Lightroom Tips

Tip – Changing Direction of the Graduated Filter

Here’s a tip I picked up from Scott Kelby recently. If you’re dragging a Graduated filter gradient on to your photo you can quickly change the direction of the gradient by pressing the apostrophe key. For example, if you drag from the top of the photo toward the bottom, whatever effects you’ve got set will appear at the top and gradiate downward. However, if you press the apostrophe key you can reverse it. It also works after you’ve already created a gradient. Just target the little meatball dot that appears on your photo and try pressing apostrophe and Lightroom will reverse the gradient there too. Cool little tip huh? Thanks Scott!

Well, I hope you all have a great weekend. I’m in the airport now heading to Philadelphia (and New Jersey) to run a half marathon with my brother and sister this weekend. Wish me luck!
