    Hi Bob,

    Sorry we had to direct you over here but Adobe don't seem to like references to Richard's Book or Tools on their forum ...

    In the original HPA folder you downloaded you will find another folder HPA3mac (or HPA3PC?) inside that there is a file HPAreadmedo.rtf. ..... I hope

    The instructions are right at the bottom of that.

    If you can't find it let me know and I will E Mail you the text ... but in the meantime I have copied the Highlight and Shadow Masking for you:

    Shadow Mask Creates a selection of the lightest portions of the image, where the intensity of the selection is in proportion to the darkness of the tone. This is very tricky to do in Elements, but here is simplified to a mouse click. The idea is to mask the shadowed areas from change.

    Highlight Mask Creates a selection of the darkest portions of the image, where the intensity of the selection is in proportion to the lightness of the tone. The opposite of a Shadow Mask. This is very tricky to do in Elements, but here is simplified to a mouse click. The idea is to mask the highlight areas from change.

    Let me know if you need the rest of it.

      Thanks Wendy, I do have the txt document and I understand what the tools action is but not sure where to go with it.

        Hi Bob,

        You can use Highlight & Shadow Masking if you need to lighten or darken parts of images ... So if you have an area that is in deep shadow you can lighten just that part of the image.

        The best way to get more information on how the tools work is to do a Google search for a tutorial ... because the tools are all in the full version of photoshop you should find quite a few tutorials.
