How to Use Lightroom’s Color Mixer

It’s named the Color Mixer in Lightroom CC (the Cloud version), and simply the Color Panel in Lightroom Classic, and the video above (from Adobe’s own Michelle Wei & Josh Haftel), shows how to adjust individual colors using the panel. NOTE: Their tutorial is using Lightroom CC (the cloud version), but the HSL / Color Panel works the same way in Lightroom Classic, but the interface looks slightly different (click...

What Version of Lightroom Are You Using?

Answering Lightroom Help Desk questions for KelbyOne has gotten more challenging since Adobe dropped the “CC” from the names of all Lightroom products last month.
