Mimic a polarizing filter effect in Lightroom 3

Polarizing filters are a very useful piece of glass. They help get clearer images, remove reflections, create more vivid colors and make the skies look beautiful. In this tutorial I will show you how to reproduce this effect using LightRoom 3. It’s very easy.

Reproducing this effect in Photoshop is more complicated but if you want to learn how to do it, please post a comment requesting the tutorial.

    Tks for your training, I had downloaded the raw file, but didn’t see the details.

      What do you mean you didn’t see the details?

    I would like a tutorial thanks. I’m about to go and take photos of a classic car show next week so these tips are going to help as I don’t have a polarizing filter for my wide angle lens yet.
