My Favorite Hidden Tools in Adobe Lightroom

adobe lightroom

Adobe Lightroom is an especially powerful and helpful tool for photographers. Over the years, it has gained features make managing and editing our photos much easier and more robust. Despite all of the tools available in the Develop module, there are some that are completely hidden unless you know how to invoke them. That’s what this video is all about.

Did you know that there are a series of hidden tools that can only be accessed when you press and hold a particular modifier? It’s true! And what is this mythical modifier key? It’s none than the Option (Mac) / Alt (Windows) key. When combined with specific sliders, it opens up entirely new ways for you to edit your photos. It really is impressive, so be sure to watch the video.

I highly recommend giving Adobe Lightroom  (part of the Adobe Creative Cloud) a shot. It's one of the most capable software apps that I've ever used.
