I consider myself a LR newbie so excuse my ignorance! I was trying to learn the adjustment brush, specifically the teeth whitening one. Got it to work great on a photo, then tried it on another one. I have no idea what I did, but now it doesn't do anything when I use it. I'm afraid that maybe I changed the preset..?? Is there a way to get it back? I can see the mask when I apply the brush, it just doesn't make any changes.
This is how I attempt it:
I zoom into the teeth.
Click the adjustment brush and select the Effect: Teeth whitening
Adjust the size of my brush and 'paint' the teeth.
The first time I used it, I could see the teeth whiten wherever my brush stroke was.
Bottom line, I have no idea what I did to mess it up!
I'm using Windows 7 and LR4 4.1, and my files are in .dng format.
Thanks for your help!!
It does! I knew it was something simple! Although it seems to not go very bright, and I have it all the way at 100. It's about right, but it seems 100 would be the high end. Do I need to save this somehow?
Brush settings are sticky with Last Brush Used and independent of the effect. If your effect is Teeth Whitening it is independent of Size, Feather, Flow, Automask, and Density.
You can set up a standard A Brush and a B Brush as well as a Standard Erasure but they will not remember the settings if you move them.
Flow- How much is applied per brush stroke
Density- How much of the total effect is allowed to accumulate with multiple brush strokes.
So, 100% of your effect is being applied 88% at a time with your previous flow. I normally run denisty at 100 and flow at around 33-50 so I can build up, feather etc.
