How To Get the Most Out of the Before/After Feature in Lightroom

One of Lightroom's simplest features is also one of its most useful: the before/after function. This goes much deeper than simply switching back and forth between edited and unedited versions of your photos, though. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to get the most out of the feature, as well as a nifty hidden trick that makes it all the more useful. 

Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this helpful video tutorial will show you the ins and outs of the before/after function in Lightroom. I have to admit that I never knew of the ability to use the History panel to set where the before option references, which makes it quite useful depending on how you edit your photos. I use this function almost constantly when I edit. It is very important to keep an eye on how far you are pushing an image, though this can be more difficult than you might think, as it is easy to get a bit of tunnel vision in the process. Quickly flipping back and forth between the edited and unedited versions is a great way to keep a close watch on this. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.
