Astrophotography 101: How to post-process and edit single astrophotos in Lightroom – TUTORIAL 4K

In this new tutorial of the ‘Astrophotography 101’ sequel brought to you by AMP&F, I am covering the basics of editing and post-processing single pictures of the night sky. In the previous tutorial that you can watch here (, we learned about taking single astrophotos in RAW format. However virtually everyone edits their shots to make them look great, but more importantly, to make them look the way THEY like! We will be working exclusively with Adobe Lightroom, as it is one of the most wide-spread photo-editing software (, and I will try to help you create your own workflow:

-adjusting angle and crop (3:36)
-adjusting the White balance (5:09)
-adjusting the lighting (7:45)
-adjusting colors and saturation (11:45)
-making local adjustments (14:52)
-noise reduction (21:45)
-last touches and exporting (22:29)

Remember that the most important is that you produce the piece of art that you like, with your own touch! There are some common opinion standards that say ‘your picture shouldn’t contain too much noise or too much saturation…’ but just go ahead with what you think is easy on the eye!

Thank you for watching. I hope these basics were useful and will enable more and more people to get out at night and shoot what the starry skies have to offer. Don’t hesitate to like, comment, share and of course subscribe to my channel for more videos and tutorials coming soon!
