Hi, 

 

I work a lot with luminosity masks in photoshop (21.0.0, Mac). All of a sudden, and I do not know why, when I select something on my photograph (the sky or a house) or the highlights, they are saved as black selections (black reveal) instead of white as before. This is super annoying. Can anyone help me understand how to solve this?

Thanks!!
Best,

Could the keyboard option key be stuck? That give you a black hide all mask.

Hi! I have a quick question for you...did you change your settings in Quick Mask mode from Masked Areas to Selected Areas? This has been an issue with me in the past, and I have fixed it by going back to Masked areas. Try it and let us know if this works!

Hi mglush. Thank for replying. 

 

Honestly, I have no idea what those are. How do I change them? I use it to edit my photos, mainly curves adjustments and a love of luminosity masks. Where is this "Masked Areas"?

Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible? 

What are the settings in the dialog that appears when you double-click the Channel in the Channels Panel?

Hi, 

 

I have been trying to upload the screenshot for the last 30 minutes, but it doesn't work, it won't upload. I treid uploading to a free repository to get the URL, but the forum says it is not complete. I have no idea why it doesn't work.

Just use the image button in the posting box to attach a screenshot. You need to be online though, not on email.

I'll try this: https://ibb.co/7pyKp3B

 

I select the sky in a photo, then save the selection: it appears as a black mask, with the rest white. It used to be the opposite. It is particularly annoying with luminosity masks, I want the selections to be white reveal, not black reveal. I do not remember having changed anything on some options I don't even know the existence of.

You've not included the options bar in your screenshot, but check the settings at the top left and make sure the "-" is not selected

The option bar is now there (I hope, if that is what you meant).
