Can you change detail/ clarity in only specific parts of photo?

Recommended Posts

I played around with clarity and unsharp mask filters. Are there ways to increase detail in one specific part of the photo, for example one person's face with some kind of brush/sweeping tool similar to what camera + has on mobile?

 

Thank you!

Yes, invert(CTRL+I) the adjustment layer and paint the areas to be effect back in using a white brush.

1.) I couldn't find invert option with that shortcut but I found under layers dropdown. I painted the details white but I don't think my end-product was what was intended :2_grimacing:

Would you have any extra steps or videos re: this topic?

2.) Also, do you or anybody else have any thoughts on the blur and sharpen brush tools. These sound like they would work for this too but I can't seem to see any results from either of them unless it's an extremely subtle effect

p.s. ignore the very first bit.

How much should Larissa ignore, and why? A little clarity wouldn’t go amiss here! :P
