In a new teaser video, Adobe has unveiled a novel tool called Color Grading coming soon to Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, and Adobe Camera Raw. The new feature, which will replace the current Split Toning panel, takes its inspiration from the Lumetri Color panel in video-editing software Premiere Pro.
The tool’s three-wheel design is indeed very reminiscent of the color wheels in applications for editing video: In addition to being able to adjust the coloring of the highlights and shadows, as per the Split Toning panel, the new Color Grading panel allows you to adjust the midtones. Each wheel is accompanied by sliders for saturation and luminance. A new global color wheel allows for more general adjustments, while a blending slider allows you to make more nuanced adjustments.
Adobe promises to show off more of the Color Grading tool during this year’s virtual Adobe Max conference from October 20–22—which you’ll be able to attend for free from the comfort of your armchair of choice.
