P: (Masking) "Copy/Paste Correction Settings" options.

At today to apply the settings of an existing Correction to another existing one we must:

(1) preset the settings in the source Correction

(2) apply that newly made Local Adjustment Preset to the destination correction

(3) delete that newly created preset (it was only meant to do the task at hand AND not meant to be kept forever)

 

This workaround is complicated and long.

 

  • I suggest to implement a "Copy/Paste Correction Settings" option in the Masking contextual right click menu and in the "Tools" menu

If no settings have been copied then the option to Paste Settings would not be usable.

I no correction is selected then obviously the options would be unusable in the "Tools" menu.

Originally I suggested to copy ALL the local settings in bulk but it would be best to give user more control and let also copy settings only form specific Local Panels.

 

e.g

While we wait perhaps you can pull this off OR allow a basic "Copy & Paste All Local Settings"  for your Copy Settings plug-in.

"Copy & Paste all Local Settings" from a correction to another seems easier to do.

I am not completely sure that I have interpreted these ideas correctly but they seem to be pointing to the same wish I've had for a while, ie. I wish there was a way for us to add/subtract/intersect one custom-made mask with another mask custom-made also or one of the AI generated ones (sky, subject, background, etc). There are instances where there isn't enough contrast between element of the image for AI to make a decent mask. One can create a good mask by a combination of AI and "brute force". But once that mask is made, it is impossible to make it interact (add/subtract/etc) with another one. This feature would add so much power to LRC! Generic example: New mask - Intersect mask 3 with mask 2. Thank you for the opportunity to share ideas. Jorge.

What I am asking here is totally not what you refer to.

 

What you ask would be doable if we could "Group Components/Masks".

"Grouping Corrections" and intersecting/subtracting them to other Corrections would not be necessary if we could "Group Components/Mask"

Thank you for your comment. I am afraid I am not as knowledgeable as you
are; I must confess I don't really understand what "corrections" means in
regards to masking in Lightroom. But I get the idea about grouping
components/masks.

In any case, I hope Adobe is reading these exchanges and uses them as
they continue to improve Lightroom, which is already such a great software.

Thank you!
Best regards - Jorge.

Apologies.

Naming convention is not consistent and highly misguiding.

 

You will probably see this on one of your images:

 

Screenshot 2024-02-07 at 14.15.35.png

 

If you open the XMP you will see these lines

 

crs:CorrectionName="Mask 1"

crs:MaskName="Subject 1"

 

So in the LrC Ui that its called "Mask" BUT internally that is called "Correction"

What we call Components, or Tools or Mask Tools, are internally called "Masks"

 

The term "Mask" is commonly and interchangeably used to identify both and to me is confusing so I instead I stick to the internal naming that the Camera Raw engine uses.

 

  • I am suggesting to allow to copy the "Correction" settings.

 

P.S.

.SDK also uses different naming convention.

 

LrDevelopController.getSelectedMask()

LrDevelopController.getSelectedMaskTool()

 

You will not find anything named Masking Component in the SKD.

 

It's all very inconsistent.

Thank you so much for your clarification. No apology needed, absolutely.

I now understand your suggestions which are in fact more powerful and comprehensive than my simple idea.

Thank you for your inputs!

I was able to create a headless "Copy & Paste Local Settings" with my own limited skills.

IT WORKS but it is very basic and unfortunately the SDK is missing some parameters.

 

A proper "Copy & Paste Local Settings" like we have for global settings is surely easily doable by the Adobe team.
