V5 Quick Tip #2: Modifying Masks

April 20, 2017

Sean Bagshaw continues his TKActions V5 Quick Tip series with a closer look at mask modification. Even though the V5 panel can generate hundreds of standard masks (Lights/Darks/Zones), the best mask is often one customized specifically for the image by the photographer. A full range of mask-modification functions is built into the V5 panel to insure that the perfect mask is always just a few clicks away. Sean shows how easy this is while discussing his thought process behind his choices.

If you missed the first episode, it covers the basics of viewing and selecting luminosity masks and adding them to adjustment layers.

Hope you enjoy these. If you have other V5 topics you’d like to see covered, please leave them in the comments section below.

    Tony and Sean, thanks so much for continuing to provide videos to demonstrate ways to utilize the V5 panel. The V5 panel is a very nice advance over V4, really putting a lot of options right at our fingertips!
