Lightroom Quick Tip – Setting the white and black points

Setting the White and Black points in Lightroom is a key ingredient to getting a clean image with nice contrast. There are a few ways that you can set the white and black points and today we will cover a really quick and easy way to get this done. If you don’t want to use the histogram and move the white or black sliders to get the perfect white/black point you can use this shortcut instead and have Lightroom adjust the white and black points for you.

To do this just hold down the Shift key and double click on the Whites or Blacks slider in Lightroom. This will automatically adjust them to the correct points. Super quick and easy way to get your whites and blacks dialed in.

Here is a quick screencast to see this in action!
