hey guys Ryan here at signature edits
and today I’m going to show you how to
add a matte effect to any image inside
of Lightroom it’s quick it’s simple
let’s do it alright so here I have the
tone curve that is where our map effect
is going to come from and on my left I
have the world’s cutest puppy make sure
to give me a thumbs up if you think this
puppy is the cutest puppy you have ever
seen alright that out of the way to make
our matter of fact we’re going to open
the tone curve if yours doesn’t look the
same as mine just hit this little dot
down in the bottom right and we’re going
to add one point by clicking here about
three-quarters down and then see this
little dot in the very very bottom left
we’re going to double click that BAM you
can see that’s a straight line now what
that’s doing is clipping everything
below this little dot so all of the
blacks which are signified down here in
the tone curve are now dark gray and
that’s what a fade is that’s what a
matte effect does it makes the blacks
gray so we can set our matte effect
where ever we like it let’s say that I
like mine right around there and I’ll
darken down my image a little bit and I
can even save this as a custom matte so
I can go in here hit save and go Ryan’s
matte BAM now I have that saved as a
preset I can go over to my next photo
here I can go over to point curve and
just select Ryan’s Matt and bam that
preset has been recalled I can also edit
it by pulling it up and down this line
to vary the intensity of the effect go
over to one last photo here and we’re
going to go down ryan’s matte perfect
that’s looking pretty good
so that is how to add a matte effect to
your images inside of Lightroom it’s
quick it’s simple and it’s an easy way
to make your images more filmic and
organic hey if you want to understand
