When using the adjustment brush to erase parts of a graduated filter sometimes the automask is not completely accurate and there is a need to go back and restore erased areas. Unfortunately, it appears that in these cases there is no way for brushes to match accurately the density of the gradient at the point where it was inadvertently erased. This is particularly noticeable where the accidentally erased portion is perpendicular to the gradient. When painting over the erased area, the added areas are solid and not a gradient. Does anyone have any solution to this issue? Or am I doing something wrong with the new brush that is part of the graduated filter? Thanks!
It's likely not not the source of your problem, but the auto mask can be problematic. Therefore, it's worth whether things improve with auto mask off
Obviously automask is the problem. It's not always perfect. But turning it off will just make things worse and make correcting the mask even more important.
Of course, I could take the photo with and without the filter into Photoshop and do the masking there to avoid the problem I detailed, but I was wondering if there was a way to solve this problem in LR CC 2015.
