Clean Up Smudges on Stainless Steel Appliances in Lightroom
Here's a quick way to clean up smudges and things from stainless steel fingerprints, that kind of thing. So here we have this oven that has like this actually has a couple dings in it. So this isn't exactly what when you would use it, but I'll show you how well it works. So I'm going to use a mask and I'm going to use the object select with, let's go ahead and use the marquee tool. I'm just going to hover over all of this and it does a pretty good job selecting that just the silver part. It selects the black in between, but that's totally fine. And really what I would do is scroll down and do a decrease in clarity and a decrease in sharpness and it kind of just blurs it out. You can also go up and decrease the contrast and then you can go up to the mountain slider and just kind of bump it up. And if that's too much, I might decrease the uh sharpness adjustment. But let me show you that on off, on off pretty crazy right now. Again, this is something that you might not wanna do if you're...
selling the, the house with an oven but say it was like this right here. It's pretty similar. This just has some Mudge smudges the dishwasher. So I'm gonna select that and let's go ahead and decrease the clarity, the sharpness just a little bit and bump up, bump down the contrast and then bump up the overall amount pretty good. Right. Let's turn that these on off, on off and that is how to quickly get rid of a bunch of smudges on stainless steel. Of course, you could use the healing brush or the clone stamp tool as well, but you gotta do that like one at a time and I find that just this little quick trick helps a lot.
