How to Customise the ‘Before’ View in Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom gives you the option to view a before and after image, easily comparing your edits. But if you want to compare with a version of the photo that has already been edited, it might not seem so simple. Luckily, there is a really easy way to do this!

By right-clicking the target edit in your changes history, just select the option to copy the settings to the ‘Before’ view. And there you have it – all done!
