Is it just me, or is Lightroom Classic getting more powerful as a standalone editing tool with every update? Learn how to use some of its wonderful tools to create gorgeous, rich sunset tones in your images.
When I first got the subscription from Adobe, I didn't really want Lightroom included in the package. At the time, I felt Lightroom was far too clunky as an organizational tool and was simply too slow for my needs. I was happy with my combination of Photoshop and Fast Stone image viewer, but alas, I couldn't get Photoshop without Lightroom Classic (and Mobile) thrown in for good measure. I took it on the chin and just let Lightroom sit there on my computer, idle and lifeless. However, in the last year or so, Lightroom has really taken off and added some great new features that have made me sit up and take notice.
In this great video brought to you by Phlearn, Aaron Nace shows you to use Lightroom Classic (or Lightroom Desktop) to create deep, rich sunset tones in your images. For me, that was always the exclusive domain of Adjustment Layers, Blend Modes, and masking in Photoshop, but with the new masking feature in Lightroom Classic, you now have so many more options and editing possibilities without needing to skip straight over to Photoshop. Give it a watch, and let me know what you think of Lightroom's recent updates in the comments below.
