Heal Tool

  • There was a yellow plaque on the gate so I used the Heal Tool to remove it with a size of 37 and 0 feather.

What I love about the edit is the warm tones…. the golden path and vivid green leaves. It is amazing what the HSL Panel can do.

I do hope these workflow posts are helping you to experiment in Lightroom. Until next time, happy editing!
