    Adjustments in Mask area go universal ??

    I created a sky mask on a photo and then duplicated it, and inverted the duplicate to create a mask for the foreground. When I selected the sky mask and reduced the exposure (or other adjustments as well) the adjustment applied to the whole image, not just the masked part. Same happens when I...

    What's the difference between the mask adjustment's Noise slider and the 6 sliders under Noise Reduction in the global adjustments panel?

    Of course the sliders in the global adjustment panel affect the entire image and the sliders in the mask adjustments panel only affect the masked area, but I'm trying to understand more about the behavior. As I start using masks, I'm trying to make sure I understand how to reproduce develop...

    Mask subtract with brush not working iPad

    I'm having trouble with Lr on an iPad Pro, 12.9 inch, 1st generation. I'm using iOS 16.3.1 and Lr v. 8.1.1. I can't subtract from an existing mask with the brush tool when using Apple Pencil. I can create masks with the brush tool, and I can add to an existing mask with the brush tool, but I...

    Develop module Masking tool running slowly on fast machine LR11

    Hi, The new LR11 masking tool is a game changer, but I'm running into some issues. 'Select Subject' takes anywhere between 8-10 seconds each image to detect until the red overlay appears. The images aren't difficult as they are just standard engagement/wedding portraits of a couple shot almost...

    How to Hide Mask in Adjustment Brush

    I have a feeling this is operator error but I can't find an answer. When I enable the ADJUSTMENT BRUSH (just started playing with it) and paint an area, the mask appears. I make adjustments using the slider but I can't toggle off the mask to see the adjustments. When I paint, the mask is...

    Sound when Re-sizing Brush

    Just a minor irritation; when re-sizing a minus brush, ie when holding down the Alt key, when using the [ and ] (square brackets) it plays the Windows asterisk sound. Does anybody know a) why? and b) can I stop it doing this?

    Adjustment Brush Overlay Mask

    Masks in Photoshop can be quickly inverted. Does anyone using LR (CC) or LR6 know of a way to invert an adjustment brush overlay mask in Lightroom alone?

    Orange Mask Preset

    Hi Guys, So I mess around occasionally scanning old 35mm negatives. I use a Plustek scanner with Silverfast 8.0. Sometimes an orange mask is applied to a B+W image and the orange colour stays on the file. In other words it doesn't just increase the contrast like an orange filter normally would...
