4 Steps to Use the Color Grade Tool in Lightroom Classic v10 | Dustin Lucas

Blending does exactly what it sounds like—it blends or overlaps the colors. Moving this slider to the right creates more color between the color ranges, highlights, midtones and shadows. (Fig. 8) Dropping the slider to the left isolates the midtones so you can see this specific range affected without the others included. (Fig. 9) In order to see this at a masking level you can hold Option while dragging to see what areas will be affected. I mostly leave these at their default settings and adjust the sliders above. (Fig. 10)

Lightroom has a lot of fine-tune adjustments available to users. Take some time to see how they work for you.
