Whats your opinion?

You can use local adjustments with any application that can make and use masks. That is what all the applications that do local adjustments do. They overlay the effect on the base image as layers, except that they have a reduced resolution base, to make processing quicker and that they can very quickly rebuild any changes.

The program I am currently using, Rawtherapee do not have masks. I wonder I should switch to one that have that ability, or if its not that important. or whatever.
Editing photos isnt the most fun thing in the world anyway.
