ON1 Software Educator Dylan Kotecki is back to show you how to mask inside ON1 Photo RAW 2019. Join him live as he shows different masking techniques and workflows.
Tag: Luminosity Masking
In ON1 Photo RAW you can quickly and easily create and blend masks when editing photos. Use luminosity masks to blend filters and local adjustments to your photos easily. Luminosity masks will enable you to control your mask based on your photos bright and dark areas. Another easy way to blend a filter would be to use a color range mask. Color range masks allow you to create a mask using specific colors. Once you have a mask created, you can blend and refine it quickly using the masking tools.

Let’s wrap all this Luminosity Masking stuff up to one killer conclusion! We are going to talk about some advanced concepts here, but by the time you are done, you will be prepared to take on the Empire!
So we already talked about the Science behind Luminosity Masks and how to use them with Landscapes.
This week we are going to look at how we can use Luminosity Masks with Portraits. Don’t read too far into this, in reality, it is no different than using them with Landscapes. All of the principles remain the same we just have to decide where we want the viewer to focus. Luminosity Masks can be instrumental with portraits, they are not just Landscape tools!
Black & White tones are great for creating a beautiful seascape photo. A powerful tool in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allows for greater control and creativity in your photo editing. Specifically, Luminosity Masks allow you to selectively edit and apply effects to just the tones you want. If it sounds complex it REALLY isn’t. In fact, this technique will help your photo editing workflow become faster and more efficient. This works particularly well when editing landscape photos (or seascapes such as this one), and is perfect for enhancing a boring sky.
So we talked about the Science behind Luminosity Masks last week. While I love that stuff (the inner number nerd in me) you may have found it to be a little underwhelming because we were working on a Test Image.
Luminosity masks are a go-to tool of mine when shooting sunsets, or trying to make a subject and a sky stand out. Join me in this complete, start-to-finish ON1 Workflow edit using luminosity masks to accurately post-process and apply filters to specific parts of this image. You can download the practice file and full video in this post.
Luminosity Masks are a staple in my workflow for my landscape and travel edits. My favorite, is using luminosity masks on images that have intriguing textures and patterns such as this one from Death Valley National Park. The ease of separating the tones of an image with luminosity masks can save us a lot of time. Especially on images like this where the tones are very similar and the different patterns would make it difficult to use a masking brush for adding Contrast, Dynamic Range, and other filters in ON1 Effects. Luminosity masks give us more control to create something beautiful with our photos.
This week we are going to take a look at the nerdy side of Luminosity Masking. We are going to break down the Luminosity Masking panel and get in the weeds. The nerdy stuff is my favorite, hey, I never claimed to be a cool kid :)
Pointing your camera into the sun can make a great photograph. However, doing so usually leaves those backlit foreground elements in deep shadow. In this start-to-finish workflow video, watch ON1 Guru Scott Davenport harness the power of Local Adjustments and ON1 Photo RAW’s masking tools to even exposure and color tone of backlit, shadowy subjects.
A luminosity mask is a powerful way to adjust very specific tonal regions in your photos. However, they can seem daunting to work with. In this Short Clip, see how ON1 Guru Scott Davenport works visually with luminosity masks to quickly and easily create masks for specific elements in his photo. With the classic masking mantra “black conceals, white reveals” in mind, working visually with the mask view makes luminosity masking much more approachable.

This is my favorite new feature in Photo RAW 2018! Now, you can not only create luminosity masks, you can tweak them as well. In this video, you’ll learn how to use this super-powerful feature.
A luminosity mask is basically a black and white rendition of the photo and these masks are great for allowing you to target tonal ranges with specific effects or filters. I quickly show how to make a few quick adjustments in Develop and then jump over to effects to use the Luminosity Mask feature.
