luminous mask

hi all
once here in the forum i've read about a technique for selecting highlight, midlight and shadow and after, combining the selection obtaining more selective transition and mask

if i remember right it was called luminous mask

Cli, you can use Select > Color Range and from the pull down menu, choose the Highlights, Midtones, or Shadows. Then use Select > Save Selection to save to a new channel to which you can add one or more selections.

Re: luminous mask

I think Tony uses a [Ctrl]-/[Cmd]-click on the composite channel to get the luminosity selection, inverses that selection and does a [Shift]+[Alt]+[Ctrl]-/[Cmd]-click on the composite channel so he has all the intersections from both channels.
Color Range seems to use a more correct approach of selecting the composite's luminosity and using a V-shaped curve on the resulting selection (with the first approach you'll select the shadows/highlights to a greater amount).
