Friday Tip – Upsizing in Lightroom

I was just looking through a copy of Mikkel Aaland’s Photoshop Lightroom Adventure and I learned a cool tip that made me think of upsizing in a different way.

Lightroom Q&A

I received an interesting question today and thought I would share it with you: QuestionIs there a way in Lightroom of achieving the colour boost (PoP) that we use in Photoshop in LAB mode where we adjust the A and B channels by steepening the curve gradient. In other words – how can we achieve the same ‘popping’ effect in Lightroom without the need to go across into Photoshop? - Thanks in anticipation of your...
