Editing only certain parts of a photo?
« on: March 02, 2007, 07:08:03 PM »

I saw a quick tutorial somewhere on Lightroom 1.0 on the ability to edit only certain parts of a photo.  But now i cant find it.  Anyone have any idea how to do this?  I cant figure it out.  Thanks!

Not in Lightroom, maybe you mean using the targeted adjustment tool?

In the tone curve or saturation boxes, there's little icon in the top left of the box, click on that and as you move your cursor over the image, you'll see the point on the tone curve follow the curve depending on whether you're in shadows, midtones, hightlights etc.  You can left click on the image and drag the adjustment curve up or down at that relative point.

Other than that (which edits globally against a tonal range) the only local adjustments are the red eye and spot removal tools.

Just a note to saw it works with Tone, Hue, Saturation, Luminance and Greys. The shortcut keys for these are Cmd-Option-Shift with the start letter on Mac and Ctrl-Alt-Shift with the start letter on PC,
IE Cmd-Option-Shift-T for Tone curve on Mac.
