Cropping corrections and level adjustments made easy
We don’t always nail the shot perfectly every time. On occasion our images are underexposed, or perhaps they’re overly bright. And the same can be true for our cropping and composition – sometimes it’s just a little bit off.
Shooting digitally has an advantage, , since you can crop an image after you’ve taken it. However, you should be aware that cropping into your images removes pixels – and thus reduces the size at which you can view and print your photos, because of the lower resolution.
Still, if you want to fix a wonky horizon or remove clutter from the scene, cropping in Lightroom is an efficient tool. We’ll look at aspect ratios, flipping crop orientation, and learning how to straighten up shots. We’ll also improve the composition so the prime focus is on your subject. So open up Lightroom, load a wonky photo, click on the crop tool icon in the top right and let’s get started.
