How to Use Adobe Lightroom: Range Masks

In this Landscape Photography Lightroom editing tutorial. I cover my absolute favorite the Range Mask. This tool allows you to be much more selective with your brushing and masking. This mask allows you to edit a brush selection, radial gradient or liner gradient based on luminance or color. This technique has been extremely helpful for selectively brightening or darkening areas of my images, at the raw level in Adobe Lightroom.

  2. Had no idea…I think it’s going to be my fave too. The things I did in lr to achieve the same thing was such a time consumer..

    Another great help. Was not aware of the Luminance masking in Lightroom and am trying it out immediately. Liked the dog in the background. Mine is also bored when I spend too much time with my photos …….
