Practical Photography (UK) - - Photoshop Geniius -

Im­port your RAW file into Light­room by go­ing to the Li­brary tab and click­ing Im­port. Nav­i­gate your way to the im­age you’d like to edit us­ing the Source panel and hit Im­port. Now change to the De­velop tab at the top of the in­ter­face. Click on the Lens Cor­rec­tions panel, and un­der Pro­file make sure En­able Pro­file Cor­rec­tions is ticked. Click on the Crop Tool and draw a crop over your im­age. Hit Re­turn to set it in place. Click on the Ba­sic panel to ex­pand it and pull the Ex­po­sure slider un­til your shot looks cor­rectly ex­posed. You can then set Con­trast to +10, Clar­ity to +10, Vi­brance to +35 and Sat­u­ra­tion to +5. It’s also worth tweak­ing the High­lights, Shad­ows, Blacks and Whites slid­ers to fi­nesse your con­trast.

Above A crop is the eas­i­est way to make your sub­ject larger in the frame so it ap­pears more dom­i­nant.
