How To Do a Complete Portrait Retouch In Lightroom 5

The Develop module has come a long way in Lightroom 5 and with the addition of the Radial Filter and non-circular Spot Removal Tool I now feel comfortable enough to do a complete portrait retouch in Lightroom. Since all of the adjustments are in the Develop Module the entire process is completely non-destructive.

 

I’m honored…

I’m also very honored to have made it into the About Lightroom credits screen. It’s an honor to have my name on such a fantastic product!

    Thanks for the post and guide, I shot a wedding Saturday and am using LR5 to process, it certainly is an improvement, but without any sense of needing to relearn anything. I love how the changes are made so natural that you almost immediately forget it wasn’t always like that.
