  • 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

          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.

            hi guys thanks to answer i'm trying something around...

            i've see that the mask "Basic MidTones" that i obtain from Tony Kuyper method is completely different than the one that is obtain via Select > Color Range > Midtones.

            what do you think...

                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).

                  If I'm working on an adjustment layer mask is there a command where I can actually see the mask on the screen instead of the photo?

                  Too many masks = ugly
                  by Rexx
                  I am sure every beginner has this problem, yet I cannot find any tips on it. I am probably not looking long enough or in the wrong places

                  Here is my problem.

                  I have an image detail that I need to mask, let us say it is too dark.
                  Ok, I mask it using a contrast...

                  When do you use a "Difference Mask'?
                  by albatrosss
                  Yesterday I did a tutorial from Katrin Eismann's "Restoring and Retouching". It was the first time I had attempted a Difference Mask. When I had completed the tutorial I wondered why that method was recommended since an additional selection was required using another selection tool. ...

                  Easiest way to know you're doing good job "carving", shaping,shading or DNBining, whatever you want to call it is to take a look at your mask. If masks looks nothing like the person in the image, neither will results.
