Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting white balance, part of Learning Lightroom 5.

It explores how to make local adjustments with the Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, Graduated Filter, and Spot Removal tools. The course ends with a look at the most commonly used Lightroom features for sharing photos: exporting, printing, and sharing online.
