    How to edit a selected area of a photo in Lightroom?

    accobb

      Hello everybody. I just don't manage to figure this out - how can I edit a selected area of a photo in Lightroom 5? I thought my answer was the Adjustment Brush, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Here is what I want to do:

      I want to reduce the saturation of a specific colour (blue), but only on a selected part of the photo, not for the whole photo. Let's say I have a blue circle on the top, and another one on the bottom - I want to reduce the saturation only of the first one. If I choose the Adj. Brush with saturation set to -100 and use it in the selected area, it reduces the saturation of all colours in that area and I want it to work just for one colour.


      Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance.
