Understanding Lightroom Classic’s Develop module is the key to making your photos look their best. The Develop module’s non-destructive editing sliders and tools enable you to explore different options while having the ability to undo any edits at any time. Having a good understanding of how these features are used and when to use them makes all the difference when editing important photos. This class will explore the Develop module and take you through the basics to show you how a few simple adjustments can help make your photos pop.
Some of the things you’ll learn:
- Understanding the histogram and shadow and highlight clipping
- Understanding and using profiles to get the look you like
- Fine tuning overall tone and midtone contrast with the Basic panel
- Using the Tone Curve panel to fine tune contrast
- Comparing and contrasting Texture, Clarity and Dehaze controls
