Highlight adjustment and temperature/tint adjustments have been removed from LR Classic Masking controls?
Highlights was missing for so long and finaly they added it way back in LR4. I've been out of commision for a long time and it seems they have removed the abilitiy to adjust highlights/recoery in masks in LRc. It's there in LR cloud/desktop/mobile but not in LR Classic. Does LR Mobile realliy have more funcionality than LR Classic???
There is also no color adjustments in masks, which is also a big FU from Adobe. I use this all the time in LR cloud to fix local color issues esspecially in mixed light situations.
This is a huge problem for me, I use both of these all the time - hightlight masking to locally bring down highlights without darkening the rest of the spectrum. You can darken a white wall without affecting a subject for instance. And it's great for fixign skies wihtout makign them artificially dark.
I'm just in shock and hoping I'm missing something or there is a way to turn these on. Why would they remove these adjustments from masking?
To make it even more ridiculous, they do let you adjust "clarity" in masks, but not highlights or color temperature/tint.
I'm not sure what happened here, but this does not look like the full masking panel at all. Can you post a screenshot of the entire screen rather than just this small part? Is the latest Process Version selected for this image? And can you confirm the version of Lightroom Classic?
My guess was right. Your image is in a very old Process Version, probably Process Version 2. Change it to Process Version 5 (click on the small lightning icon underneath the histogram) and the full masking options will reveal themselves.
