There are several ways. A simple way is to right click on a JPEG you want to change, select “File>Adjust…” and use the following dialog box:
-Make sure the image is a JPEG! -Make sure the JPEG is in RAW format (in the “Format” box, find a JPEG you don’t want to edit and press “Edit…”): -Type “Image>Use normal filter” if you want it to filter only the pixels that are currently visible (no image will be created for white pixels). -Type “Image>Use color filter” if you want it to filter only the pixels that are currently visible (no image will be created for red or green pixels). -To see an example of these options, see the example above. -Press OK and Photoshop will show you the image and a preview where the filter is selected.
To edit a Jpeg in Lightroom, hold down the Alt key, drag the Image/JPG into Lightroom, and press the Edit button. The dialog box will make the image change into a new JPG file:
With all these options, if you want to just keep the old version of an image if it’s just a bit too big, it’s easy to do just that: Just drag it onto your Photo Library and overwrite the old image: If you are working on an image that is not yet RAW then to keep it in RAW format it usually is very handy to use the “Use color filter” instead of “Color” filter: If you don’t have some fancy tool or software or if you don’t have a really big image, it is easy to just copy the whole image over on to your Photo Library just like this:
Now that you have the original image you can simply copy the part you want from the new file, or you can move it around a little, and your image is ready to edit!
Can I edit my JPEGs in Lightroom?
The answer here depends on the format of the image you are editing, but a good rule of thumb is to keep your original size of the image and use a new image to edit as it is. If I was to edit an image in a new format that I cannot edit in Lightroom, I would most likely use it in Photoshop.
