olor Grading for more control

New in Lightroom desktop and mobile

Lightroom now offers a robust color grading tool–three-way color wheels–which provides powerful color controls for shadows, midtones, and highlights at the same time. You can also adjust the overall color of your image using the Global control. Color Grading replaces Split Toning and provides more control to adjust colors in your image. Take your images to new creative heights by adjusting the color wheels in any combination to create subtle, vivid, complementary, or contrasting looks.

  1. In Lightroom desktop, import and open a photo in Detail view and click the Edit icon in the right panel.If you’re using Lightroom for iOS or Android, click the links below:

  2. Adjust the Blending slider to set the degree of overlap between shadows and highlights. Drag the slider towards the right to maximize the overlap and drag it to the left to minimize the overlap. Set the Balance slider to balance the effects between shadows, midtones, and highlights. You can also use the Balance slider to control the amount of shadows and highlights. Values greater than 0 will increase the effect of highlights and values less than 0 will increase the effect of the shadows.Note:The Color Grading panel replaces the Split Toning panel. To replicate the effect of Split Toning, simply set the Blending slider to 100 and adjust Shadows and Highlights.
  3. The last color wheel icon in the top row allows you to access the Global color wheel slider. This slider lets you change the overall color of the photo without affecting your previous color adjustments for shadows, midtones, or highlights.
