View Full Version : Lightroom's neat and easy little trick

25th September 2015, 03:42 AM
too many hassles to add the jpg files I have added to other forums so no photos; sorry

I read about this some time ago and thought I should pass it onto those who do not know about this neat and easy little trick to add more zapp/colour (for the want of a better word) to our photos.
Basically we just adjust the blue primary colour (saturation) in camera calibrations.

I have 4 presets for 100%/50%/25% and 00 so it's just a case try each out to see if it works on the photo/s being edited

I'm not saying it's better or worse; it's just something we can try and it can work on some portrait photos also. With some experimenting with the primary colours you may well find that different look you are dreaming about

The Blue channel normally contains more digital noise than the red and green channels. Love to see one of your before and afters.

I occasionally use this technique in PS:


It works well.
