The latest Lightroom Classic update features a whole new suite of tools that let you edit and adjust selected parts of an image by using masks. These powerful masking tools give you more options to enhance and improve your images during digital editing.

If you’ve been wondering what “masking” is all about and why these you-beaut masking tools in the latest Lightroom Classic update have been embraced by so many photographers, then this webinar is for you.

Join Seng Mah for an evening of delving into the power of masking, and what it can do for your images!

The heart of using masks is to have the ability to be as selective as possible in what you’d like to edit in your digital photograph. We will examine and explore what each masking tool can do, and how you can add or subtract masks, or even intersect masks to refine your selections.

Whether you shoot landscapes, portraits, daily life, travel, wildlife or any photographic genre, understanding masks and learning how to use them will give you greater creative control over your image editing. You won’t go back to making global edits anymore once you have learned how to refine your editing with masks.

This webinar runs from 7pm – 8.30pm AWST (Perth time). Your ticked to this webinar also includes access to the recording of the webinar, so that you can revisit the topics and techniques covered. You can also purchase a ticket, even if you can’t attend on the date, as you’ll be able to view the webinar later.

To get the most out of this webinar, you’ll need to already have Lightroom Classic 12.0.1 or Camera Raw 15.0 (Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw are very similar if not identical) installed on your computer.
