Before the recent local adjustment filters uograde I used to use the radial filter a lot to focus on a particular area by increasing the exposure etc. I then confined the effect to the darker areas using the adjustment slider - moving it to the left and the smoothness one to the right. This was simple and quick. I have been trying to achieve the same effect with the new filters but when I apply the radial filter and then try to subtract the lights using the luminance slider or picker it has a most unpleasant effect on the image. I have tried fiddling with the range slider but cant figure it out - it seems to work backwards to prviously and the overall effect is very harsh. Is there any cahnce of a tutorial on the subject as i cant find one anywhere. Thanks.
Hi - thanks. had a look but unfortunately, the videos seem out-of-date - the range adjustment shown is a simple slider not the the double ended thing with a moveable box in it. So still no nearer, although i have had a bit more success than before but its still a bit hit and miss.
