Selecting a Color from an Image in Lightroom

When using any of the Local Adjustment tools (Radial Filter, Graduated Filter, or Adjustment Brush), click in the Color swatch to choose a color from the Color Picker. To select a color from the image, first click in the color picker, then continue to hold the mouse down and drag over the image area to choose a color from the photo.


Note: applying color using the local adjustment tools is similar to adding a color wash, not a solid paint stroke (which would obscure details in the photograph). Adding color in this way can create a hand-colored look (similar to the traditional technique of applying colored pencils over on a B&W image).

Resetting the Local Adjustment tools in Adobe Camera Raw

Command + Option + R on Mac (Control + Alt + R on Win) will reset the sliders for the Local Adjustment Tools in Adobe Camera Raw. This shortcut will work regardless of whether you have a local correction selected or not.  (If you don’t have one selected, it’ll simply reset the sliders to zero for the “next” correction that you create.  Note that in ACR, attempting to create an “empty” correction will result in a warning dialog.)

You can also reset the sliders by right-clicking the pin in the preview area and choosing “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the popup menu, or choose the same entry from the flyout menu in the local correction pane.
