There are many 3rd party tools that will let you adjust the contrast on "small, medium, or large" objects. Does anyone know a way in Ps to do likewise without the use of a 3rd party tool? Blend-if would do a good job if were talking about separation by luminance or color ranges. But when it comes to object sizes, Ps does not see to have any way to recognize or adjust them. Any thoughts on this is appreciated.

Can do with Unsharp mask with variable radius settings. Definitely not as fast or friendly as 3rd party tools.
