Taking Control of Your Photos With Lightroom Mobile

 Taking Control of Your Photos With Lightroom Mobile

Whether you’re a photographer, a digital artist or just someone who likes to play around with pictures, you can use Lightroom Mobile to help you take control of your photos. The Lightroom Mobile application is available for iOS and Android devices, and it can be used to edit images with basic editing tools such as cropping and color grading. You can also use the app to create panoramas, take advantage of smart previews, sync presets and mark clipping areas.

Color grading

Using color grading is a great way to add a finishing touch to your images. However, it’s important to get the base of the image right before applying any color grading adjustments. This includes getting a good white balance, calibration, and tint.

Color grading can improve the light in your images. You can also use it to create visual conventions. By applying specific hues to your images, you can create a consistent look throughout your portfolio or social media feeds.

Lightroom’s color grading tool uses three color wheels with sliders beneath each. You can make global adjustments with the global wheel or local adjustments with the local wheels.

The color wheels are easier to use than sliders. Clicking the handle anywhere on the wheel engages a soft constraint mode. If you move the handle away from a hue, you’ll break the constraint. However, you can still use the handle to make the same adjustment.

Marking clipping areas

Using clipping in Lightroom Mobile can be a useful tool to help you create more pleasing photos. Clipping occurs when Lightroom detects that the image contains less digital information. This results in a blown out highlight, shadow, or other area.

Lightroom Mobile offers two ways to determine whether or not you’ve clipped your photo. One method is the histogram. The histogram shows the percentages of red, green, and blue in your image. It may be misleading at the edges, but it’s still a good way to check.

A second method involves a mouse click. If you hover the mouse over a triangle in the top right corner of the histogram, it will show you the clipping in the hovered area. This is a more accurate way to check whether or not you’ve clipped your image.

The histogram also offers a few other fun facts. For example, a histogram can show you that your image is over-exposed. This can be important for making sure that you don’t blow out any bright parts of your image.

Smart Previews

Unlike Lightroom Classic, Lightroom Mobile stores your photos differently. It preloads two pictures to either side of the current picture. This can be useful for viewing a group of selected images.

While it might be difficult to identify faces from a distance, Lightroom can still make the task easier. It does this by displaying a few photos of the same person. These are displayed under the ‘Unnamed People’ heading.

Using the smart search feature, Lightroom CC can identify the location of a photo by using the metadata it collects. Lightroom CC also allows you to import GPX files, which are files that contain location information. You can also use the GeoSetter feature to apply location data to photos.

Lightroom CC also comes with a feature that lets you submit images to the Adobe Stock Contributor Site. You can do this from the Develop module. You can also choose to keep all synced photos in the All Synced Photographs folder. This means you can work on photos from different devices.

Syncing presets

Syncing presets with Lightroom Mobile is a great way to apply presets to your photos. You can use presets on your desktop or laptop and on your mobile device. However, there are some differences.

First, you need to have a desktop or laptop version of Lightroom CC. You also need to have a Creative Cloud account. You will also need to have the same Adobe ID for both devices.

Next, you need to create a preset on your mobile device. You can do this by selecting the “Edit” option from the presets panel. This will open a new screen that will allow you to name the preset and to customize it. You can also add the preset to a preset group.

After creating a preset, you need to sync it with your Lightroom mobile app. The easiest way to do this is to use the cloud. However, you can also use other methods to transfer presets.
