Ted’s Lightroom Tips: Lightroom Simple Workflow

Lightroom Simple Workflow for Editing Raw Files

There are many different ways to edit Raw files. I have noticed that this Lightroom Simple Workflow works perfectly on many images.

I used the Lightroom Simple workflow to edit this picture.

Ted’s Lightroom Simple Workflow:

This workflow is for Lightroom Classic, and you can modify and use it in other editing applications.

Start with the BASIC panel by adjusting the TONE, i.e. Exposure, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, and Blacks. I usually change the Contrast if the photo needs to be more or less contrasty. 

Next, go to the PRESENCE tab to adjust Texture, Clarity, Dehaze, Vibrance, and Saturation.
A Quick Tip:
If there are persons in the picture, I don’t use saturation and clarity. I prefer using Vibrance and Texture instead.

After Applying the Lightroom Simple Workflow, picture looks awesome.

After finishing with the above adjustments, look at the colours to ensure that the White Balance is correct.
And for the last step, I adjust the composition using the CROP tool.
