Selective Edit Tool Functions Part 2
we're going to look at the tools in selective edit. Okay, So when you're on this window for the brush, you'll see the top one is size, it's got more of a solid circle in it. Second one down is feather, which is really cool. Then there's opacity or flow. So how hard it comes. And then of course delete and all you do is press and hold and go up or down to change the size. I'm going to show you that demo in just a minute. Same thing for the radio gradient, You've got multiple options underneath. So when you click on the radio gradient, the options you'll get is to resize it or move it, which is very handy, eraser feather invert. This is very important. So let's say on this shot of the boy, I want everything but the boy. Well you draw the gradient around the boy and just invert it. That's all. And of course delete. And then what's really interesting here is when you're on a radio gradient or on this, you need to be really clear. Are you on the actual gradient? Are you on the eraser for the...
gradient? Because look, the control changes when you go to erase when you have a radio gradient, the the icons shift, check this out right here, see so just something to be aware of. It's pretty cool. All right, Leonard gradient has the same, you can erase it, delete it or when you're in the eraser section, you guys see this tiny little blue line, that's how you know what you've selected. Very important that teeny tiny little blue line. I wish they had a bigger icon over it, but they haven't asked me my opinion yet. All right. And then of course the depth mass. So delicious. And I'm gonna show you all these in a demo. I just want you to know what to look for before I get there. So again, you have the uh add selection, you have a paintbrush to add to the selection. You have a race, you have size flow feather, delete. It's kind of all the same thing, but they show up slightly different and I just want to make sure you're aware of what's there. And um the depth capture is this weird icon. It looks like, I think it's like a Star Wars thing and to control that mask. When you click on the selected edit it will pop up and you control that. I'm gonna show you in a demo. Again, I just want you to know what to look for and you have three to choose from. You can make it smooth the sharp and sharpest and of course the famous invert symbol, you have that option. And again the brushes eraser all the same deal. It's all the same stuff inside the window. I just again I want you to know what to look for now when you're in the selective edits in general, one thing you'll notice is you get these options that come up that sound familiar. So you have light color effects, detail and optics and those are independent of the light color effects, detail and optics that are in the regular edit modules. I just want to be really clear when you when you are in the selective edit function, You will see these five yes, 55 effects come up that you can manipulate. Okay.
