Issue

We need a rapid way to find images that have AI mask errors. These errors happen when copying/pasting or synchronizing an AI mask across multiple images.  The error is hidden and must be discovered by opening each image, opening masks, and looking through the list of applied masks, and selecting an AI mask to see the error. There is no current way I can find to locate images with errors.

Proposed solution

  1. Add a "Masks with error" filter to the filters in the Library module.
  2. Add an overlay icon or text panel indicator to photos with mask error conditions.

I've already had a number of requests for Any Filter to search for photos with Select Sky / Subject masks that need updating. I'll be releasing a new version soon to let you search all the attributes of the new masks, but meanwhile, here's how to create a filter that will find all photos that need updating:

 

1. In Any Filter > Search, click New, and in the Edit window:

2. Change "Name" to "Mask needs updating".

 

3. Select the Library > Code criterion.

 

4. Clear the "fields" box.

 

5. In the "code" box, copy/paste these lines:

(function ()
    for _, group in ipairs (photo:getDevelopSettings ().MaskGroupBasedCorrections or {}) do
        for _, mask in ipairs (group.CorrectionMasks) do
            if mask.What == "Mask/Image" and not mask.MaskDigest then return true end
            end
        end
    return false
    end)()

5. Click OK. 

 

Now you can apply the "Mask needs updating"

I forgot to add it, but a right click on the image should also have "Recompute masks" option.

While waiting for Adobe to implement this idea, you can use the Any Filter plugin to find photos with Select Subject/Sky masks needing updating:

I released Any Filter 1.45 with full support for masking, and you can search for masks needing updating more easily using the built-in filter Sky/Subject mask needs updating:
