How This Rarely Used Adobe Lightroom Tool Can Rejuvenate Your Landscape Photos

There are numerous ways to edit a landscape photo with dozens of tools at your disposal. However, Lightroom's Calibration tab is one that does not get anywhere near as much attention as more common tools, even though it can invigorate your images. This great video tutorial will show you how the Calibration tab works and how you can use it to give your images a bit more pop. 

Coming to you from Attilio Ruffo, this awesome video tutorial will show you how to use Lightroom's Calibration tab to add a bit more pop to your landscape images. A lot of people go years without ever touching the Calibration tab, and that is perfectly fine, as it is not essential to editing your images or developing a creative style. However, as you will see, the Blue Primary subsection in particular can add a lot of pop to the colors in your image, and it does so in a rather natural way that does not create a gaudy, overbaked look like too much saturation can. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ruffo.

People still using LR in 2021?

I use Crayons and Sharpie pens.

Yep! For my work, there's nothing better, especially since it ties right in with Photoshop.

I'm living on mars so i use something different. ;-)
