Local vs. Global Editing

Global edits are adjustments that will affect an image as a whole. Local editing involves making isolated adjustments to any portion of an image. Sometimes you’ll just want to make changes to your subject, or just to the background, or just to a portion of either. Understanding the importance of both local and global editing will give you the ability to have complete control over your final picture, pixel-to-pixel.

Quickly Solve Problems

Photo editing is problem solving. What do you do if your background is properly exposed but your subject’s face is a little too dark? Or there are some small distractions threatening to draw the viewer’s attention? We’ll show you some quick and effective methods for solving these problems and more using the local editing tools in Lightroom.

Easy Spot Removal

Quickly and easily help people and environments look their best using the built-in Spot Removal tool in Lightroom. Remove blemishes and distractions in an instant with clean, professional-looking results.

When the Graduated and Radial Filters can’t get the job done, the Adjustment Brush is to the rescue. Using this tool, you can paint over any areas of an image that you wan’t to be affected by your edits.

Graduated & Radial Filters

The Graduated and Radial Filter tools in Lightroom allow you to make highly-customizable, powerful masks to a select portion of an image. These can tackle a surprising number of editing challenges, from faces to landscapes.
