Re: Lightroom-like split toning

You can use an Highlight mask, and a shadow mask and then apply a solid colour layer different for each... (With a gradient map the effects are quite nice as well)

there is a method to make luminosity mask, that you can find here :

all the layers set in colour or hue (depending on what you're after)

Dont forget you can still open JPEGS in Adobe Camera Raw too! Doesnt have to be a RAW or TIFF file.

Then when you open it, hold down the shift key and open as a smart object! Then you can re-adjust your ACR sliders later.

Re: Lightroom-like split toning

just came across this thread... thought id throw in my 2 cents and see if people can suggest something.

the thing about the ACR or Lightroom split toners is that they leave the underlying colors intact and just adjust the highlights and shadows. im pretty sure all the above mentioned methods and suggestions will completely disregard the original color and set the image to a true 2 color only split tone.

i prefer to work with adjustment layers so im wondering if there is a setup that will allow me to setup similar controls where i can retain the original color and just tone the highlights/shadows. a color balance layer KINDA does it, but its definitely not as flexible as the ACR or LR tools.

any suggestions?

Re: Lightroom-like split toning

Hi Elkon and welcome to the forums

I am not sure what you desire is what the original thread was all about. Nevertheless, to maintain the Color from below and just adjust the Luminosity with the adjustment Layer(s), set the Blend mode to Luminosity. The definition of the Luminosity Blend Mode is to use just the Luminosity component subsequent to the adjustment and use the Color from the Layers below. I am not sure if that is what you want yet it sounded like it. Hope that is helpful.

Re: Lightroom-like split toning

hi John, thanks for the response.

... but nope, that wasnt what i meant. what i meant by ACR and LR only adjusting the highlights and shadows was that it only adjusted those tones/color ranges. not luminosity. so the midtones stay as they were and the shadows and highlights change color. does that make more senes? sorry for the confusion

Re: Lightroom-like split toning

Oar alternatively, If you want to shift the color without affecting the luminosity, set the blending mode for your adjustment to color. I would also experiment with the contrast blend modes (like soft light).
Reduce Opacity to show more of the original color/image.

For a split-toning effect (different color tone for highlights/shadows) you could use several different adjustment layers; I would recommend Gradient Map.

As someone said, you can also use Camera Raw (identical adjustments to Lightroom).

I have attached some images just to show that different method can be used for the toning. They are give a bit different results (and possibilities), but they all work. Personally I would always use Curves or Gradient Map.
(max. 5 files per post, remaining images in next post).

Re: Lightroom-like split toning

chain, thanks for the options. i've played around with lots of variations and most of them get there eventualy, just not as neat and tidy as the ACR or LR tools. also, maybe its the image im currently using, but the 'blend if' slider gives me hard, posterized edges, not smooth transitions.
