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. But if you wanted a fake HDR photo it was pretty good With the new sliders and revamped Basic panel that came in Lightroom 4, the Fill Light slider was replaced by Shadows (which makes sense). Well, one of the complaints I heard was that the Shadows slider wouldn’t let people open up the shadows as much as the Fill Light slider did. So I did a quick video to show you how to get the old Fill Light back if you wanted to. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
