In this article, we’ll look at how to use Adobe Lightroom AI Portraits features to its full potential and produce amazing portraits.

Understanding AI Portraits:

It uses machine learning techniques to identify facial features, assess skin tones, and make targeted and exact modifications. Photographers may save time and produce professional-quality images with AI Portraits in just a few clicks.

Accessing AI Portraits:

To use the AI Portraits feature in Adobe Lightroom, you must have a Adobe Creative Cloud subscription and the most recent version of Lightroom installed on your device. Once everything is in place, launch Lightroom and go to the Developer section. Locate and select the “Edit” option from the top menu. To begin, select “AI Portraits” from the drop-down option.

Automatic Enhancements:

When you open the AI Portraits editing interface, Adobe Lightroom analyzes your portrait and makes preliminary edits based on its understanding of the image. Skin smoothing, eye and teeth whitening, and exposure adjustments are common additions. While these changes can be a good beginning point, they may not always correspond to your vision or the specific needs of your image. As a result, it’s critical to go through these alterations and fine-tune them as needed.

Manual Adjustments:

After applying the automated enhancements, you may fine-tune your portrait using the manual modification options. Adobe Lightroom AI Portraits has a number of options for fine-tuning individual image elements. For example, you can use the “Skin” tool to control the degree of skin smoothing or the “Eyes” tool to improve the brightness and clarity of your eyes. Experiment with these tools to obtain the look you want while remaining natural.

Customization and Presets:

You may also save and apply customized presets in Adobe Lightroom AI Portraits, allowing you to apply consistent adjustments across several portraits or achieve a specific aesthetic. Once you’ve tweaked an image to your taste, you may save those changes as a preset and apply them to other portrait with a single click. Additionally, Lightroom offers a variety of built-in presets that can serve as starting points or inspiration for your own creative editing.

Iterative Editing and Comparison:

One of the benefits of using Adobe Lightroom is the non-destructive editing method. This means you can make iterative changes to your photo and simply compare several versions to see which one looks the best. You can make virtual clones of your image, experiment with different editing techniques, and compare the results. This freedom allows you to try new things and make educated conclusions about your final edit.

Exporting and Sharing:

After you’ve finished editing with Adobe Lightroom AI Portraits, it’s time to export and share your work. Lightroom offers a variety of export choices, including the ability to select the desired file format, resolution, and quality settings. Whether you intend to share your photographs online or print them, make sure you choose the right settings for each platform or medium. Lightroom’s export function makes it easy to prepare your images for web galleries, social media, or printing services.

If you make a mistake or want to get rid of a mask, just switch the brush to “Eraser” mode and brush over the area you want to get rid of. This lets you control your mask with great precision.

Step4. Sometimes, you may need to tweak your masks to make adjustments that are more exact. There are several ways to improve masks in Adobe Lightroom AI Portraits. One of these options is the “Auto Mask” feature, which automatically finds edges and stops the brush from moving into them.
