My latest article for CreativePro.com looks at a set of underrated editing tools in Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC: the gradient tools.
Most of the editing tools in Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC apply to an entire image, not selective portions of it.

And don’t forget, I cover these tools and more in my book Take Control of Lightroom CC is a 133-page ebook that covers everything you need to know about the new application (for Mac or Windows), and also includes a chapter on how to make Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC work together.
