Learn about adjusting the preset result to produce the perfect image
- [Instructor] We could use the basics controls…to fine tune the effects we got…using the presets.…So we could tap and increase the local contrast,…and that increases the HDL effect.…We could use tone compression to balance that…by taking down the extra brightness…that that produces.…We could increase the whole exposure of the scene.…
We can set the black point darker and brighter,…and we can change the brightness.…We can also have a look…at increasing the contrast, although…this does tend to make it oversaturated…and to darken the shadows too much.…And we could play around with the saturation…and the vibrance controls…to get the effect we want.…We can use the white balance…to warm up the image or to cool it down.…
Let's make it a little bit warmer.…And if we want, we could add some tint to this.…So we could make it slightly magenta,…or slightly green by dragging that slider.…The shadows are looking too dark,…well we can just boost them a little bit,…and we could also take the brightness…of the highlights down slightly.…
