Creative color processing

Trends and styles in photography have been heavily influenced by special ways of processing photos, and until very recently, these effects were all done in the wet darkroom. But Lightroom provides far more control and flexibility than any photographers working in the darkroom could have ever hoped for.

That said, there are certain photographic processing styles that have endured for decades; some since the earliest days of photography. These can be reproduced in Lightroom; instructions for simulating some of them are provided below.

Lightroom offers many options for processing your photos in unique ways. With such a wide range of controls, there are unlimited possible outcomes for the way an image will end up. I encourage you to experiment as you work—maybe you will invent the next popular photographic style!
