Adobe Lightroom expert Dan Moughamian describes the new Smart Preview concept available in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5. Smart Previews provide photographers with the means to “develop” their imported raw pictures, even when the computer they’re using is not directly connected to those pictures. You’ll see how easy it is to create these previews, and then integrate them into your workflow.
You can use the Radial Filter tool—new in Lightroom 5—to create off-center custom vignettes, amongst other effects, by applying local adjustments to a selected area in an image through a feathered elliptical mask.
Adobe Lightroom expert Dan Moughamian shows how the enhanced Spot Removal Brush in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 can clone or heal regions of pixels using the traditional “spot mode,” as well as the new freehand brush strokes. This enables a more natural, Photoshop-like workflow when retouching odd-shaped spots, linear groupings of pixels, and other challenges.
