In Lightroom Classic, in the Development Module, “Detail” section, “Sharpening”… when you hold down the “Option” key (on a Mac) and move the “MASKING” slider to determine how much sharpening you want, is there a way to save that grayscale image Lightroom Classic generates, the image that shows you what exactly is being sharpened? It is an image that only appears while you are depressing the Option key and your cursor is hovering over the Masking Slider while you are simultaniously depressing the left mouse button.

I have attempted to include a low res screen-capture to help clarify what it is I'm talking about.

No, you can't save that mask as an image, other than making such a low res screenshot.

If you're just trying to create a similar effect you can use the below settings. It converts the image to B&W and inverts the image to create a negative effect by dragging the Point Curve end points to the opposite ends. You can then apply any of the other settings for creative effects.

A nice idea, but not quite the same. The B&W image that you create this way may look a bit like the sharpen mask, but it is totally different. The sharpen mask is based on image detail. This B&W image will be based on (reversed) luminosity.
