Cropping and Image Sizing Panel
In this Lightroom Mobile tutorial, you will learn how to straighten a horizon. Tap on the straighten tool to instantly create a straight horizon. Then tap the round slider in the image to rotate the image. Choose the aspect ratio of the image in the first menu option on the left. You can go and change the aspect ratio at any time. Tap the rotate buttons to rotate the image 90 degrees.
If you have a photo of a building that has a strange perspective you can adjust it in the “geometry tool”. Tap on the guided option to see the perspective shift options. Auto usually does a great job but if you want to manually adjust it yourself tap on the guided option. Next, you will tap on the line that is not straight and slide to create a line on the bottom of the building. Then do the same for the top. After you are finished tap on the Done button to see the straight building. Please note that this feature is not free on lightroom, you'll need to upgrade to the premium version to use this feature.
Have you ever zoomed into an image and seen that there was a magenta and green glow around an object. This coloring problem is called fringing because it looks like the image is slightly glowing. To fix that tap on optics and choose to remove chromatic aberration. This will remove the magenta and green glow from the image.
Sharpen the Detail
The first thing you’ll need to do before sharpening a photo is to zoom in to see the detail in the photo. Use the “detail panel” to adjust the sharpening slider. Start by adjusting the slider to the right. Once you adjust your sharpening tool additional sharpening panels will light up. Sharpening looks for edges between objects and creates a gray line between.
The best way to enhance the detail in Lightroom Mobile is to move the sharpening tool to the right. Then move the radius down to 1.0 or smaller so you can see the effect. The last step is to then decrease the sharpening slider to a reasonable level. The detail slider enhances the detail in the image. The masking tool creates a mask on places that may have the detail that is not needed in the photo This can be the added detail to a wall. If you tap on the image as you slide then you can see a black and white outline of the photo. If you see specs in the wall then you are sharpening in the photo. The purpose of sharpening is not to fix a blurry image.
How to Reduce Noise
If you notice specks of color or black and white specs on your image. That is called noise and often happens with photos taken at night. If you see some spots of black and white noise in an image. You can adjust the noise under the “detail options”. Use the noise reduction slider to adjust the black and white specs, and go deeper by adjusting the detail and contrast. To fix the color noise use the color noise reduction tool. You’ll want to adjust the noise before you fix the sharpening or you will increase the noise in the image.
That's all for today guys, final episode drops tomorrow.
