Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding lighting effects with radial gradients, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] Another tool that you can use…to adjust just part of an image is the Radial Gradient tool,…which is located over here in the column on the right.…The Radial Gradient tool works a lot like the Brush tool…that we covered in the last movie,…except that the Radial Gradient tool…lays down effects in an oval pattern,…and that makes it great for making organic adjustments,…like turning on lamps or creating a spotlight effect.…It's also good for creating a vignette…that doesn't have to be in the middle of the image…because you can move a Radial Gradient wherever you want.…
Let's go ahead and click the Radial Gradient tool,…and that changes the next column…to the Radial Gradient settings.…You can see that they're the same settings…that we used for the Brush tool.…If I were to start using the Radial Gradient now,…it would apply all of these sticky settings…that are remaining from my last use of the tool.…So I'm going to reset all of those to ground zero…by hovering over any one of the sliders,…right-clicking or Control-clicking,…
