Adobe Lightroom for Beginners 2: Basic Photo Editing Tools

In Adobe Lightroom, you’ll see categories in the top, right-hand corner of your screen. These categories are called modules :

Click on the Graduated Filter symbol on the right side of your screen, then drag your mouse down or up (left or right) from the picture frame. To darken up bright areas of the pictures (like the sky), go down to at least - on the exposure parameter. Alternatively, you can brighten up shady areas by bringing the exposure and shadows up.

Smart Previews are like magic. Lightroom can build smaller versions of your images inside of your Lightroom catalog so that you can keep editing when you disconnect.

Anyway, yes! For everyday photo editing, I think Lightroom is much better than Photoshop. It’s faster to use, and it’s much more affordable.

Here we have options for how big to make the “center size,” ., the area to be edited. Inside this area, everything can be made brighter (inner brightness) and everything outside the area can be made darker (outer brightness). We can also do it in reverse, making the inner darker and the outer brighter.

Photoshop is for graphic design and large-scale photo editing jobs. It’s great for when you need to edit out an entire person, for example, or add a T-Rex to a bridal party shot. (And yes, I’ve received both these requests, haha.) And it’s fabulous for creating graphics like the one you see above. But it’s not for everyday photo editing.

You are the sweetest… thank you so much! I tend to find that saturation makes my photos look fake, which is why I typically just pump vibrance up to +85 and call it a day. )

I definitely need to save this tutorial for future reading. My boyfriend got me the full Photoshop 7565 and OMG it was so damn confusing. I tried editing photos but it took freaking forever and was seriously giving me heartburn just trying to figure anything out. I may make the jump and get Lightroom instead would you recommend the subscription or just go get the whole thing for $697?

7. Pay attention to how every slider in Lightroom affects an image. It takes time and practice to really master this but this is the type of knowledge that will save you so much time in post processing!! Look at the example below! I darkened the “DARKS” on the top image. On the lower image, I darkened the “SHADOWS”. These dials affect totally different areas in the image. It’s important to realize this! I choose to edit by darkening the “Shadows” because it’s a much lighter edit that still “pops” without loosing detail in the dark areas of the image. That “Tonal Curve” will become your BEST friend!

One of the most misunderstood parts of digital photography is what happens after you take the shot: the post-processing. This is where you edit the images you have taken, to create the final product.
