How do you adjust the center point of the radial filter?

Most of my images are portraits, with the head in the top third area of the frame. If I'm stuck with a fixed center point, the head won't be properly exposed! So I need the ability to move the point within the radius, without moving the radius itself.

The centerpoint always remains in the center. You can adjust the shape and the rotation as well as the feathering as needed. But the centerpoint cannot be manipulated.

You should be able to click on the blue dot and move it to the correct position.

Maybe I’m not using the radial filter..

That doesn't look like a lightroom screen.

That's too bad. Without the ability to move the center point, the radial filter is sort of a blunt tool.

It hasn't bothered me. But then, maybe I'm just a simpleminded user.

You can do what you wish without moving the center point.

Hold down the Alt or Opt key while moving the outer points to create any kind of oval shape you need for faces. Use the brush tool to mask. The center point remains in the center and is irrelevant in this case.

 

I know this is an old post so hopefully you got an answer a long time ago.

I just came across it today. Just in case you're still searching , here it is.
