Lightroom is one of the — if not the — most comprehensive photo management and editing applications out there. However, with an application as rich in features and capabilities as Lightroom is, it’s easy to miss small aspects of it that can truly take your workflow to the next level.

One such feature is the ‘Paint’ tool, which can be used to easily categorize images in a number of ways. To demonstrate the Paint tool and its usefulness in your workflow, wedding photographer Jared Platt has shared a brief tutorial as part of his much larger CreativeLive class.

Only two and a half minutes long, the video provides just enough to explain the tool and its capabilities without dragging on. It’s a great watch and a useful tip that could easily make your workflow far more proficient than it currently is.

If you’re interested in checking out the full class, you can head on over to CreativeLive.
