This is the second part of an ongoing guide to interpreting images using Adobe Lightroom. Our last instalment talked about the environment which you can access here. This current instalment talks about possibly the most important panel to understand for the broad processing of images within Lightroom. For all it's importance, it isn’t particularly clear how it works beyond the obvious. Our video talks about how to use the panel but we wanted to investigate what the controls are actually doing in some more detail.
