Lightroom: The Masking Panel

The introduction of the masking panel is one of the biggest updates that Lightroom has received since it was launched, and it’s easy to see why! It grants you the ability to isolate your adjustments to a localized area of your frame – whether it’s a range of light, color, or a specific subject. This level of accuracy and refinement is the key to higher-quality processing, and thus, higher-quality final prints. 

In this course, we’ll explore everything you need to know about masking in Lightroom: the concept of masking, the individual selection tools, and best practices for creating the exact mask you want.
