Lightroom HSL Color Picker

Adam Lerner May 22, 2012 Comments Off

In this video, I show you guys how to use the HSL color picker in Lightroom to get dramatic results with an otherwise boring sky. This function exists in Lightroom 3 and Lightroom 4, however I will be demonstrating in LR 4.

This may seem like a simple tool and it is! The cool thing is that you can selectively pump up or bring down color channels by specifically clicking on exact regions of your images. The results are instant and specific to that color channel, however you have to be mindful of other regions of your image as they too will be affected – especially skin tones.

Overall, there is no right and wrong to being creative with your edits. I try to not go too far overboard, however sometimes when you push the limits you end up with incredible results. So have fun and don’t be afraid to not only try using the HSL picker to either enhance or diminish specific color channels of your images to get stunning results.
