    Lightroom mobile – editing using global slider adjustments

    Last week, we started editing using the Crop tool and Presets. This week, let’s learn the use the sliders themselves.

    The main Edit mode is broken down into a number of different sets of sliders, which you select from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.

    • Light includes Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites and Blacks, with an extra button to show the Tone Curve.
    • Color includes White Balance (Temperature and Tint), Vibrance and Saturation, with extra buttons for B&W and Color Mix.
    • Effects includes Clarity, Dehaze and Vignette, with access to Split Toning.
    • Detail includes Sharpening and Noise Reduction.
    • Optics allows you to toggle the default lens profile on and off.

    To move the sliders, drag the slider handle, or to show the clipping warnings, drag with 2 fingers instead of 1. To reset the sliders back to their default position, double tap on the slider handle.


    Wondering what all the sliders actually do? We’ll explain the sliders in more detail in an upcoming book (or my Lightroom CC/6 book, if you already use the desktop version), but here’s a quick summary, broken down by panel:





    These sliders are all global – they apply to the entire photo. Next week, we move onto editing selected sections of the photo.
