LrC & ACR’s New Masking

This lesson gives you an in-depth look at the new masking capabilities that were added to Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw in October of 2021. We explore each of the masking tools available, how their overlays work, how to combine them to create much more complex masks and use them all to optimize a single image.
