One of Lightroom’s simplest features is also one of its most useful: the before/after functionality. However, this goes much deeper than simply switching back and forth between edited and unedited versions of a photo. This great video tutorial will show you how to get the most out of the feature, as well as a nifty hidden trick that makes it all more useful.
Coming to you from Anthony MorgantiThis helpful video tutorial will show you detailed information about the before / after function in Lightroom. I have to admit I never knew about the ability to use the History panel to place pre-reference preferences, which makes it quite useful depending on how you edit your photos. I use this function almost continuously as I edit. It is very important to keep track of how far you are pushing an image, although this can be harder than you think, as it is very easy to get a bit of tunnel vision in the process. Skimming quickly between edited and unedited versions is a great way to keep a close eye on this. Watch the video above for a full rundown from Morganti.
