If you just want to make some quick edits to your images, you can do so by editing the metadata. To do this, you need to go to the Library module. You can go to the Library module by pressing the small arrow icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Use the Develop module.
Once your photos are imported, you can start editing them. To do basic editing, you can use the Develop module. The Develop module is also where you can perform color adjustments. To access the Develop module, click on the Grid view icon in the lower left-hand corner of the screen to enter Grid view. Then, click the button next to the folder that contains your photos. You can also press Ctrl+E on your keyboard to enter the Develop module.
Crop to remove unwanted areas.
Now that you’ve removed the unwanted areas, you can start the editing process. If you have the RAW file, open it in Lightroom. If you don’t have the RAW file, import it as a JPEG. You can also import it as a TIFF. To do this, click File and then Import. Choose the file you want to import. Choose the folder where you want to store the image. TIFF files have higher quality than JPEGs, but larger file sizes. If you are working on a large number of images, it may be a good idea to convert them all to JPEGs.
Use the Clone Stamp tool.
In addition to copying and duplicating images, the clone stamp tool can be used for quick editing. Use the Clone Stamp tool to make changes like brightness and contrast, color balance, and exposure. The tool works best on areas of your photo that are relatively uniform so that you don’t end up transferring color from one area of your photo to another.
Use the Healing tool.
There are two main editing tools in Lightroom: the Crop tool and the Heal tool. The Crop tool lets you crop an area of your image to the size you want. The Heal tool can fix areas of an image that are too bright or too dark. It can also remove red-eye. To use the Heal tool, first select the area you want to fix. If the area is blurry, press and hold down the Shift key while you click the area. Doing this will allow you to click a different area to refine the selection. To remove spots or red-eye, simply click the spot and press Delete.
Use the Content Aware Move tool.
Editing in Lightroom is easy. Once you’ve exported your images to your computer, locate the images you want to edit in your library. To do this, click the Grid view in the Library section of the sidebar. Then, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the images you want to view. Once there, press down on an image and click the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner. This will bring up the editing panel. To start editing the photo, click the Edit button in the top left corner.
Use the History panel.
To make basic edits, use the History panel. To access the History panel, press the F9 key while viewing your photos. You can then navigate through the images by using the up and down arrows (or left and right arrows on a trackpad) and change the settings for any photo.
Use the Library module.
When you first open a photo, the grid view will show you thumbnails of your images. To view the full-size image, click on the photo you want to edit. This will display the image in the view and you can perform basic editing in the grid view. To return to editing in the library view, click on the grid icon at the bottom left of the screen.
If you’re not familiar with the basics of editing your photos, you’ll want to start by learning about a few of the tools used in the software. For example, you’ll want to learn how to change the color and exposure of your photos, remove red-eye, and crop your images. While this may sound simple, learning the ins and outs of these tools can help you edit your photos faster and more efficiently, and may even help you get better images in the first place.
