Is is possible to add more then one channel mask to adjustments

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I wonder if channels created for highlights and midtones can be combined to affect an adjustment in AP? Or any combination. I noticed that there is a function in the channels section in the pull done menu to add to but haven't been able to use it. Would a quick tutorial be available for this if it is possible.

You could try creating a separate Spare Channel for both Highlights ( Select > Tonal Range > Select Highlights ) and Midtones ( Select > Tonal Range > Select Midtones ). Right click the first Spare Channel and select Load to Pixel Selection and then right click the second Spare Channel and select Add to Pixel Selection - this will combine both selections. With this selection you can add a new Adjustment Layer.


Hope this helps!
