Creating Complex Mask Selection in Lightroom


If you’re a Lightroom user, you may feel that the selection tools aren’t great. They certainly lack the precision you can achieve in Photoshop. As I’ve been writing my latest book (not surprisingly it’s on Lightroom), I’ve been creating some increasingly complex and precise selections. Some even rival what you can achieve in Photoshop using masking.

Rather than just keep this for the book, I decided to publish a couple of videos on You Tube to demonstrate the techniques.

The first shows how to cleanly separate the sky from the ground in an image.

The direct link to the video is (https://youtu.be/ZITvFl2IgA8).

The second shows how to isolate a tree and ground from sky with a couple of clicks.

The direct link to the video is (https://youtu.be/9rvh9_M4Bts).

I’m may do a third if people like them, but it also depends on time. I need to finish the first draft of the book – it’s quite a long one.
