Ted’s Lightroom Tips: LIGHTROOM GRADUATED FILTER

Lightroom Graduated Filter and the Range Mask

Lightroom Graduated filter provides fabulous local adjustments. And for fine tweaking the effect, you can use the “RANG MASK.” 

In this video, I show you one of the many uses of the “RANGE MASK.”

1- Open an image in Lightroom Develop and apply all global adjustments as needed.

2- Select the “GRADUATED FILTER,” click on the image and drag to create the filter.

3- Adjust the exposure to tone down the highlight. (Ignore the effect on the subject. We will take care of it in the next step!) 

4- Go to the RANGE MASK and select the LUMINANCE from the dropdown menu. 

5- Click on the RANGE left slider and drag it to the right to adjust the dark part of the RANGE MASK.

6- Adjust the SMOOTHNESS to your liking.

That is all there is to it. Give it a try and let me know.
