The Lightroom 1.1 Develop Module Revealed

by Colleen Wheeler

This excerpt from Mikkel Aaland's Photoshop Lightroom Adventure introduces you to Lightroom's shining glory, the Develop module. The Develop module is where the heavy image processing occurs. Here you’ll find sophisticated, yet easy to use, tone and color developing controls.

You’ll also find cropping, straightening, and basic retouching tools for removing or altering unwanted image defects.

With all these tools at your fingertips, you’ll be able to create a look that is uniquely yours, and save it as a preset, ready to apply to other images.
