LR adjustment brush tool for processing images
Ok friends, let us talk about one of the Adobe Lightroom tool for a very controlled processing of photos. This tool is called adjustment brush tool.
So this is the image how the RAW image looked on the screen. So a normal feeling towards this would be ” Oh sh$* ” right ? But remember I shot this in RAW so there are HIDDEN details in it . you just have to bring the right one at right amount .
And this is the final image!
Interesting is it not ?

Let us start !
I improived the exposure by 1.59 and this was the result
Now I made it black and white by simply pressing “Y” or you can do that under treatpanel as well. And then made the highlights +77 ( not a rule, you can improve by any amount you desired and you feel is best for the image ) and the image now looked like this .
NOW it is brushing time!
Select adjustment brush tool or simply press ” K ” to open the brush properties and brush settings. Brush settings define the brush sizes etc and brush properties define what exactly brush paints exposure, color etc . I painted like this .
Second brush painting with the same properties
And I am ok with that . A little bit of clarity slider improvement will give me the result I think that is best suited for this image.
SO here is the final result .
Hope this helps. So always try something like this before you throw some images. Who knows you might get GOLD out of it !
