Using Lightroom for Portrait Retouching

Most photographers prefer Photoshop for portrait editing. However, Lightroom provides pretty good tools for doing a quick portrait retouching. Here is a tip for quick Lightroom Portrait Retouching:

.

1- Lightroom has the Global and Local Adjustments. For Portrait retouching, I use the Global adjustments to fix the issues for the entire image.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”26257″ img_size=”600×300″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Lightroom Global Adjustments”][vc_column_text]2- To remove large skin blemishes, I use the Lightroom Healing tool.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”26258″ img_size=”600×300″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Lightroom Healing Brush”][vc_column_text]3- The Lightroom Brush is a fabulous tool to apply the adjustments locally to the picture’s selected parts. I use the brush tool and the “SKIN SOFTENING” preset to soften the skin.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”26259″ img_size=”200×600″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Lightroom Brush Presets”][vc_column_text]4- Using the “TEETH WHITENING” preset allows me to remove colours from the teeth.
5- I use the “IRIS ENHANCE” preset to sharpen and whiten the eyes.
6- I usually use two new brushes to apply SHARPNESS and SATURATION to the mouth.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”26260″ img_size=”600×300″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Final Result “][vc_single_image image=”26261″ img_size=”600×300″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Final Result Zoomed”][vc_column_text]7- Finally, I use the EFFECTS tab to add a subtle VIGNETTE to the photo.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”26262″ img_size=”600×600″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”fadeIn” title=”Final Result “][vc_column_text]The creativity in image editing of Lightroom is endless.
