Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Selection masks, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- One of my favorite types of masks…is a selection mask.…Now it's different than Photoshop selections…where you use a tool…but the concept is really the same.…You're making a selection based on criteria…such as color or luminosity information…and the Tiffen Dfx package provides…a real handy visual interface so you can tell…exactly what's being filtered and what's not.…Let's apply this to a Photoshop image.…I'll make this a smart object…so I can work non destructively,…And apply the DFX package.…
In this case I want to process this image.…Now let's bring the filter view back up…and what I'd like to do…is really boost the color in the sky.…To do this I want to work with a tint.…And you'll see several different options here…to really colorize things.…In this case though it's feeling really strong…and while I like these…I'd like them to not be applied so universally…to the whole image.…
Same holds true here if we take a look at color.…Let's say that we really want to boost the skies…getting a high contrast look.…Now I'm going to back this off a bit…
