Easily customizable luminosity masks


Recommended Posts

Hi there.

After seeing a video with Nick Page using Lumenzia in Photoshop, I was inspired to do luminosity masks in a new and much more customizable way than the much used 5 levels of brigths, midtones, and darks.

With these macros, when you create a light, midtones, or dark mask, it doesn't create the mask immediately, but applies 3 adjustments: a B&W, a Curves, and a Levels adjustment. Now you can adjust the three fine tune whatwhat you want in your selection. And using B&W adjustment you can more easily target specific colors.

The only difference between the 3 that the curves layer is inverted in the darks, and peaks at the halfway point in the midtones mask.

When you are happy with the selection, select the "Complete" macro, which will create a selection, and a new spare channel from the selection.

Hope you find this useful.
