Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting adjustments with the Brush tool, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] After you've made global edits…that affect an entire photo…you may want to edit some individual parts of the photo too.…And you can do that using the Brush tool…here in the column on the right.…The Brush tool is great for painting in edits…wherever you want them.…It's very similar to two other tools…that we'll see later in this chapter,…the Linear Gradient and the Radial Gradient.…So the mechanics that I show you in this movie…will apply to those tools too.…I'll select the Brush tool by clicking on it…and that brings up this column of effects…that I can add to individual parts of the image.…
The effects are sticky…and so to set all the sliders back to zero to start…I'm going to right-click the title…of any one of these sliders and choose Reset All Sliders.…And then I'm going to drag the Exposure slider…over to the right, just so you can see where I'm painting.…And then I'll come into the image…and I'm gonna click and drag to paint.…Now notice that you can see a red mask.…You may not see this on your copy of Lightroom.…
