New masking options in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allow you to adjust the density of masks and feather the edges of masks for a smooth transition. The Density slider lets you adjust or fade the overall mask and the Feather slider lets you globally blur the mask to adjust how sharp or precise the mask is.
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.
If you need to clean up the edges of your masks in Effects we are adding the Blur and Chisel Mask tools. The Chisel Tool is perfect for removing halos that may remain along the edges of your mask. It will remove just a small amount of pixels from the edge. The Blur Tool is perfect for only blurring or feathering the edge of your mask. Softening the edges of your mask will allow for a more natural transition when blending photos together.
A photograph with a strong and clear subject grabs a viewer’s attention. ON1 Photo RAW makes it fast and simple to accentuate the subject in your scene. Join me as I use filters and masks to make my photo’s subject pop.
Masking is a technology that sits underneath a lot of the features that you use everyday in ON1 Photo RAW 2017.
