What are Lightroom Adjustment brushes?

Adobe Lightroom comes with a whole lot of tools and options but people rarely use them. Lightroom presets are by far the best known tools that most people use. Today, we are going to look at Lightrooom Bushes, what they are and a brief look at their workflow. Brushes, also known as adjustment brushes, are tools in your Adobe Lightroom arsenal that let you add a few adjustments to your photographs. For example, you can use them to add sharpness to a part of an image, use them to change the temperature of a photographs, add clarity to a photographs, saturation, contrasts and many more. In simple, adjustment brushes help you adjust certain aspects of your helmet cam photographs.

Installing Brushes

The first step of installing Lightroom Adjustment brushes is to first of all download them from a reputable source, photographer, designer or website. Once you have them on your computer, you have to unzip them if they came in a compressed file such as a zip file. Once you have done that, you have to take note of the folder that you have zipped them in as we will be needing that later on.

Once you know the folder, open up Lightroom and click on Edit at the very top. This menu option will be next to file. After that, scroll down to Preferences and click on it. A new dialogue should open. Once on this dialogue screen, click on the second tab which is labeled presets. You will see a box written Show Lightroom Presets Folder. Click on it.

Next, double click on Lightroom. Then click on Local Adjustment Presets Folder. After doing this, copy the contents in the folder where you unzipped your Lightroom brushes. Paste them into the Local Adjustment Presets Folder. The last step would be to restart Lightroom for you to be able to use the brushes that you have just installed.
