I Just Learned Something Important In Lightroom I Absolutely Did Not Know
This is one I definitely should have known, but absolutely did not (but of course, Rob Sylvan, Powerful Overlord of Lightroom Knowledge did).
Last week I did a post on why I use Lightroom’s Vibrance slider instead of the Saturation slider. So far, so good. However, in that post I mentioned I didn’t know why when it comes to using the Adjustment Brush, there is no Vibrance slider, only a Saturation slider. Luckily, one of my readers (Craig), wrote a comment that blew my mind. He wrote:
Rob, answered Craig back, “yup” and I was like “Heck — I never knew that.” I love learning new stuff, and I wanted to make sure you guys got that info, too. So, a big thank you to Craig and Rob for passing that on. It’s a great way to head into the weekend. 🙂
I’m up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the Big Air Show (the biggest in the US). We just got in tonight (I was up in Maine for a family vacation — my first real trip since Jan of 2020), and I caught a flight to Chicago and drove with my buddy to Wisconsin, and well…let’s more to share next week.
Have a great weekend everybody. 🙂
Doesn’t that just flip the question? Why is there no positive saturation slider? Why should the behavior of that one slider be so confusing?
I don’t know but in my copy of Lightroom Clasic I am not seeing any indication that this is happening. What am I missing?
Well, there is no indication on the slider itself (though it might be helpful), it is just the way it behaves. As you increase (positive value) it behaves like Vibrance and as you decrease (negative value) it behaves like Saturation.
Thanks. That’s what I thought might be happening. They need to add something to show that is what is happening. I’m sure unless you read this here you would never know what is going on with this slider and most people don’t know about it.
You are right about that (just ask Scott). 🙂
Happy to help! I think I picked that up from Benjamin Warde at some point. 🙂
