The Target Adjustment Tool is a useful feature inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic that rarely gets the publicity that it deserves. The Target Adjustment Tool is a little bonus feature that we can activate when we are working with Lightroom’s Tone Curve, HSL, and Black and White Mix Panels.

I love the Target Adjustment Tool for two reasons. First, I often activate this tool so that I can keep my attention on my photograph while I am working on my image. When the Target Adjustment Tool is in use, I do not have to shift as much of my attention over to the sliders along the right edge of the screen to make improvements to my image.
Second, the Target Adjustment Tool is often better at identifying the appropriate sliders to change than I am while I am making changes to the Saturation, or Luminance, of the colors in my image.
In addition, you can dramatically speed up your image processing workflow once you master the keyboard shortcuts that let you jump from one Target Adjustment mode to another.
