A Guide to Editing an Image in Lightroom From Start to Finish

If you are new to editing your images, you might feel a bit overwhelmed by the dozens of sliders and adjustments available to you in Lightroom. They are not too difficult once you get the hang of them, though. This great video tutorial features an experienced photographer sharing his Lightroom editing work to get you on your way. 

Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this helpful video tutorial will show you how to edit a photo in Lightroom from start to finish. If you are new to post-processing your work, the best piece of advice I can give is simply to remember that when it comes to edits, less is more, especially when it comes to things like color. If you look at the work of photographers you admire, you will probably notice a lot of their edits are actually quite subtle. Programs like Lightroom are quite powerful, and it often does not take much manipulation of a control to make a large difference, so err on the side of doing less to start. This will help you develop a more discerning and refined eye. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.
