Adobe revealed today that it is bringing a powerful new Advanced Color Grading feature to Lightroom Classic, Lightroom, and Adobe Camera Raw. This 2-minute video offers a preview of how the panel works.
The new panel is inspired by the Lumetri Color panel found within Adobe’s Premiere Pro video editing software and is an updated version of the tool / panel formerly known as Split Toning.

Adobe will be sharing more about this upcoming tool at the Adobe Max virtual conference October 20-22, and we imagine this feature will be rolling out to the masses shortly thereafter.
