Lightroom CC is a dedicated tool for photographers, focusing on features that are of particular interest to shutterbugs, as opposed to the more design-centric Photoshop. In this short 5 minute video from the full course Lightroom CC 101: Getting Started With Lightroom, professional photographer Hollin Jones gives you a hands-on guide to working with colour adjustments in your photos. With far more powerful tools than standard photo editing software, you can really take control of your images.
Using the example of some landscape shots, Hollin demonstrates how the hue, saturation, tone and level controls for the different colours within any image can be used to create greater or lesser intensity, changing a picture from subtle and muted to vivid and striking. You'll be amazed by the extent to which tweaking colours can make your pictures stand out. Check out the other videos in the course for much more detail on Lightroom CC!
