ON1 Short Clip – New Color Range Masks

One of the handy new tools in version 2018 is the ability to create a color range mask. This allows you to target certain color ranges using a mask which you can then use to selectively apply an effect or filter.

    I have to say I really like this tool along with the whole new luminosity mask. Question I have is how hard would it be to add a color changing adjustment in say the color enhancement filter to be able to change the color of the selected object. I know going to tint and temperature can do it somewhat but being able to just slide a slider left or right would be pretty cool.

      Cool idea Vinny. The closest thing we have in 2018 is the Paint with Color brush found at the bottom of the local adjustments panel. You could select the color you want to use and then and then turn the mode to Replace Color. Then turn on the Perfect Brush and then paint over the object. Here is the video Dan recorded showing this new feature. https://www.on1.com/blog/on1-photo-raw-exposed-new-paint-with-color-brush-coming-soon/

    In my opinion, the new color range mask is probably the best feature in the 2018. It has so much potential to assist photographers in creating their creative image.

    Hi Dan, I seem to be having a slight problem with using this new colour range mask with the Beta version of On1 . It seems no matter how I do it the eye dropper does not work. I mean nothing happens – it doesn’t change, move or any thing.

    I am wondering if you have any suggestions?

    Great idea. This plus luminosity masks seemed to be the only two big new things in the recent Lr Classic release.
