I am struggling with this any help would be very appreciated.

I have a day image, i wanted to change it to night which i did using color correction " curves" . The problem now is that lots of things in the image have become dark which i didnt want. I want the Curves effect to not apply to specific areas in the image. I dont know how to do it.


PLEASE HELP, i am unable to find anything specific on the web.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Yatindra5E12 ,

 

Glad you sorted.

 

Did you create a mask?

 

Best

Yup i understood the concept of mask better now. Copied the layer and then subtract mask and then faded it out. Dont even need selective color and stuff people shared online.

Actually, you don't have to duplicate the layer, just draw the mask on the original layer and in the timeline, in the compositing options of the Curve effect press on the + button.

This way your mask will be used to limit the Curve effect only
