You can now tweak basic settings here, something that you had to do in Lightroom first before exporting in previous versions. All necessary functionality is available: Basic tab The Color tab The colour filters will add tones to an image, just like placing a coloured filter in front of your lens. A red or orange filter can smoothen skin tones, reducing the appearance of blemishes.
Blue filters, on the other hand, are very efficient at darkening the image and enhancing the appearance of haze and mist. In colour photography, these filters will add the specified colour tone across the entire picture. The Preserve Luminosity checkbox prevents radical changes in brightness of your image. Color tab The Tone Curve tab Toning is a processing technique from the dark room development days. Using chemicals, the coloration of an image is changed.
Split toning uses multiple tones in this development process. Tone Curve tab The Focus tab You can apply sharpening or soft focus here. The Lens Warp simulates the distortion caused by lenses at the edges of the image. Focus tab The Grain tab Modern cameras use higher ISO values for increased sensitivity to light, introducing different kinds of ugly digital noise.
Analogue film did the same, but as it is analogue added more eye-pleasing grain. Since we are used to seeing this in images, some photographers prefer adding some texture to their images for a more analogue look. Grain tab Infrared IR tab This tab lets you imitate the look created by using monochrome infrared film. This customization includes control over Distortion and Lump Size that modify the shape of the vignette. But all are very customizable, and you can now even import your own.
