Hi all, This thread is proving to be useful to someone who wrote to me and asked for further explanation but unfortunately I can't help off the top of my head and I can't find Katrin's book right now.

I think the example in the book dealt with selecting fly-away hair if I remember correctly.

Can someone look in Katrin's book and post the translation of the keystrokes from Mac to Windows which I should have done when I originally posted

Thank you so much, Margaret

I haven't got the book on me, but I believe that's Ctrl-Alt-~ (because on most PC keyboards you have to press Shift to get the ~ character, this actually works out as Ctrl-Alt-Shift-# (or whatever is underneath the ~ -- it's a # on UK keyboards))

Thanks Leah, I got another email from the person who is in Italy and there is no ~ (tilde) on her keyboard.

Flora, can you help?

Take care, Margaret

I'm sure Flora will come up with some brilliant solution, but what I've found out in the meantime:
  • The "no tilde" problem is one a lot of people moan about with Italian keyboards
  • There is no exact menu equivalent of that keyboard shortcut (!?).
  • What you could do is duplicate image -- flatten duplicate -- change duplicate to LAB mode -- drag Lightness channel from the duplicated LAB mode image to the image you're working on -- do Select -> Load Selection -> specify that channel.
  • Or you could consider remapping the keyboard, i.e. for some physical key replace a "useless/never used" character with "~". I am emphatically not an expert on this, but there are some good explanations and links here.
Looking at Flora's "Enhancing Details In Unevenly Faded Pictures" tutorial, she refers to the tilde, so either she has a cunning way round this or she has a non-Italian keyboard (of course, that's another option -- buy a non-Italian keyboard... )

Hi,

Sorry for getting back to you so late but I was out all day!

I work with different keyboards ... (Italian-mine, German and English (UK)-my husband's) .... so I had to memorize the different keys and their position .... (Gosh ... don't even ask about the confusion!!!! )

As Leah suggested, I did find a permanent workaround for the missing ~ key .... but, the easiest way for creating a Luminosity Mask in Photoshop on a PC with an Italian Keyboard is to press Ctrl+Alt+1, Ctrl+Alt+2 or Ctrl+Alt+3 ....any of these combination will work!!!

These combinations work in Photoshop only ....
