Flick a Switch – Using Switches in Lightroom

Switches in Lightroom appear in areas such as the Develop module where they can be used to enable or disable a setting such as the Tone Curve. You can use this switch to compare your image with or without the effect in place.

Set the switch to the up position to turn it on and to the down position to turn it off.

The benefit of doing this is you can turn the effect on and off in isolation to any other changes made to the rest of the image and you don’t have to wind back your history to see the change.
