Lightroom has evolved into a tremendously versatile and powerful program, capable of tackling many things that one used to have to switch to Photoshop for. Nonetheless, there is always room to grow. This great video essay features a seasoned Lightroom educator discussing five things he would still like to see Adobe add to the program.
Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this interesting video essay discusses five features he would like to see added to Lightroom. Morganti is one of the most well-known Lightroom veterans out there and knows the application inside and out, so it is well worth hearing his take on what could make it better. Of the five he mentions, I would most like to see the full availability of adjustments added to the new masking panel. Lightroom's masking capabilities have advanced by leaps and bounds, and they have fundamentally changed the way I edit my photos, both in terms of efficiency and the adjustments I make. Nonetheless, unlike Photoshop, there are quite a few adjustments missing. For example, I would love to be able to take advantage of the HSL panel and the automated sky selection to add a quick color grade to the sky and make the blues pop. Hopefully, we'll see those options added in a future upgrade. Check out the video above for Morganti's full thoughts.
