When the Radial Filter and Graduated Filter aren't working, the Adjustment Brush may be the answer. Learn how to use this to your advantage in this video.
- [Instructor] So, there will be times … that the radial filter … and the graduated filter just don't work. … And that's when we want to use the adjustment brush. … Now, we used the adjustment brush a little bit … for doing some spot retouching earlier. … We were doing some teeth whitening. … And you can do all sorts of things with it. … It also works really well on an image like this … where the foreground is dark. … The background is light. … Neither one of them is a convenient shape … that we can just overlay. … So if I jump into the Develop module. … My first step is to hit Auto, … and sure enough the foreground looks much better. … And if I pull in the highlights, … I get a little more of the sky, … but I feel like I'm missing something. … I feel like there's a lot more to it. … So, what I'll do is I'll go into the adjustment brush, … and I just want to set the adjustment brush … so that I can burn-in the sky. … So, to do that I'm going to pull back the exposure a little. … I'm going to pull back the highlights a bit. …
