Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting image luminosity, part of Photoshop CS5: Selections in Depth.
With just one click, you can create a selection based on the luminosity, or tonal…qualities of a photograph.…You might do that in order to brighten just the highlights or bring back…detail in just the shadow areas, or you might get even more creative, using a…luminosity selection to create a split- toned image in which the highlights are…tinted gold and the shadows are tinted dark blue, as I will show you how to do in this movie.…Before I make a luminosity selection, I'm going to make this image look like a…black-and-white image, because split toning just works better on a…black-and-white image than it does on a color image.…
I'm not actually going to convert the image from color to black-and-white, but…I am going to add a Black & White adjustment layer above the Background layer…that contains the image.…I'll go up to the Adjustments panel, and I'll click the Black & White…adjustment layer icon there.…That adds this Black & White adjustment layer and changes the controls in the…Adjustments panel to those for black-and-white.…
