Using Color Range Masks in Adobe Lightroom
by Forest Chaput de Saintonge
Many of us have been using Lightroom for years and have slowly seen Adobe take more and more features from Photoshop and move them into Lightroom. With the latest Lightroom Classic CC update, Adobe introduced two new ways to refine local selections: color and luminance range masks.
These masking options allow photographers to further refine all three of Lightroom’s local adjustment tools, making them more precise and better at selecting objects in cluttered environments.
In the video below we take a look at color range masks and how they can help you make much more accurate selections when selecting objects that vary in color from their surroundings. This can be especially useful when trying to change the color of clothing or other objects in your photos beyond the spectrum of what HSL can handle.
