Duplicating Local Adjustments in Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom Classic

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.

    Are the local adjustment Effect settings able to be copied from an adjustment brush to the new radial filter or vice_versa?

      Yes and no. After loading the local tool with the desired adjustments click the drop down menu and save the settings as a preset. Then move to the other adjustment tool and this preset will be available.

    Would you consider doing a short tutorial on how to do this? I am using windows and haven’t been successful.

    Or if you have already covered this in a tutorial would you tell me which one so I can re watch it.

    Thanks so much!
