    Re: brush settings for luminocity mask

    In order to use luminosity masks more effectively, I recommend using the actual dodge and burn tools on the mask itself. Default brush, no noise, no scattering, no transfer, no airbrush, just plain old round soft brush set to low exposure. You can see the mask itself by alt clicking the mask thumbnail (that white or black box next to the layer name).

        I do, but it's about the result, not the tool. Yes, pen does make things easier.

                hi
                how do you blend several exposures?
                and may i know your brush settings ?

                i started to blend 3 or more exposure with photoshop to have a natural look , but often i got ugly surreal images

                and when i paint with tony's action alpha maskes for example light , i noticed that with the selection active i can paint in the midtones too

                thanks skoobey

                  It's always going to be HDR looking if what you want as a final result is far form the dynamic range of the initial image.

                  I blend it with everything, from selections made from channels, lasso, marquee, magic wand, pen tool, dnb on mask, selective color, to just pure brushing it in.

                  Always default round brush, varying opacity, varying flow, but mostly 100% flow.

                  That's why you refine those masks, and that's why you make your own masks, not just rely on those defaults. They are for manipulating tones within general range, they are not specific to your image, and even less specific to the elements in your image.

                      You are over thinking it. What is the concrete problem we can help you with? Blotchy, blurry results?

                          In Luminosity mask you don't need settings. You using brush as an eraser, to delete part you don't want.

                            by Repairman
                            (CS3) When using layer masking I have noticed that when hiding or revealing an image using a 100% brush that 2 or 3% of the underlying image remains visible. No amount of pen pressure or 'lasoo' will work. The offending 'ghosted' portion is barely noticeable yet can be significant when the hidden and...

                            I am attempting to use a layer mask in PS CS and cannot get it to work. I have reviewed two tutorials and am fairly certain I am doing it correctly. When I apply something [desaturation for example] to the adjustment layer and then click on the layer mask and select either white or black and paint...

Using CS1 I could hold down my "alt" button and click the little box with the circle in it on the "layers" tool box and a mask would appear on the current layer. Using the white...

                            Ok so I finally caved and got myself a wacom tablet. It's my first one so it's taking a bit of getting used to but I wanted to ask what settings do I need to play with to get these kind of strokes. In particular the ones on her shoulders and arms. Is it fade with pen pressure switched on? I can't seem...
