Counterbalanced Adjustment Presets

This lesson will show you how two similar adjustments (vibrance/saturation or contrast/dehaze) can be useful when used together by moving them in opposite directions. You’ll also see how creating presets can make it easier to work with counterbalanced adjustments. These concepts can be used in both Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw, but the presets are mainly useful in Lightroom since it allows you to preview the changes before committing to them.
