What is a Luminosity Mask?

A luminosity mark is a powerful image editing tool that allows you to make tone-based selections so that you can alter only specific tones of the image. So, you can select certain tones in the image and only make adjustments to those areas.

For example, in a landscape, you could use a luminosity mask to make adjustments to only the highlights where the sun hits the tops of the mountains. When used in portrait photography, it allows you to have more control over the lighting of your images and truly bring out the beauty of your subject.

There are three different types of Luminosity masks:

  • Darks (Shadows)
  • Midtones
  • Brights (Highlights)

These masks are not found in a menu within Photoshop – they need to be manually created by making selections within the RGB channels. They are an advanced technique that requires some understanding of how to use Photoshop.

When you first start using luminosity masks it can be confusing to understand how they work and how to apply them. Fortunately, there is a helpful tutorial that will explain everything step by step.
