Previewing the Effects of One Change

I love this one. Whenever I’m out teaching Lightroom it’s so cool to see some of the little things that get all of the nods in the audience (and sometimes spontaneous applause). Let’s say you make some changes in the HSL/Color/Grayscale panel (really, it could be any panel). Now you want to see what your photo looks like without those specific changes. But you don’t want to see just a Before/After view of everything – just those HSL changes. All you have to do is click that little square button in the top left corner of the panel to the left of the panel name. This turns the changes off and clicking on it again turns them back on. Look at the image in this post to see what I’m talking about. It’s small but I have to say it’s one of the features that I use constantly in Lightroom. Enjoy!
