Just when you thought you were finally getting a handle on editing, it happens. There’s a ghost in the machine, a wrench in the works, a rat on the rhododendron. You’re stuck for some damn reason, but for the life of you, you can’t figure out why. It’s entirely possible that you may be the victim of a big, bad, booby trap. Both Lightroom and Photoshop are full of them. In this session, we’ll reveal some of their sneakiest snares, and how you can wiggle your way out.

In Lightroom Classic Version 11 and Later, Adobe introduced a new way to make selections and masks in the Lightroom Develop Module. If you’re using Lightroom Classic 11 or Later, we recommend purchasing New Masking Magic in Lightroom Classic 11 in addition to this product to get up to speed on the new masking tools.
