adjustments. These reported editing steps can be: sharpening, lens correction, etc, see screen-shots below.

EditCheck is recommended for photographers – professional, semi professional, photo enthusiasts and anybody else as a great help in ensuring that their photos have the right adjustments.

Run EditCheck before delivering your photos to your client, before uploading them to a website or sending them off to be printed.

Another advantage is that this tool is for personal development; photographers tend to experiment and this tool is a great help in improving your own skills.

EditCheck is the companion of Assessment. EditCheck reveals the photos behind the graphics in Assessment.

Story behind

Geurt Besselink, one of the top nature photographers in the Netherlands, noticed that there was no tool in Lightroom to check if photos had been sharpened, lens correction applied, or … before delivering them to his clients. The only way to make sure this was done was to manually check them one by one.

Obviously this was time consuming and could easily lead to errors.

So he decided there must be an easier and more intelligent method. We collaborated and we created the solution for this problem: EditCheck!

This unique tool – EditChecks – does not only check if a photo is sharpened, it actually checks almost 50 development adjustments.

Operating EditCheck involves only 2 steps:

  • Select the photos you want to check (max 1500).
  • Choose Menu -> Library -> Plug-in Extra -> EditCheck

These collections are organized in a hierarchy of 7 collection sets, in the same way as the right panel in the Develop module.

So with a few clicks you see all the photos for which Exposure has not been changed for …
