Internal competitions within the club have moved to a scoreless system. The old system has been replaced by one that includes 1st, 2nd, 3d, ‘Highly Commended’ and ‘Commended’. As of the second competition in this club year, a rule change allowed the judge to award any number of Highly Commended and Commended places that she or he chooses.
Adobe has finally introduced ‘Colour and Luminance Range Masking’ into the RAW converter as part of the recent update to Photoshop CC. This change makes it possible to target the effects of the brush, linear gradient and radial gradient tools more effectively. Just apply the tools in the usual way then tune the effects with the range slider. Easy! The process is illustrated in the video below.
