Tone-Based Mask Panel for CS4

A new CS4 panel is available. It allows users to make tone-based selections.

A luminosity mask is easy with Photoshop CS4. Just click on alt+ctrl+2 (option+cmd+2 on the Mac). But what if you want only the half-tones? Or, maybe you're working on a high key effect and you want to blur the highlights and the brighter quarter-tones. Well, the TLR Tone Mask Toolkit Panel makes that easy.

The panel is a tidy user interface for the TLR Tone Mask Toolkit action set. That action set is compatible with earlier version of Photoshop. This new panel is for CS4 only, but it sure makes it easy to do tone-based selections. You can choose your result, too: active selection, new layer with layer mask, or mask channel.

This is a free tool for the digital photography community. Enjoy!

Cheers,

Mitch

Re: Tone-Based Mask Panel for CS4

posted an update today. In the original version, the calls to the Photoshop actions cause the actions to open. This left the Actions palette rather untidy.

I rewrote all of the action calls. They will expand the action set(s). But the actions will run without expanding. This is much tidier.
