Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying a local adjustment preset with multiple tools, part of Using Presets in Lightroom.
We've seen that you can make presets for the Local Adjustment tools.…The Adjustment Brush tool, the Radial Filter tool, and the Graduated Filter tool…in the Develop panel. One of the useful features of Presets for…Local Adjustment tools is that you can use the same preset with any of these tools.…So let's say that I'd like to make a set of adjustments that affects just this…foreground hay bale to start with. I'm going to select the Radial Filter…tool, since the hay bale is oval in shaped.…And that opens a drop down menu of settings for the Radial Filter tool.…I'll set them all back to their defaults by double clicking the word, effect, at…the top of this dropdown. And that's a good shortcut to know for any…of the Adjustment tools. I'll Click and Drag an oval shape in the…image and I'm going to drag that on top of the hay bale.…
And then I'll choose some settings over here on the drop-down panel.…Maybe I'll reduce the Exposure a little bit, increase the Clarity and I might even…drop down the Tint a little bit so that the hay bale looks a little more green.…
