In this video we’ll take a look at one of my favorite (and semi-hidden) color adjustments in Lightroom. We’ll even dive in to the nuts and bolts of how it differs from other color adjustments so you can really see where it’s best used.

Thankyou – always learning something new
Seems you can do this in Classic, me not investigating enough.
Why wasn’t this in the Lightroom course?
Another useful, but previously unknown hint to improve our photography. Thank you Matt for being so very generous with your knowledge and experience.
Excellent. Precise information spoken at the right pace to help me learn. Thank you.
Very Cool Matt
your good Matt I follow you on Kelly one
Thanks Matt! I have learned so much from your videos!
Always useful information! Thanks Matt!
I always learn something new with your tutorials. Great information and well explained. Thank you Matt.
Great information as always! Thank you, Matt
Thank you, Matt! As with all of your tutorials and courses, this was well done and informative.
Very well presented. Thanks a lot. It does make a difference to the final look of the photo.
So good, Matt! I certainly hadn’t really noticed that colour tool in the adjustment tools, and am so grateful to have it explained.
Matt, your tutorials are really excellent! Simply explained and you always come with something new in Lightroom! This color adjustment tool that I didn’t know is really great and will help me with my icebergs photos in the very same situation of the picture you used to explain. Your voice is also pleasant, you are not repetitive and you are concise.
Many thanks for this great explanation
Hi Matt, cool video. One question; when would you use the new Hue adjustment slider (use fine adjustment)?
Hi Dave. I’d use it for changing one color to another “hue” color. Honestly, for me, it’s not that useful though.
Great video Matt. As Jackie Gleason used to say, ” You are the Greatest”
As always, these sessions are clear and reveal more and more the power we have with Lightroom. Thanks, Matt!
Brilliant! Thanks, Matt.
You’re a LR black belt! 😉
Excellent tip Matt. Thanks
You never cease to amaze me. THANK YOU I could never get that filter straight.
Thanks, Matt. I sure appreciate all your helpful hints. Am working on your Lightroom System now–lots of stuff I didn’t know.
Excellent tip. Thanks, Matt.
As always well explained……. a ton of information and well presented. Another tool to add to my repertoire…. Thanks, Matt.
As always, straight to the point with helpful and useful information. Thanks Matt!
Thanks Matt. I don’t always make it to the bottom of panel in LR and learned something new.
Thanks Matt, always thought it would be nice to be able to pick a colour from the photo in that tool, and there was but I didn’t know it till now!
One addendum to Matt’s post – if you click inside the colour box with the colour picker tool and (holding down the mouse) drag outside the box, you can pick a colour from anywhere in the image… BUT, if you’re running Lr in a window, you can drag the colour picker tool to another window (say Ps or Id or whatever) and sample a colour from Anywhere on your screen.
Appreciate the tip and all other tips. I am curious, though. How did you find this method? Is there a secret manual? Trial and error? I would never have found it.
Hi Kent. It’s been there for a long time and I’m a big fan of the brush and gradient tools so it’s just something I found years ago. Thanks!
Thanks for the great tutorial. I’m going to try this technique on some photos I recently took on San Juan Island, Washington.
Really educational. Understand the use of the gradient and the color tools so much better now. Thanks!
Thanks, Matt. I know this will come in handy.
thanks Matt for taking the time to keep us all in the loop with so man helpful videos. Great job!
Another great little video power-packed with hidden details. Thank you!!
Great video thank you Matt
As always, very helpful! Thanks….
Absolutely great video. Unlike most,where instructor is zooming over the controls too quickly to follow, this actually is INSTRUCTION. Loved it.
Thanks Matt! Just what I need to know today, 10 minutes well spent
Great tip. Never thought about using the color swatch to change overall tone of photo.
Thanks a lot I really appreciate with this tutorial
Great tool. Thanks, Matt. You always make it look easy.
Fantastic timing…this video solved an issue I struggled with this morning….of picking a colour from an image.
Those last two bits were new to me. Thanks for a clear, articulate lesson.
Thanks Matt, love learning all of your tips and tricks…
thanks for this info.
Got a bit lost on the last hint about picking color ow swatch -not sure if it applies to photo or pichs from photo.
Will try it out
Matt – another well done and informative as all of your videos are! Thanks.
Thank you, Matt!
Nicely explained Matt.
