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... 🙂

Two possibilities I can think of:

 

1. You've inadvertently collapsed the local adjustment sliders and are using the Basic panel sliders

or

2. You are scrolling too far and using the Basic panel sliders by mistake

Buenaas noches!

Tengo un problema a la hora de usar una máscara en Lr, ya sea que intente con el pincel, Degradado radial o cualquiera de las opciones, no me permite realizar los ajustes sobre esa área seleccionada.

Por ejemplo al seleccionar con el pincel si me sale en rojo pero cuando cambio la exposición lo hace sobre toda la imagen,

 

Necesito ayuda urgentemente,

Gracias

I just updated my LR Classic and now the Masking Feature is not working correctly.  ie. I have a photo of a bird and choose "Subject"  It does show the bird is chosen but when I try to make changes, the changes are applied to the entire photo.  I have been working with new Masking features for quite some time and this has never happened.  It started when I updated.

You're likely manipulating thew wrong sliders and have accidentally moved away from the panel for the adjustments for the mask edit and are manipulating the settings for the entire image:

That's exactly what I did. The "Effect" box is new and I didn't realize I
had to go there to make the changes. It is new, right? I'm still trying
to figure out what exactly the change really is. As least I know where to
go now. Thanks so much.

The "effect" box is not new. It was there under the old masking interface, but most people never encountered it. Still, once in a while, people clickd on the triangle and collapsed the mask sliders, and there it was ... the Effect slider.

You are using the Basic Panel sliders, that's why it affects the entire image.

 

What has likely happened is that You have accidentally collapsed the Masking sliders, you need to un-collapse them and then use the Masking Sliders.

Lightroom classic 11.1

When using the mask in Lightroom and making adjustment, Lightroom ignores my selection and changes the whole image.

 

I have Lightroom on two computers, only one behaves like this.  The other doesn’t.  I have check my settings in both and they seem the same.

I can't seem to revisit an existing mask in a Lightroom Classic file and edit the parameters. Regardless of the mask in place, any parameter changes affect the entire document as if no mask exists.

Sounds like you are using the Basic panel (adjusts the whole image) instead of the local adjustments panel.

Scroll up to see it.

So if you are not going to read the Correct Answers, or read any 'Update News' -here is a summary of possibilities-

 

1) You have opened the 'Masking' palette of Tools, but NOT yet selected one of the Tools. (Brush, Gradient, etc)

Rob_Cullen_0-1645406098522.png

 

2) You have scrolled too far down the Right-side of the screen and are looking at the 'Basic' panel sliders.

Rob_Cullen_1-1645406159198.png

 

3) You have the Tool panels in a 'Collapsed' state, thus hiding the sliders. Click on the 'triangles' to expand the panels.

When you click on the Brush 'triangle' the adjustments for the Brush will show as-

When you click on the Effects 'triangle' all the Sliders that affect the current TOOL will show-

2022-02-21 11_22_48-Clipboard.jpg

 

4) Then you must actually apply the (Masking tool) to the image (eg. Brush on the image or draw a Gradient), then adjust sliders for the Effect of that Tool.

Hi, I am trying to edit photos and use the gradiant mask a lot. Unfortunately since the last update, when I create the gradient mask, and I would try to brighten that part of the mask, it wont recognise the adjustment only on the mask but always on the entire photo as if no mask was applied. Obviously super annoying. Thanks for any help!!!

Bonjour,

 

Avant que quelqu'un m'en fasse la remarque, j'avais mis à jour Lr mais on m'avait conseillé de revenir à la version précédente au regard de mon souci. Ce qui n'a rien changé.

 

1/ Depuis les nouveaux magnifiques calques de masques mis en place avec les mises à jour (ironie), j'ai beau inverser les masques, vérifier que tout est cliqué/sélectionné, etc. Aucun de mes masques ne fonctionne correctement : toutes mes modifications impactent l'entièreté de la photo. Je ne peux plus faire de modification localisée, que ce soit avec le filtre radial ou linéaire. En revanche, ça fonctionne sur l'autre lightroom, mais je ne retrouve pas certaines fonctionnalités et je ne comprends pas l'intérêt de ce Lightroom par rapport à l'autre...

Du coup : si quelqu'un peut m'en donner la raison, il doit y avoir quelque chose que je n'ai pas bien fait… : mais quoi ?

 

2/ Là aussi, depuis cette mise à jour (de "&@), Lightroom classic se met en tête de convertir tous les paramètres prédéfinis au format XMP, ce qui met 2 ans à peu près. Bon, j'exagère : le temps d'écrire le paragraphe plus haut, quelques minutes...

Pour être honnête, j'ai récupéré pas mal de ces presets sur internet, que je n'ai pas encore essayé : et la version d'avant ne me les mettait pas à jour de façon systématique comme cela... Une idée ?

 

Merci à tous ceux qui auront la gentillesse de me dépanner, et merci par avance de votre bienveillance.

 

A bientôt !

 

PS : J'ai essayé de vous aider en capturant un écran de chaque problème.

Il faut re-ouvrir le panneau (qui est a ce moment presque caché) ou se trouvent les controles localisés: plus bas, ce sont les modifications globaux qui se voient et qu'on donc utilise par erreur. Ce panneau restera ouvert.

Non mais Richard OF LONDON : I LOVE YOU !!!

Je n'aurais jamais prêté attention à cette petite flèche, pourtant, j'avais suivi la mini formation de la mise à jour. Alors j'ai du loupé cette étape CRUCIALE ! Quelle idée de faire deux panneaux, c'est pas possible...

 

Merci beaucoup Richard, de votre promptitude : je vais pouvoir enfin réutiliser Lr Classic tout de suite. Quel soulagement (je ne trouvais pas l'option "ouvrir en tant que calque dans Ps" sur l'autre version par exemple...), que de temps perdu, merci encore !

De rien: je trouve puissant et naturel, que les deux panneaux restent visible en meme temps. On peut equilibrer les effets locaux de l'un contre, ou en concert avec, les effets globaux de l'autre. On les modifie en parallel, disons.

 

(Un plaisir pour un anglophone d'essayer /  massacrer cette belle langue encore...!)

I didn't realize you were a native English speaker ! So, i thank you again for your swift response and i have to tell you : your French is impeccable!

Indeed, once we know we can navigate from one panel to another, it seems interesting. But one have to know what this little arrow actually means! Especially when it does many others things in the other panels, and usually :not really important ones !

Have a great weekend !

It took me a while to find the correct name for these small triangles! 'Disclosure Triangle'.

And in the past- many could not even see the Disclosure triangles when they were Dark Grey on a Grey background.

Here is a Wikipedia definition-

A disclosure widget, expander, or disclosure triangle is a graphical control element that is used to show or hide a collection of "child" widgets in a specific area of the interface. The widget hides non-essential settings or information and thus makes the dialog less cluttered.

In the Lightroom-Classic interface the "widget" ie. Panel,  is ESSENTIAL. 🙂
