Creative Curves

I don't need to tell you that Lightroom is full of powerful and exciting features. One of the more misunderstood tools is the curves panel. Many users avoid the curves panel altogether. This isn't new to Lightroom. For years users have struggled with curves in Photoshop.

Lightroom gives you access to a parametric curve, a point curve, and, most recently, individual RGB channel curves! If you haven't played with these powerful tools now is the time to start! I had the pleasure of writing the Lightroom Feature article for the May/June 2013 edition of Photoshop User Magazine. I've included a link to the PDF for the full article below so feel free to download it and enjoy!
