Hello guys I am Vaibhav and in this tutorial I am going to show you how to retouch a portrait image using Lightroom 3. Last time I discussed about Soft Glow Effect in Photoshop which is a recommended tutorial for photographers. Remember I am not going to retouch the image for professional purpose or for the fashion magazine purpose because Lightroom is not capable of that much retouching unlike Photoshop.

STEP 1

After finding your image in Grid Module press D to switch to Develop Module. The very first thing that I am going to do is to adjust the white balance. I am going to set my temp value to –50 and tint value to –24. Just by doing this I think that my 25% of the work is done. Just look at the change.
