My Editing Your Images Cheat Sheet

Here’s a quick look at the sliders in the Basic panel (this isn’t “official”—it’s just how I think of them). By the way, although Adobe named this the “Basic” panel, I think it may be the most misnamed feature in all of Lightroom. It should have been called the “Essentials” panel, since this is precisely where you’ll spend most of your time editing images. Also, something handy to know: dragging any of the sliders to the right brightens or increases its effect; dragging to the left darkens or decreases its effect.
