Hi, I have been using Aperture for years and it looks like I will be using ACR or Lightroom because I'm having some issues that cannot seem to be resolved by Apple.
I intend to get into in the manual and start the process asap, but I need two quick bits of information so I can keep my workflow going for now.
1) I need to be able to sample a color and make adjustments to that color alone. Similar to Hue/ Saturation in Photoshop where a narrow band can be isolated and saturation, luminance and hue can be adjusted etc. In Aperture it is the Color brick and I don't know where to find it in ACR or
2) After using the brush tool, is there a way to blend or diffuse it?
#1: the HSL panel allows per color hue, saturation and lightness adjustments
#2: no, not directly, but after applying an adjustment brush, you can erase the mask by holding down the option key (Mac) to subtract from the mask. Done carefully, this allows you to fine tune the adjusted areas...
Thanks Jeff, I'm on the HSL panel, but I'm looking for an eyedropper or something to sample the color. I think that probably should have been my original question.
You can't choose the colour, you have to work on combinations of the nearest ones, either using sliders or the TA tool (which is an on-image click drag version of the sliders).
