Exposure’s Easy-to-Use Local Adjustments for Photo Editing

By | |Tutorials, Exposure|

Local or localized adjustments are editing refinements that are selectively applied to your images. Applying changes locally greatly expands your abilities for creative control during editing. Using local adjustments will benefit you during many stages of your workflow, and it enables you to transition into more advanced editing.

This video tutorial demonstrates how to make local adjustments in Exposure. You can use them to apply editing adjustments, or any of Exposure’s presets, only to the areas you designate. And you can seamlessly blend any of the edits you make.

Learn how to integrate using local adjustments in your editing workflow in the video, below.
