I am trying to figure out why the graduated filter seems to be working in reverse.. When I pull the filter onto the image, it starts out as brilliant white and fades into the image - as opposed to what i'm used to; Black (shadowy) fading into the image.
At first, I thought I should turn all the highlights-whites-exposure etc <down on the tool itself. That did nothing but make it look pale grey.
So anybody know how to get the GF back into darkening-mode? I also tried going into settings>Reset all settings. Nope.
It does not show in your screen-clip, but it is likely you have the Exposure slider moved 'up'. (I do not see the panel for the Gradient filter!)
Leave the highlights, whites, shadows, blacks, sliders all at '0'
Adjust one slider at a time as you judge the result.
Thanks.. It just started working again. I did what you said, but then what you said is what I was already trying for a half hour. Working, but now stumped as to why making the exposure adjustment didn't work before. Oh well, hopefully it won't do that again.
