How do you go about editing an image in Adobe Lightroom?

Most photographers tend to start at the top of the editing panel and work their way down. But that can just make the overall editing process tougher. The top treatment panel allows the photographer to make adjustments that affect the entire image so when you go to fine tune the adjustments, it can be tougher.

What I’ve started to find to be easier is making the specific adjustments first to the image and then working on the more global settings that affect everything. This can be more work but it has also given me much better images in the end.

After the jump, we’ve got a short video talking about how I’ve changed my editing workflow along with the results changing right before your eyes.
