Lightroom Tip: The Color Sampler Tool

You’ll notice a few tools in Lightroom that have a Color Picker built right inside of them. One place is in the Split Toning panel in the Develop module. Also, the Graduated Filter, Adjustment Brush and Radial filter all have them so you can paint or target a specific part of the photo to have a color tint added to it.

It’s one of those keyboard shortcuts that’s become second nature for me, but I run in to folks all the time that didn’t know about it. See, Lightroom has official Before/After buttons at the bottom left of your photo (while in the Develop module). Here’s a screen capture to show you where they are. (click to see image...

The Secret Cropping Tip To Go From Horizontal To Vertical

Knowing how to crop a horizontal image into a vertical one, or vice versa, has been this little secret among Lightroom users for a while now. It’s one of those things that, while it is indeed in a menu, it’s not something that would ever jump out at you. So here’s the secret. When you’re in Crop mode (the keyboard shortcut is R), all you have to do is press the letter X and it’ll switch your crop...
