Bringing Back The Old Fill Light Slider in Lightroom 5

Back in Lightroom 3 (and earlier), the Basic panel in the Develop module used to have a Fill Light slider for opening up the darker shadow areas. It definitely worked. Even small adjustments opened up the shadows, but the slider was a little heavy handed and things got noisy in the shadows pretty quick.

Lightroom Video – Installing and Organizing Your Presets in Lightroom 5

When a new version of Lightroom comes out I always like to update the video on upgrading, installing and organizing your presets for Lightroom.
