Something that always seems to cause confusion amongst photographers, is Luminosity Masks. I think a lot of the confusion is down to people hyping the technique. There seems to be a lot of photographers that for whatever reason, want to make the subject confusing.

Why does this appear to be the norm with many people involved in photography? If someone thinks they have an edge, they won’t share it. But some even try to make it harder to learn to keep that edge.

I hope to remove some of the confusion with my latest video-based course “Mastering Photoshop Luminosity Masks”. I have priced it at what I think is a reasonable £20 + any local taxes, but  I’m also offering a 50% launch discount until the end of April 18.

Even if you don’t want to enrol in the course, I made the Introduction section free to watch. It has some useful information about masks and Photoshop that you might find helpful.

To watch the Introduction, use the discount link above. When the information page opens scroll down to the Curriculum section. Here you can use the Preview buttons to watch the videos in the introduction.

On1 Photo RAW 2018 Masking

Following my video demonstrating how to use On1 Photo RAW 2018 to edit a landscape image, I received a few queries about how I used the masks. How do they work and what are all the sliders for? To help answer these questions, I put together another video.

This time, rather than concentrating on the effects, this one concentrates on using the masking tools in On1. I hope this helps video helps you.
