Lightroom has become quite an impressively capable editing program, able to tackle many advanced post-processing tasks that used to be reserved exclusively for Photoshop. As such, it can easy to overlook some of its tools. This excellent video tutorial will show you a lesser-known tool, what it does, and how to use it to create more precise edits.
Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this great video tutorial will show you the targeted adjustment tool in Lightroom and how to use it for efficient and more precise edits. The targeted adjustment tool is so useful because it allows you to adjust specific colors or tonal values without having to guess at what they are. For example, say you want to pump up the saturation of lake water in a photo. Lightroom has the HSL (hue, saturation, and luminance) panel to do this, but that water is probably a combination of blue, green, and purple hues. You could adjust those three sliders until you find the correct combinations, or you can use the targeted adjustment tool, and it will automatically adjust the constituent sliders in the correct proportion as needed. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.
