- OK, for the most part we've worked top to bottom…with this image, but you might have noticed…that I sort of neglected the various tools…that are in Lightroom.…You can use these in whichever order that you want,…but in the case of crop, I like the crop…that I have with the image.…But you can always change that.…So if I choose the crop tool,…the thing I want to point out here is, if I hit the o key,…I'm gonna get all of these different overlays.…For this image I want a rule of thirds…and in camera I came pretty close to nailing this.…I want the gate in the middle and I want the image…to be segmented into thirds.…
Now, I can pick this up…and I can fine-tune it a little bit more if I want…and maybe that looks that much better.…As with everything I do in Lightroom,…this is nondestructive.…So if I commit this and I change my mind later,…I can always undo it.…You'll notice that when I take the crop tool,…the full image is actually sitting there.…Now, I don't know if you're able to see this,…but I see a little bit of a line here in the sky.…
