    Filters, presets, actions, and overlays can all enhance your photos, but they do inherently different things. Choosing the wrong one can set you back in the editing process. Also, many editing tools are exclusive to either Photoshop or Lightroom, so it’s important to have a basic understanding of compatibility before combining tools.
    Presets are a key Lightroom feature. A preset is a collection of saved settings that editors can readily recall and apply to any photograph in a Lightroom catalog.

    Lightroom’s radial filter is an extremely quick and powerful tool. The radial filter tool is typically used in portrait photography in order to highlight the subject and imperceptibly attract viewer attention towards a customizable area of the photo.
    The Tone Curve Panel in Lightroom's Develop module is a provision for more precise tonal and contrast control of our photos. Like all Develop module panels, the Tone Curve Panel is found on the right hand side of the Lightroom window, just below the Basic panel. 
    In the first article on  quick culling I went through my process for culling large numbers of images. This is a very effective technique for weddings, holidays, sports shoots or any other photographic activity that ends in a large mass of material that is crying out for culling and assorting. But what if you do not have such a large number of images? What if after an afternoon walk you have 30-50 photos and still want to choose the keepers?
