A Complete Guide to Masking in Lightroom

In the past few updates to the program, Lightroom's masking features have expanded substantially both in precision and capabilities, and if you have not integrated the new panel into your post-processing yet, you are missing the opportunity to vastly improve your workflow. This fantastic video tutorial will show you everything you to know to take full command of Lightroom's masking tools.

Coming to you from Anthony Morganti, this excellent video tutorial will show you the ins and outs of Lightroom's new masking panel. The quality of the new masking tools is really impressive. I have found it has not only made my workflow more efficient, but has actually improved the quality of my images by allowing me to add edits that simply were not worth the time and effort before. For example, I frequently shoot concerts in a beautiful hall with a glass wall showing off a garden behind the stage. In order to get the stage lighting right, I frequently end up blowing out the sky. However, it was just too difficult to mask the sky in a timely manner to bring it back. With the new masking tools, however, I can do it in a single click and wrangle the sky back to where it should be. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Morganti.
