Hello, i can't seem to make the new masking tool to work correct.
When i make an adjusment, by brush, auto select or any other tool the mask shows up in my image, red by default, and when i make a change in the Basic-panel, the adjustments will be applied over the whole image and not just the masked part.
Is this a bug or am i doing something nog correct?
Help please... 🙂
Thank you... right there it is now that I know it's there.
Have a great day everyone.
this is so ridiculous my lightroom does not look at all like all screenshots shown here, I can do all masks changes except for the brush tool.
It's definetely a bug,I've found out that to make it work first you need to do changes and then move mouse on top of the image to see the changes,this only happens with the brush tool.
I am using the correct panel and having the same problem as OP. Are duplicated and inverted masks linked somehow?
Hi , i'm new to lightroom . I've seen a couple of videos like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzPWzJQsYTI and things seem to be pretty straight forward to begin with , except .... once i apply the mask and start moving parameters (exposure , etc) the whole image gets affected - not just the area highlighted . What's going on ?
i solved it . Don't know how to delete this post ...
what a shame you didn't share your knowledge with everyone else, you could have told people how you fixed the problem, but you didn't 😞
For anyone reading along, if you move the sliders in the Basic panel, it will affect the entire image. You want to move the sliders in the Masking Panel, which appears when you select a tool (Brush or Sky or any of the others). In the screen capture above these sliders are collapsed, you need to click the triangle to the right of Effect: Custom: to un-collapse these sliders.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
From the screenshot, the author had pressed on that triangle in the making panel, thereby showing the amount slider, in effect collapsing the panel. Then went and moved sliders in the basic panel. Or, he is confusing the overlay with an edit
Thank you. this helped
wow!!!! thank you this was reqlly hepful!
Thank you, really helpful
I am having a problem with the new masking in Lightroom. I select Masking - Radial Gradient. I draw an oval where I want to apply the edits (exposure in this case). I slide the exposure bar and the exposure changes to the entire photograph, not where I placed the mask. Am I missing something?
Can you post a screen shot of the Lightroom Classic screen showing the mask, mask controls and exposure slider?
You are using the slider in the Basic Panel, which will affect the entire image.
You want the exposure slider in the Masking Panel (which may be collapsed and you would have to click on the triangle to the right of Effect: to un-collapse it)
I am having an issue with Lightroom V11. Windows. I make a mask using select subject, red mask shows subject selected. Try to make an adjustment (any kind of adjustment) and the whole photo is adjusted not just the mask. Anyone have any ideas what is up with this. I have uninstalled LR and reinstalled but no luck.
You have scrolled down the right-hand panels and are adjusting sliders in the 'Basic' Panel.
Also it is possible the 'Brush/Gradient' adjustment panel is in 'collapsed' mode. Click on both the small white 'spinner' triangles on the right-hand edge of the panel to expand the Brush and Effect Mask adjustment panel-
Thank you so much for this input.
I also could not work out how to affect just the masked area as my whole photo was effected.
I tried previous responses in this thread to this common problem but it was your input that gave me a solution.
so thankful there was a solution!!!!!! I was getting quite frustrated 😆
Thank You Rob, I reset the spinner triangle and all is good.
Why when I apply a linear gradient and try to make changes tio it the entire image is effected???
This one keeps coming up. The cause is that you are using the basic panel instead if the mask panel. Did you perhaps collsp the mask panel by clicking on that triangle, result would be that you see an amount slider instead if the full panel.
.Above image shows the triangle I am refering to, and that the mask overlay is on (another user thought the mask overlay was turning the whole imge red) you can ignor thst last bit, image from earlier solution.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or just my not being used to the new masking features in LRc (11, I think). In short, the selecdtions work, so far as advertised in separatring out the items to be masked. But, when I make an adjustment after a selection (e.g. sky), the entire imate is adjusted. The mask seems to have no effect, even though the mask shows until I select a slider. What am I missing. Using Win10x64, on RAW files.
