P:(Masking) Invert/Flip Mask Group

Description:

Selecting subject in the new Lightroom release is great...but no automatic tool is perfect. After creating a subject selection mask, I often Add or Subtract with a brush to clean it up (There is currently no "Refine edge" function, which would be awesome, by the way).  My problem is this--Now that I have the Subject selected, I duplicate the mask so I can select the background. But the Add/Remove brushes don't work properly and must be converted.

Proposed improvement:

Instead of duplicating the mask and going to each element to invert, convert to add, convert to subtract, I would like to see an option on the mask itself to "Flip" it. The Flip at the top level would invert the select subject mask, and convert the Add to Subtract, and convert the Subtract to Add. Then the mask would be a perfect inversion in one step. 

You would have to consider how it would behave with the other mask elements--I was only considering the select subject/Add/Subtract.

yes, i see that it’s ‘planned’ but i also see this thread complaining about the issue (not including other threads) is from october and now we’re half way through february. it’s pretty ridiculous that adobe waited for enough ‘complaints’ before even ‘planning’ to address the issue; it sure makes it seem like the people designing the software aren’t actually using the software or even testing it with people who use it because how; how was the feature missed. it is a super basic function that (obviously) a lot of us use.

Five months later and we're all still hoping for this feature to be implemented. Hopefully when it's finally updated, we'll also see on option to refine the mask edges to help us deal with the all the transition area issues too.

I am definitely looking forward to this feature ... and the eventual stopping of the email notifications for people who are upvoting my suggestion! 🤣😂🤣

 

In the meantime -- Please vote this up!
