Luminar Tip: The Magic of Color Balance

Here's my latest video about Luminar, demonstrating how to use the Color Balance filter.

I use this filter a lot.  It allows you to quickly and easily change color tones in a photo.  There are three color sliders and then three drop-down selections for tones (Shadows, Midtones, Highlights).  You simply choose which section of the tones you want to adjust, and then slide the color sliders accordingly.  

In any given photo, I may adjust only one section of tones or I might adjust all three.  It just depends on the photo and the outcome of my experiments with it.  I feel like that is what a lot of this comes down to: experimentation.  There is no formula for using this filter.  Just move things around until they are pleasing to your eye.  It's very simply yet powerful.  

Take a look at the video and let me know if you have any questions!

In this video I demonstrate the power of the Color Balance filter, which allows you to quickly, easily and significantly alter the color tones in a photo, taking a flat photo to a much more vibrant one in seconds. Want to experiment with Luminar?
