Learn about adding adjustments, and painting on masks to limit their visibility.
- [Instructor] The cutout's looking really good now…but I think Zeeteah's hair's looking rather too dark.…So let's add an adjustment.…We'll tap on the adjustments…and let's choose the exposure adjustment.…And we can put this panel away to hide it…by tapping on its icon.…Now let's boost the exposure, and as we drag,…we can see her hair getting brighter.…We can take it as light as we like.…That's rather too far.…
I think a quite a small adjustment is needed…roundabout there.…So I like the way the hair is looking…but I think her face is now rather too bright.…Well, we can fix that…by applying this adjustment selectively.…If we open the Layers studio, there is our adjustment…and you can see it comes with a mask,…and the mask works just the same as a layer mask…except it affects the adjustment and not the layer itself.…So if we go for our brush tool,…we'll set a large enough width on the brush…so we can paint it all in one go,…and let's try painting over the face.…
When we paint in black, it hides the adjustment.…Now that's taking it up rather too much.…
