Lightroom Graduated Filter and the Range Mask
Lightroom Graduated filter provides fabulous local adjustments. And for fine tweaking the effect, you can use the “RANG MASK.”
In this video, I show you one of the many uses of the “RANGE MASK.”
1- Open an image in Lightroom Develop and apply all global adjustments as needed.
2- Select the “GRADUATED FILTER,” click on the image and drag to create the filter.
3- Adjust the exposure to tone down the highlight. (Ignore the effect on the subject. We will take care of it in the next step!)
4- Go to the RANGE MASK and select the LUMINANCE from the dropdown menu.
5- Click on the RANGE left slider and drag it to the right to adjust the dark part of the RANGE MASK.
6- Adjust the SMOOTHNESS to your liking.
That is all there is to it. Give it a try and let me know.
