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 advice.

AnswerGeoff. There is no equivalent to that move in Lightroom. Lightroom edits in the ProPhoto RGB color space only. You can’t change it. So you’ll definitely need to go over into Photoshop to recreate that effect. Thanks!
