What's new in Lightroom? Masking & More
Unleash the power of the latest Lightroom Updates
Shorten your workflow time and create impactful images with the new lightroom updates!  Recent updates to Lightroom in the last 9 months have significantly improved what you can do within this program to enhance your images.
Learn How To:
•    Use intelligent masking technology to enhance your images with options based on luminance, color range, gradients, radials and even AI-selected subjects and skies
•    Manage mask layers to work together (add, subtract, invert or intersect) and create stunning results
•    Implement a step-by-step process to simplify your editing workflow using these new features, even creating presets to use these new masking features
•    Save time and do more in Lightroom and less in Photoshop
These updated features have helped Kimberly take her editing in Lightroom to a whole new level... it's faster, simpler and requires her to rarely use Photoshop for event photography anymore. Let Kimberly show you how to use these new features to enhance your Lightroom editing process, making it fast, simple & much more enjoyable.
