Luminosity Masking Tutorial Now Available

Mastering Luminosity Masks CoverI’m pleased to announce the immediate release of Mastering Luminosity Masks: A Photoshop User’s Guide. This new tutorial is available as a printable PDF eBook and includes my custom Photoshop actions for creating and managing luminosity masks. If you are a Photoshop user, this is the reference you need for learning these powerful enhancement techniques.

Luminosity masking is one of the most powerful image enhancement techniques available today for Adobe Photoshop. Target color, contrast, and tone enhancements directly to specific image tones, with masks that are perfectly feathered every time without using brushes.

Along with the step by step instructions for creating and using luminosity masks, I’ve included my custom set of Photoshop actions that you can use to create 23 different luminosity masks with just a simple mouse click.

Mastering Luminosity Masks is available immediately via electronic delivery from Luminescence of Nature Press.
