Three Useful Lightroom Tips You Might Not Have Seen Before

While it used to be that Photoshop was the place for any sort of advanced photo editing, in recent iterations, Lightroom has become impressively intricate and capable. In fact, you can now do a lot of things in the program you used to have to switch to Photoshop for, and often, you can perform them more efficiently in Lightroom. This great video tutorial will show you three functions and techniques you might not be aware of and how to use them in your editing.

Coming to you from Park Cameras, this helpful video tutorial will show you three lesser-known techniques for working in Lightroom. I have found the intersect function in the new masking panel especially useful (and if you have not tried out that panel, you are really missing out). The intersect function can be a bit strange to work with at first, but an easy way to think about it is that Lightroom will only apply adjustments where all the constituent masks overlap. This allows to efficiently mix disparate masks (like a luminosity mask and a gradient mask or a radial mask and a subject mask) with a high level of precision. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
