Luminosity Masking in Photoshop®


Luminosity Masking has been the talk of the town for a while in the photo industry—and for good reason. It’s one of the easiest, most effective ways to create striking images that cover a wide range of levels of light. The idea is to separate the luminance data from your image, make a mask and edit the data independently. Blake Rudis will begin by walking you through the basics of Luminosity Masking, and then will address some of the more advanced uses. Once you master this awesome tool, you won’t know how you ever got by without it.



  • Wow, Best class to start off Photoshop Week! Blake made me see the light (luminosity) and how easy it is to make selections with this tool and also be selective in the masks. Can't wait for the landscaping class.
