    Doging Burning with Lightroom - Can it be same as PS?

    blwegrzyn Level 1

      Is there a way to dodge and burn in Lightroom in a same way as in Photoshop?

      What should i use to doge or burn mid-tones in LR?

      Is the below table correct understanding of how both applications work?

      For me it seems like the dodging or burning with exposure or layers affect exposure in whole while old style PS tools affect shadows, highlights or mid-tones only.
