Local brushing on Luminosity masks for exposure blending




  • Brian Lawson Community moderator

    Try Merging the two layers you've blended with the luminosity mask. Turn off the visibility of all other layers then use either the Merge Layer or New Stamped Layer command. If you use the option New Stamped Layer the original layers will be kept and merged into a new Layer. In this case, turn off the visibility of those 2 layers. Now you can Invert the Layer Mask and paint it back in as desired after reenabling the visibility of the next lower layer.

    Thank you Brian, 

    It works, but it is rather complicated , 

    I hope new versions will have this solved

    It get easier as you get used to doing it. :) The reason you have to hide the other layers is to prevent them from being merged along with the two layers you are trying to merge.

    Glad it worked for you.
