A HIDDEN Lightroom Brush Masking Feature


Lightroom has limited masking capabilities and it can be frustrating when you want to apply an adjustment to a very specific part of an image. In this video, I offer a few tips and show a hidden feature that will help you better apply an adjustment to a certain area. I demonstrate how to do it on a waterfall in a landscape image. It also works particularly well on skies in landscapes and on portraiture when softening skin.
