Masking Module: Linear Gradient
the next mask we're gonna look at is the linear gradient. Let's do the linear gradient on the mask. So again, click your mask button, click plus and go to linear gradient. And with this one you actually have to start kind of like the brush. So I'm going to click and drag on my image and I'm gonna pull straight out. And one of the things you'll notice is you've got this little dot with a line that allows you to adjust the gradient. This way you can click on the front bar and push it in. You can click on the middle bar and tilted, you can click on the back bar and push it in so let me show you what that looks like, what the mass changed. I think sometimes this can be a little easier to see. Let's do white on black. So I'm gonna click on the image. If I pull I may rotate this, pardon me, I can rotate the ankle, I can pull the mask out or squish it in. I can click on the center line and rotate it also because you might want to do that, you never know. And I can also pull it in from the lef...
t hand side, right. So that's pretty basic. Let's go back to the overlay and then I'm going to make a change. So I'm going to take the lights down again on the phone when you're masking the minute you start a correction, you can see what's underneath on the desktop, you actually to turn the overlay on and off. And let's say I want to bump up the saturation on this piece. Yeah, let's just say for giggles, I like that. Now I'm gonna click on the mask icon. Yeah, I think I like that. Okay, I just clicked on the mask to make that dialogue of the edits go away and now if I rotate or slide this in, slide out, I'm gonna turn the overlay off for just a second so you can see this again. I just click the overlay on and off here at the top, so if I slide it over you can see the shadows are getting more saturated, right? See that? Or I could slide it all the way back. Pretty straightforward, very easy to use, I use it quite a bit.
