In this episode of The Complete Picture, discover the power of making selective adjustments like dodging and burning, color corrections and noise removal using the Graduated Filter and Adjustment Brush. Note: although this video was recorded in Lightroom, the same techniques are available in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6.

    Thanks, Julieanne! I’m glad you point out that this tutorial applies to ACR, too.

    I wonder if there is a way to switch to the non-masked areas? For example I use the adjustment brush to mask a fairly small area but want to make adjustments to the rest of the image – so mask off the small area but switch to the unmasked areas to make adjustments – or do I have to build a very large mask and avoid my small little area?

      Hi Rob,

      There isn’t a way currently, but a sort of “invert mask” feature for the adjustment brush sounds like a good idea to me.
      Could you head to our feedback site and post the feature request there?
