Command + Option (Mac) | Control + Alt (Win)-drag will duplicate local adjustments made with the Radial Filter, Gradient Filter and the Adjustment brush. Note: since local adjustment pins made with the Adjustment Brush cannot be moved, the dragging gesture is treated the same as clicking, which means both gestures (dragging or clicking) will duplicate the selected correction in place.

When using the Adjustment Brush in Adobe Camera Raw, Control -drag left/right to decrease/increase the brush size. Control + Shift -drag left/right to decrease/increase the feather (softness) of the adjustment brush’s edge.
To preview video faster in Photoshop, zoom out until the height of the canvas is less than 540 pixels. At this smaller preview size, Photoshop CS6 automatically plays and scrubs at lower resolution (and therefore faster).
In this video tutorial (Develop Module Advancements in Lightroom 4), you’ll learn how to create the highest quality photographs by taking advantage of new and improved global and local adjustments in the Lightroom 4 Develop module.
• Snapshots now auto name with a time/date stamp.
• The White Balance Selector Tool’s sample area is dependent on zoom level. (Zoom in to sample a smaller area.)
• Noise reduction adjustments are always displayed (regardless of the zoom viewed).
• The Navigator panels in both the Library and Develop Module have two new options for zooming 1:8 and 1:16.
• This one isn’t new, but when using the Adjustment Brush, clicking on the disclosure triangle to the right of “Effect” displays an amount slider to increase/decrease all of the adjustments applied to that adjustment at one time.
If you have painted in an adjustment to an image that changes multiple sliders, only to find that the overall effect is too much, place your cursor over the Pin for the Adjustment. The icon will change to a double headed arrow. Click -drag left/right on the pin (with the double headed icon) to increase/decrease all of the changes made to all sliders at once (this will be a relative change). This can be very useful when you think that the overall effect is what you want, but it’s just a bit too strong.
(For those of you that use Photoshop, you might want to think of this technique as similar to lowering the opacity of a layer – but I don’t want to confuse the issue if that analogy doesn’t work for you!)
When using the Adjustment brush, the Flow sets speed of the adjustment made when painting. For example, if you set the Exposure slider to +2 and then set the Flow down to 25 and paint in the image, you will notice that it takes a longer to build up that +2 stops than if you had left the Flow setting at 100 (eventually though, it will get there). A low Flow setting can help when trying to slowly dodge and burn in an area of an image.
The Density slider caps amount of change that can be applied with a paint stroke. If you set the Exposure slider to +2 and then set the Density down to 50, no matter how long you paint, you will never get more of a change than 1/2 of the +2 (or +1 stop). At first I thought why not just reduce the slider to cap the maximum amount, but then I realized that I can set the sliders at the highest point I need for the image, then prevent overdoing the adjustment by setting the density slider to cap the adjustment in certain areas.
Here are the shortcuts for the Adjustment Brush:
• Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) + “[“ or “]” increases/decreases brush size. Adding the Shift key increases/decreases feather (softness of the edge)
• 1-9 sets the Flow amount . Use 0 for 100%
• “A” toggles Auto Mask on/off.
• Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) toggles Adjustment Brush and Eraser tool.
• “/” (forward slash) toggles between brush A and B.
• Shift -drag constrains Adjustment Brush to a straight line.
• Tap Return to apply the brush and begin painting a new adjustment
• “O” Show/Hide Mask Overlay, Shift + O cycles Mask Overlay colors.
• “H” Hide/Show Pins.
And don’t forget, after choosing settings for a brush, you can save your new settings as a preset. To save a preset, at the top of the Adjustment Brush panel, click on the name of the currently selected preset (to the right of the word Effect) and choose Save Current Settings As New Preset form the drop down list.
In this Episode of the Complete Picture (Selective Coloring Techniques) I will explain two different methods for selectively colorizing an image to differentiate the subject from the background using Lightroom’s Develop module. Note: the same effects could be attained using Bridge/Adobe Camera Raw/Photoshop.
