Is there a radial filter (lightroom equivalent)?

This is what I do in "lightroom". Drag circle tool over dark face. increase brightness or shadows. Done!

I don't subscribe to Adobe and don't want to, but i do own version 5 which is great for quick photo fixes.


This is what I do in Affinity photo Desktop Mac.

Use select tool with feather.

Add adjustment layer. (brightness or whatever)


Add radial or gaussian blur

Adjust effect.

It's way longer to do and to adjust than it is in Lightroom with the 1 develop tool.


Or sometimes in AP-desktop

I add an adjustment layer (curves)

Bump up the middle of the curve

Select flood tool and flood the whole layer back to "no effect"

press X to change to opposite colour

select brush with appropriate hardness and transparency and size

then paint on the brightness (mid range curve) where I need it


Am I missing something? An easier way perhaps.

Only found rhe lr equivalent in the develop persona. Works for jpg also.

would be interesting to know if developing a jpg involves loss of quality though.
