Bringing out the Lifelike colors in your photographs using Lightroom like a PRO

Making lifelike colors in a sophisticated software tool like Adobe Lightroom is really easy. All you have to do is to identify the areas that need a special attention. More importantly, the process we are about to mention works perfectly every time.

Observe the image well and decide if you need it to be darker or brighter. Then make it about 30% brighter or darker.
Increase the contrast and clarify. The value you increase should be less than 10.
Go to the color channels and determine the most prominent colors.
Play with the saturation levels of the determined colors. You can preview while changing the levels.
Then, you should go to the luminance bars and change the brightness of the determined colors one by one
Now, change the white balance of the image. Don’t overdo it weirdly though. In general, a slight adjustment of the white balance would do the job.

Basically, that’s it!
