It's not a secret that I love Lightroom; it's such a powerful photo editor and one of my favorite features is the fact that you can make changes locally in an image. Meaning, you can just make changes to a portion of the image instead to the whole image. The brush tool comes in super handy to apply changes in areas where you want extra detail or contrast.
I've been using this brush I call Carved to add extra sharpens and clarity, with just a hint of contrast. I love to use on my flower photography; it makes the petals extra crispy and vibrant. It's free for you to play.
Hey, but I never installed a brush before! How do I do that?
