Viewing LAB color values in the histogram

In this movie, I want to simply point out and highlight another new feature and it's a feature which allows us to display information when we position the cursor over our images. Currently, I'm in the Develop module and I have the Histogram visible. If I hover over the image, you see that we can see the RGB values right here. Again as I position the cursor over the image, we can see different RGB values. We can also now see values from the lab color space. This is the largest color space; its gamut exceeds those of the RGB and CMYK color models and so that's one of the reasons why this lab color space is so helpful.

In order to access that information, position the cursor over the Histogram then right-click or Ctrl+Click, here simply choose Show Lab Color Values, then position the cursor over the image and as I do that you can see that we have those lab colors displayed in this area right here.
