Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Selective editing with linear Gradients, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] In the last movie,…we took a look at the Radial Gradient tool.…In this movie, we'll look at a very similar tool,…the Linear Gradient tool.…Both of these tools can be used…to apply one or more effects to part of a photo.…The Linear Gradient tool does that in a pattern…that fades out from one side of a gradient to the other.…So I'm going to go ahead and select the Linear Gradient tool…which is over here on the right,…and that brings up a column of settings…which are the same settings that we saw…for the Radial Gradient tool.…
I'm just going to leave the sticky settings…that were here before, and I'm going to add one more,…which is to drag Exposure over to the left…so that you can see what happens…when I create my first Linear Gradient in this image.…I'd like to use this gradient…to make the sunset more prominent in the sky,…so I'm gonna start in the sky and drag down.…You can see that that decrease in exposure,…along with all the other settings,…are causing the top of the image to be dark,…and then those effects fade out through this gradient…
