Mas­ter the re­vamped Color panel in Light­room CC 2018

some­times, even af­ter lots of prepa­ra­tion with the white bal­ance and colour set­tings in-cam­era, your fi­nal photo can lack punch. This could come down to a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent fac­tors in­clud­ing light­ing con­di­tions, lens flare or in­nate lim­i­ta­tions in the image sen­sor. It’s handy, then, that you can ad­just colour in such a pow­er­ful way us­ing the handy Light­room CC 2018.

The Color panel is laid out in an in­tu­itive way that makes it easy for even the begin­ner to nav­i­gate. From the top we see White Bal­ance, Vi­brance and Sat­u­ra­tion. In Light­room CC 2018 we also have a re­design of the Color Mixer, which makes it eas­ier to se­lec­tively ad­just the Hue, Sat­u­ra­tion and Lu­mi­nance set­tings of any in­di­vid­ual colour chan­nel as you wish.

If you get stuck, Adobe has even thrown in sim­ple an­i­ma­tions that ap­pear when you hover the cur­sor over the names of the slid­ers. So let’s take a look at how we can make this macro shot re­ally sing for us…
