Editor’s Note For complete coverage of the new Lightroom 5.2 features click here.
There have been many times when I’ve used Lightroom’s adjustment brush to its maximum use. In other words I’m getting positive changes, but I’ve hit the highest value on the slider. In the past, I’d need to paint paint another mask on and apply those settings again.
This also comes into play when I take a two pass approach. For example, I’ll use the settings two times at less than maximum when softening skin, in order to maintain better realism. This takes time, especially if I had to paint a particularly intricate mask.
But hey… no more wasting time! Lightroom’s new 5.2 update allow you to simply duplicate the mask in place and then have fresh controls over it. I love it. I recorded a video to show you exactly why I’m so excited.
