Creating a fill light in photoshop?

Hi Guys

Ive been trying to recreate the fill light effect from ACR in Photoshop but with no real luck. Does anyone no how know how this can be done?. I have a feeling its possible somehow with a mid-tone luminosity mask but it never ends up like the ACR result. Any ideas?

Not saying it's the sme, but have you tried Image>Adjustments>Shadow/Highlight with more options checked? Try a Shadows with a high Tonal Width, and mess with Midtone contrast too.

I'd love to know why S/H isn't available as an adjustment layer?

You might also play around with Filter/Render/Lighting Effects.

In ACR the Fill Light and the Recovery sliders should be equivalent to the Shadow / Highlight adjustment in PS. The Fill Light slider represents the Shadow Slider and the Recovery slider represents the Highlight Slider. The Tonal Width and Radius sliders in PS add an extra dimension of control and range of ACR.

Why reinventing it in Photoshop, if you have ACR?

When running this script you can at least use it as a smart filter, better than nothing, right? http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...lters-cs3.html

works for CS4 as well...
