Welcome to Lightroom Quick Tip #7
In this Lightroom quick tip tutorial, you’ll learn all about the HSL panel, the differences between the different options and more.
What is HSL?
HSL consists of 3 different tools to help you adjust the colors in your image. Here is what HSL stands for…
- H = Hue
- Hue allows you to change the colors
- S = Saturation
- Saturation allows you to increase or decrease the saturation
- L = Luminance
- Luminance allows you to increase or decrease the brightness of colors
In essence, HSL gives you the precision and control
Once you expand the HSL panel, you’ll notice 3 options; HSL / Color / B&W.
HSL & Color are the exact same tools. They’re just displayed differently. You’ll get the same results with either option. It’s just a personal preference on which one you prefer to use.
Becuase, with this option you have more control over your custom B&W edits. Just like with HSL & Color, you have 8 color channels for editing your B&W. Much more control vs. reducing Saturation (in the basics panel) to zero.
