How to Use Lightroom's Point Color Tool

Lightroom's latest tool, Point Color, is easy to miss in the Develop module. However, it's a very handy tool that can help you modify specific colors without affecting other areas of your image.

Check out the video below to find out how you can use Point Color to enhance the colours in your images. 

Point Color is situated right next to Mixer in the Color Mixer panel. If you click on any color in your photograph, Point Color will automatically detect it and allow you to edit its hue, saturation, and luminance. There are exceptions, which you'll learn about in the video.

In some cases, this is exactly what you need to make your photographs stand out. Instead of having to edit general colors, like reds or greens, you can edit very specific areas within seconds. 

This is useful when:

  • There's a distracting color in your photograph that you'd like to desaturate. 

  • You want to change the hue of specific colors to give your photograph a different atmosphere.

  • There's a certain color that you'd like to tone down or brighten using the Luminance Shift slider. 

There are many other reasons for using this tool. Make sure to watch the entire video to learn more about the advantages of using Point Color in your work.
