Quickly brush in or mask out adjustments and filters using ON1 Photo RAW 2018.5. Using brushes is a powerful way to apply adjustments to specific areas in your photo editing. The local adjustment and masking brushes inside Photo RAW will help you transform a dull photo into a stunning scene. There are also keyboard shortcuts for your brushes to save you time when editing. The local adjustments allow you to enhance tonality and color in specific areas of your photo. If you are applying creative filters inside of effects, the masking brush is what you’ll use to mask and blend those styles onto your photo.

    nice tuto. good idea to select sky instead of birds :-)

    For several years we try to convince ON1 to do something for belgian keyboards (other foreign KB too).
    “\”, “[“, “]” don’t work.
    we asked to better manage the mouse wheel …
    for instance we can select in preferences to use mouse wheel for brush size. unfortunately in this case ON1 doesn’t see that outside brush we could still use mouse wheel to zoom.
    they could add shift mouse wheel for feather of brush and why not alt for other purpose of brush.
    and why not, like photohop, having a overlay display with ALT mouse right clic to change size and opacity of brush ? really powerful tool

    last but not least, on win10, even with ssd, nvidia 1050, 16GB ram my brush remains behind my stroke and suddenly jump. still some bugs in performances and speed of brush on win10 machines.

    I used to be able to add an effect and then paint out in some areas but can’t anymore. That was the best feature. Am I doing something wrong now? Thanks

      This feature is definitely still available in version 2019. Not sure what is happening.
