Lightroom HSL Color the #1 Way to Shift and Remove Color

Lightroom HSL Color and Color

Adobe Lightroom HSL Color. The develop panel or module was actually designed as a raw image converter. It is exactly the same as Adobe Camera Raw. The look a little different, but you can do exactly the same thing on both. Adobe Lightroom is still a raw image converter, used to process, .cr2, .cr3, .nef, .arw, and .dng, however, it can be used as an image editor. I use Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw for setting white balance, and basic global and selective adjustments. You will learn over time what are the applications positives and negatives. I then send the image to Adobe Photoshop by using the quick key, Mac-CMD/E and PC-CRTL/E.

Lightroom HSL color is an option midway down on the develop panel. Color is edited two ways. One is by adjusting the white balance in the develop module, and you should always use this. Second, using Lightroom HSL Color. This option allows you to shift the Hue(color), Saturation, and Luminance(lightness or darkness) of an individual color. For example, if a face is too red, you can adjust the red and orange hues to more the red towards a warm yellow. You can also de-saturate which can be helpful, as well as adjust the lightness of that specific color. This is an awesome function, however, it only works globally. If you want to do it on a specific location, I would suggest moving the image in Adobe Photoshop. I hope you enjoy this video on Lightroom HSL Color and Color.

Adobe Lightroom Classic Series

Welcome to Adobe Lightroom Classic YouTube video tutorials. This is a series of YouTube videos designed to teach you how to use Adobe Lightroom Classic, and in this case Adobe Lightroom Classic Preferences. I will try and update the videos as the program changes over the years. If you are new to Adobe Lightroom Classic, follow the video order from 1-?. This is the same order I use to teach Adobe Lightroom Classic in a college class. However, if you are just interested in learning a specific technique, free free to jump around.

Speed up your workflow by using quick keys. The quick key for most functions are located to the right in the menu!

JOHN WHITEHEAD IMAGES

I will have two different types of videos in this series. Videos designed to teach you how to use the program, and videos designed to show you how to adjust an image. Some of how I look at or tone an image can be subjective. I try to be as straight forward as possible to let you know when some should be done a certain way, verses a subject adjustment.

Most people never take a look at Adobe Lightroom Classic Preferences, but there are some adjustments that need to be made to make the program more efficient. The two most important are external editing and performance. Performance settings will really depend on your computer specifications. All the Adobe programs require a large amount of RAM, a good processor and hard drive space.

    I have a Facebook Group called, “Learn Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Bridge.” I created this group because I get a lot of questions on YouTube that are hard to answer unless I can see the issue. This will allow a place you can ask questions, and more importantly post images and videos.
