If you're like me, the graduated filter and adjustment brush in Lightroom is one of those great Lightroom features that I've just never get around to spending the time to get proficient with. I tend to make a trip out to Photoshop to do this kind of thing with a layer mask just because that's how I've always done it.
Well here is a quick way to get proficient with these Lightroom features- a free, very pleasant, 24 min tutorial by Julieanne Kost of Adobe on how to use this stuff. 24 minutes on with this tutorial could save you a bunch of time in the long run.
Thanks to Kerry Bern of Ankeny, IA for pointing this out to us.
