We really wish there was a PhD Program for Lightroom.
That is how much time and effort we have put into this piece of software – enough to warrant a dissertation, committee review, and tenured faculty position at a prestigious University.
While we can dream of such a position, day-to-day we know what Lightroom is all about: getting things done and having fun!
That being said, we’ve compiled 3 posts which take the Lightroom Develop Module (more specifically the adjustments panel), and expose all the nuances of these tools that matter.
We’ve said it before: the Supercharged V8 Engine of Lightroom is the Develop Module, and if you are so inclined to get under the hood, you’ve come to the right place.
This is a good start whether you’re an old pro working with the Histogram or are seeing it for the first time.
- What “Shooting to the Right” means
- Shadow and Highlight Management
- Tonal Range Reporting
- Image Data Preservation
The histogram isn’t like some anti-social roommate who eats your food out of the refrigerator when you’re not looking. He’s a cool dude, and loves to grab a beer or two with his bro’s – especially the Tone Curve. As a matter of fact, the tone Curve is the histogram’s wingman.
- Histogram and Tone Curve: The Relationship
- Managing Shadows and Highlights (and everything in-between)
The Histogram and Tone Curve have an entire Crew they roll with – here’s your chance to meet the important ones.
- Basic Adjustments
- Adjustment Brushes
- HSL / Color / Grayscale Panels
- Split Toning
Go out there and make us proud … !
