Lightroom Radial Filter Lighting Effects

November 2, 2015

The Radial Filter in Lightroom has been around for the past few versions, and as a local adjustment, it seems straightforward. Click and drag a circular area, and you can create a vignette – and the vignette doesn’t have to be centered in the image. However, the Radial Filter has a much broader capability as a creative tool. With its soft edges and configurable effects, you can create a variety of lighting effects. In this video, we take day to night and add some dramatic spotlight effects using the Radial Filter in Lightroom. [More]
