The J-Trick: Easily Fix Your Digital Photos and Film Scans in Lightroom

The J-Trick: Easily Fix Your Digital Photos and Film Scans in Lightroom | Mastin Labs

Maybe you’ve seen images tagged with J-Trick along with which preset was used and so on and wondered what the heck it is. Or heard rumors of the J-Trick’s amazing power to save an image or give it the perfect amount of ‘pop.’

In short, the J-Trick is a Lightroom trick that uses the histogram to help you to fix all kinds of contrast issues usually due to lens flare from backlit lighting situations, or dirt/grease on the front of the lens

This simple trick will fix contrast issues, with one method for digital files and the other method for film scans.

Introducing the ‘J-Trick.’ It is BY FAR the most popular tutorial video that we’ve created.


This trick will work regardless of which or any preset is used and should be part of every photographer’s editing toolkit.

However, if you want to get the most accurate film look as a base for your processing, please check our amazing preset packs!
