I am going to teach you how to use the secret Amount Slider to improve your Adjustment Brush work inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic in this new video tutorial. The Amount Slider is a hidden feature that I find super helpful when I am working on headshot and portrait retouching projects. By default, the Amount slider is hidden away but once you discover how to make this hidden tool visible then you will love the way that you can use it to adjust all your Brush settings proportionally.

If you are watching this video then I am going to assume that you already understand how the Adjustment Brush, the Radial Filter, and the Graduated Filter tools work inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic. If any of these local adjustment tools are new for you then I urge you to watch my in-depth tutorials on each of these powerful features before proceeding with this video.
It is actually harder to explain in writing what the Amount Slider does then it is just to see what it in action. In essence though, the Amount slider allows you to increase or decrease the intensity of your Adjustment Brush work after you have painted away over part of your image.
If you drag Amount slider up, meaning to the right, after you have laid down some brush strokes then you are telling Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic to increase the strength of the changes that you just painted in. And of course, if you drag the Amount Slider to the left then you are reducing the strength of the changes that your Brush Tool just made.
I must add that although I rarely use it, you can also use the Amount Slider when you are working with Lightroom Classic’s Radial and Graduated filters too.
