Re: Applying Enhancer To Specific Areas

When you use the Effect and No Effect Area tools, the program calculate strokes for a whole picture. If you do not indicate one of the area (with red or blue), the other (used) tool will be applied to the picture. The program tries to find borders between pencils lines, and you do not need to be very precise, it is enough to make a few strokes. And if you use only one tool from these two, it won't work properly.

Re: Applying Enhancer To Specific Areas

Hmmm. Thank you for your answer, but I'm not getting it. Suppose I have a photo of a lighthouse against a blue sky. I want to sharpen focus on the lighthouse but I don't want to include the sky in the sharpening. What do I do? According to the instructions (and consistent with the name of the tool) I draw a figure enclosing the lighthouse with the effect area tool, right? From what I can tell I also have to draw a figure enclosing the blue effect area with the no effect area tool (so I end up with a blue outline inside a red outline like Figures 5 and 6 in the users' manual).

If I've got it wrong let me know.
Thanks,
Don

Yes, you should use both pencils.
You do not need to be very precise, just one blue line inside the lighthouse and red outline around it, the red line must be closed.

These tools are similar to the red and blue pencils in Chameleon, Coloriage and SmartMask.

For example, the picture from the SmartMask tutorial:
