Lightroom Adjustment Brush and Graduated Filter Tip

Happy Friday everyone! Here’s a great little tip for you that got lots of “ooooooos” in my seminar the other day. When you’re using the Adjustment Brush or Graduated Filter, you’ll often adjust 3, 4 or even more sliders. But then you’ll go to use it again and you don’t want all of those same adjustments again – maybe you only want to adjust 1 slider this time. Of course manually resetting each slider to 0 is a pain right? Instead try this: At the very top left of the panel you’ll see the word Effect (circled in the graphic here). Just double click on it and it’ll automatically reset everything to 0 for you. Not bad eh? :)

Have a great weekend!
