Using the Radial Filter in Lightroom

On this video by photographer Anthony Morganti shows to better use the redial filter in Lightroom.

The redial filter has been around for some time in Lightroom and it is a great tool for selectively changing and manipulating areas within your image. The first really useful tip Morganti shares on this video is how to create a simple oval radial filter quickly – just choose the radial tool hold the ctrl/cmd (PC/MAC) and double click on the image. If you lower the exposure you will get a nice vignette.

The second quick tip in this video has to do with creating a perfect circle (using the shift key) and duplicating it (right click => duplicate) to create to exact round radial filters.
