HSL and Color mixer masks

I use camera raw daily while editing my real estate images. And daily, I fix the color hues reflected from the ground or outside. Orange from a wooden floor that reflect on the ceiling. Green from the leaves of the garden that reflect on the white walls or ceiling. The create a more neutral color tone, I edit them in photoshop and remove the color hues with the sponge tool. But that is a lot of extra work. 

 

In Camera RAW, the HSL and Color mixer panels can do this for a complete raw image. I would instead prefer to use radial or linear masks to do this. Is that possible now, or is there another possibility to use a mask in camera raw to edit color tones and hues? 

 

If not, where can I ask to add a radial or linear HSL mask or color mixer mask so I can remove the color hues more quickly than opening them in photoshop to Camera RAW and lightroom classic?

Not sure I fully understand what you are asking for but you can make selective HSL corrections in ACR, using masks:

Working with brushes is too time-consuming. Plus, I can remove color casts with the sponge tool in Photoshop, which I currently do, but with, for instance, the 80 interior shots of today, brushing takes up so much time!

Using a linear mask and the HSL panel would make a massive difference in speeding up my workflow. I obviously can't do it in the entire photo because when I want to remove, for instance, orange from the ceiling, it would also remove the orange from the wood.

You can work with far more than just a brush. Point is there are selective hue, saturation and several brightness sliders for edits available.

LR but you should be able to do the same in ACR.

ACR still doesn't have this panel in any of the mask options. It's the simplest way to use a linear mask to remove/adjust color casts from white ceilings with the Hue/Saturation/Luminance panel already available in ACR.

It doesn't have that, but there are sliders for Hue, Saturation, and various brightness sliders; two shown previously.

Should the specific panel you show be accessible as well? Sure, so make a feature request. But you can today selectively alter hue and saturation, and brightness.

I hear what you're saying. Having the full mixer panel in a mask would be ideal. I often want to  change the hue or saturation of a particular color in a mask. It can be done using ckr range, but having the full mixer panel would be so much nicer. Sometimes, I just make two different corrections in ACR then bring those corrections into PS and mask them together.  Another thing I do with real estate photos is make several exposures with a strobe then combine that with an ambient exposure. I set the strobe layer to color blend mode, which neutralizes a lot of the wonky colors.
