  • Click "Add" button. This allows additional selection to be made within a given Mask. There are also Subtract and Intersect With options, plus a given selection can be inverted. So you can develop ...
  • There is a way to ensure Lightroom Classic sends to the desired version of PS - or indeed, to some other external program: by making an external editing preset. This is done in LrC settings dialog, ...
  • Then with Photoshop you can apply Dehaze selectively, within Adobe Camera Raw.
  • If you have a recent version of Lightroom Classic, you can apply Dehaze to only local parts of the image - as selected in many possible ways. Also if you have a recent version of ACR installed, you ...
  • +1 - also Lightplume - both volcano, AND bird photography Lightbloom - flowers Lightflume - kayaking and rafting Lightbroom - tidy interiors ....
  • What is now called "Lightroom" can be used either directly via web browser, or else via a locally installed application which acts as an alternative front-end. That app is already referred to as ...
  • You have been able to invert the extent of a particular masking subcomponent - and also to switch that between Add and Subtract action, as it combines with other selection components, within a ...
  • Just to expand a bit on what's so great about a dynamic range mask: what this is often compared to, is the ability in e.g. Photoshop to grab the current luminance values of the image, and make use ...
  • The answer may lie in the word "Raw". LrC external editing involves a bitmap based working file being either directly converted from Raw by LrC straight away, or else subcontracted out for ACR to ...
  • To my knowledge, the situation is the same for develop and non-develop settings: if you avoid manually telling it to Save, and if you haven't set it to automatically write XMP changes, then LrC ...
  • In Lightroom (I am assuming Lr Classic), you can set your export resizing to 1200px wide and 1200px high. Whichever is the longer side of the photo as-cropped, will be fitted into 1200px with the ...
  • Just to humour me please, have you tested making a simple brushed local adjustment? Have you reviewed the settings for your Brush, in particular Density and Flow? Flow value is easily changed by ...
  • IMO the more expert we all become, the more what we slip up over, is the more simple stuff! Sometimes it's just helpful to have all the considerations laid out as plainly as possible, including ...
  • In LrC, to work out what is going on you might try (1) Uncheck Invert for the intersecting brush layer. Now the effect of the Sky mask underneath will be see everywhere. provided you have not brushed ...
  • The intersecting mask is doing what it is supposed to do: it is suppressing the other mask, apart from in areas where you have painted a positive brushstroke. Wherever those areas are, and only in ...
  • To understand what is going on, say you want to brush modifications to what area of the picture is selected by e.g. a Gradient. The primary way is to make a new masking 'layer' above this Gradient ...
  • Also: if it will need some work, it is IMO much better to scan a print in full colour. Even if it was originally enlarged from a B&W negative. Then (for example) the purple hue of the ink can be ...
  • Yes the current icons would show LrC for the local files version. Previously both product icons said "Lr"; but, quite subtly: (1) Cloud based apps showed with rounded icon corners
  • RP
  • With APS-C rather than 135 (full frame) coverage, any aberrations are in effect enlarged - plus digital sensors 'care' more about the angle of incidence of the light, than film emulsion does, so ...
