How to Harness the Hidden Power of Before & After Previews in Lightroom (Shutterbug Video)

Most photographers who use Adobe’s Lightroom know that it gives you the ability to see “before and after” previews of editing effects on your images. But there’s probably a lot more to Lightroom’s Before and After tools than you know.

Watch as Kelby walks you through the surprising variety of ways you can see how Lightroom’s editing tools will show you the before and after transformations of your images.
