3 Adobe Lightroom Image Editing Tips
Here are some tips you may find useful when using Adobe Lightroom to edit your photos –
Take Great Photos
The first you editing great photos is to make sure you take amazing photos on your camera. That way you reduce the amount of editing work you have to do. I always make sure I do the best I can when taking pictures on my camera. The better the pictures I take, the less editing I do. Sometimes the pictures are amazing straight from the camera, I have no editing to do. Those are the pictures I like to that. You can check the settings of the raw photo on Adobe Lightroom by clicking on command plus I on MacBook, and then press I to get rid of the information on the screen.
I like to get as much natural light as possible when taking photographs. I also make sure everything is where it needs to be so I don’t have to erase or adjust anything. Paying attention to the camera settings especially the ISO bit helps. I play around with various settings until I get the right settings for the photos I want. I like to shoot with manual settings so I can adjust as I go along. Automatic settings are not be trusted if you want great photographs.
Edit in dark rooms
When editing photos in Adobe Lightroom, it is best to do so in a dark room. That way you get to adjust the basic panel settings (temperature, tint, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows and others) correctly without any interference from the lightening in the room.
Start editing from the basic panel
When editing, it is best to always start with the main parts to edit and then finish off with the smaller parts. That way you don’t get to repeat or correct edits you have already done. It is best to start editing from the basic panel. I usually start editing from this section and work my way to other sections if necessary. I play around with different adjustments (moving the sliders back and forth) until I get the right look for the photo. The first thing I adjust in a photo is the exposure. I like to get the right amount of light in if needed, then I move over to other sections in the basic panel.
I am currently taking a diploma course in Adobe Lightroom Editing and I am learning new tips everyday, so I may be sharing more tips in future. Do you use any photo editing tool? Do you have any tips to share?
