The Lightroom Brush Tool
Stand out with Selective Editing
Some images really stand out when you see them on Instagram or Facebook, parts of the shot just look so much better than you could ever achieve using normal Lightroom techniques. The secret to creating these kinds of images is to get selective using the Lightroom Brush Tool
All that means is that you apply settings to small parts of the photograph rather than everything at once. Is so you may want to just brighten somebody’s eyes, or perhaps make some rocks stand out in the foreground of Your Landscape image, this is where the Lightroom Brush Tool comes in.
In this tutorial video, we show you how to to use the Lightroom Brush Tool on a photograph taken in the Yorkshire Dales. Also, I show you how to save the settings away for another day – Lightroom allows you to keep settings safe in presets.
Have a go with the Brush yourself…
This technique is used widely in photography editing especially when using Photoshop, you can now do some really powerful things with the Lightroom brush tool so so we recommend you you reopen some old favourite photographs and give it a go.
One example would be the sky on this photographic shoot around Leeds – it was a genuinely dramatic day but I have used the power of brush techniques to make the sky look even more impressive
