Lightroom Landscape Editing

A Guide to Lightroom Landscape Editing Basics

Landscape editing can be as simple as a few clicks or as complicated as taking hours to create a masterpiece. This article covers some general steps to speed up your Lightroom Landscape editing! 

How to Edit Landscape Images in Lightroom

This step-by-step guide helps you to create a healthy workflow for your global landscape editing:

1- Sharpness 

Zoom to 100% and check the photo to ensure it is not blurry.

2- Checking the Profile

For editing the Raw images, Lightroom offers several Profiles, from Adobe Color to the camera’s specific colour profiles. If you shot your photos in Raw format, it is the best practice to change the colour profile to Adobe Landscape in Lightroom. The profile is limited to Color or Black and White for Jpgs.

3- White Balance

After changing the profile, it is time to check the white balance and make the adjustments. In many cases, the Auto white balance is a good starting point.

Lightroom Landscape Editing brings pictures to an artistic level.


The Texture, Clarity, and Dehaze sliders are here to help you set the appearance of the images. Use them cautiously, as they can easily ruin the look of photos.

6- Denoise

Shooting at high ISO can result in unwanted noise to our images. The new Lightroom Denoise is a powerful tool to clean up noisy photos.
