The use of Luminosity Masks in an editing workflow has been around for several years, and they are becoming widely regarded as one of the best selection tools available. Traditionally Luminosity Masks have been used in the editing of landscape images, but can be used on all types of photographs including portraiture. Luminosity Masks are used to make accurate selections in your images based on the luminance values (brightness / darkness) of pixels, giving you the power to work on isolated areas of your images without impacting the entire image.

In this presentation we will cover many of the uses for Luminosity Masks in your editing, showing you the power and control you can gain. Some of the topics we will cover, time permitting, are:

  • What are Luminosity Masks and how do they work
  • Using Luminosity Masks with adjustment layers
  • Using Luminosity Masks with Blending Modes
  • Using Luminosity Masks to blend images (Automatically and Manually)
  • Refining your selections
  • Painting with Luminosity Masks
  • Masking Luminosity Masks (yes masking the masks)

Following the presentation there will be a question and answer period. 

With nearly 15 years of experience using Photoshop I have developed many unique ways of using this powerful editing tool to obtain my desired results in my images. Several years ago I started experimenting with Luminosity Masks as a selection tool, and have since developed a Luminosity Action Panel, originally to speed up my workflow, but has now expanded into a tool that all users of Photoshop can benefit from, ADPpanel+Pro. This Luminosity Action Panel is included in the price to attend the presentation.

I have recently been introduced to Aaron Dowling’s Luminosity Panel and find it one of the most useful and innovative products for digital photographers on the market today. The ease with which you can make delicate selections; adjust tonal values and colours with high precision within an image and even achieve outcomes such as realistic HDR blends including a Blend-If option will make this a must-have to improve your workflow at a very cost-effective price. I highly recommend it for pros and enthusiasts alike.”

“Love Aaron’s Luminosity Panel! It’s the quickest way to select and adjust highlights and other tonal areas in an image. No more painfully brushing in like in the old days. A bargain for anyone who takes his or her photography seriously. “

Kirk Norman – Professional Sports Portrait Photographer
“Aaron Dowling’s Action Panel has been a big part in my photography workflow for over a year. As a Sports Portrait photographer, I needed a way to move through my images quickly to get back to shooting. With a quick and easy selection of luminosity masks, you can transform a flat image and create a striking, well balanced portrait, that pops off the screen with contrast. It’s just so easy to use. Select your tonal range, adjust your contrast with your multiple selection of tools and mask in your areas of adjustment. The best part is it doesn’t stop there.  A big plus for anyone wanting to edit portrait images like the pros and so much more. I couldn’t do without this Panel now, giving me the best post processing I could ever need and at a speed that gets me out of the office.” 

Ferdinand de Groot – Netherlands
“A few days ago I discovered on the internet your site. I was looking for a PS Panel with Luminosity Masks. I had tried several panels but was not satisfied. Your panel is absolute ‘First Class’ and on your site I found so many (Luminosity) Tools and explanations. I thank you for that very much.” 

Nancy Bonhaus – USA
“Wow!  I loved your last version of the panel and I think I will love this version even more after binge-watching the tutorials.  I tried to learn Photoshop for years with nothing but frustration.  Your panel makes it so much more intuitive and powerful.  Your panel is really great, but what really makes it special is the amount and quality of instruction that you provide.  You are a great teacher and thanks so much! Your panel is the best bargain in photography”
