Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying a Graduated Filter, part of Learning Lightroom 3.
Another very useful local adjustment tool is the Gradient Filter tool, which is…here in the Tools panel next to the Adjustment Brush tool. And like the…Adjustment Brush tool,…the Gradient Filter tool lets you bring in effects in local areas of a photo,…but it does it in a different way than the Adjustment Brush tool.…I'm going to open the Gradient Filter panel, so that you can see the same effects…here that we saw in the last movie in the Adjustment Brush tool.…The way that I can bring these effects into this image is to bring them in…gradually, over a slight gradient, fading from a strong effect at one part of the…photo to a lesser effect at another part, and that's really useful in a…situation like this.…
This is a typical photo from shooting outside with a big sky and a wide range of light.…If you have a neutral density filter in your camera bag, you can take care of…this uneven lighting situation right there in your camera.…But if you don't carry a filter like that, then you can fix it here in Lightroom…
