Last week, we learned to use the Linear and Radial Selection tools. This week, the brush allows you to apply edits to specific areas of the photo. It works well with a finger, but even better with the Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro. Here’s the instructions for all of the mysterious icons!
There’s no spot removal or similar retouching tools in Lightroom mobile, but you can open photos directly into another photo app by tapping the Share menu. The Edit In option opens the photo into Adobe Fix to use Liquify or Healing or Adobe Mix to cut out, combine and blend images using layers. Selecting Open In displays a selection of other installed apps that can accept photos, for example, iPhoto or Photoshop Express.
Next week, we’ll tie it all together and try editing a couple of photos from start to finish using a range editing tools.
