Working with Tone and exposure in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

By Chris Orwig

Adobe Systems has graciously provided some clips for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. These particular clips feature host Chris Orwig. In this movie, host Chris Orwig discusses image tone. In this clip, he works on an image of a rock that has a bit too much exposure.

He looks at the histogram and adjusts the exposure via the exposure slider, and shows you how to use the numbers as well as clicking and dragging on the Histogram to bring back detail in the image.

 He also saturates the image with color using the color sliders and tweaks the lens vignetting. He then moves into the Develop module to show you how to speed up your workflow.
