Advanced Editing Techniques in Lightroom

Photographers generally think of Lightroom as the place to catalog their images and perform basic edits, while leaving Photoshop for the more advanced work. And while that is certainly a good general guideline, you might be surprised by just how much you can do in Lightroom. This great video will show you a range of more advanced editing techniques in Lightroom.

Coming to you from Aaron Nace with Phlearn, this excellent video will show you some advanced editing techniques in Lightroom. Personally, I hate going into Photoshop unless I absolutely have to. It is not that I have something against Photoshop; it is just that I like to keep everything in one place if possible, as it keeps my workflow more efficient and streamlined that way. You might think that Lightroom is really only for basic global adjustments, but you can actually do quite a bit of local work via the graduated and radial filters, adjustment brushes, and more. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Nace.

And if you are a bit newer to Lightroom and want to get the basics down first, be sure to check out "Fstoppers Introduction to Adobe Lightroom: The Ultimate Crash Course, With Pye Jirsa!"

Great! Thanks! I started watching reluctantly, not sure I would learn anything new, but I did! I had no idea about that immensely useful range mask!

Editing a jpeg file and writing a useless piece to accompany a video without a summary of the topics discussed. I thought f-stoppers was known for their high-quality content
