In Lightroom Classic, the “Split-Toning” panel has been replaced by a new “Color Grading” module. We’ll take a look at how it works and why you may want to use it for more than just traditional split-toning effects.

Understanding and using Camera Profiles for Image Editing

This week, we are discussing an oft-overlooked feature of some RAW editing software tools: Camera Profiles.
