Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing parts of a photo, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…For the most part, I think of Lightroom as a global image editor,…which is to say that whatever I do, I'm doing to the entire image.…But there are some great selective editing tools.…Now granted, this is really Photoshop's forte, selective edits, masking,…precise edits, but you can get pretty far in Lightroom…these days and I want to show you some tips and…tricks to work on just a tiny part of the image.…'Kay.…So, let's take this image, which I've reset so it's back to normal and…we're in our develop module.…And, as I showed before, we can pretty quickly, restore some highlight and shadow…detail, but what if we only wanted to affect a particular area and not the rest?…Well, I've got a couple of great tools for that.…
