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 told me that in Local Adjustments Saturation on the plus side [dragging right] is vibrancy and minus [dragging left] is desaturation.


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. 🙂
