I was watching my son color grade an image using the color wheels in the Lightroom Color panel. He is able to push specific colors into either shadow, highlights or mid-tones. This is a great feature. Is there a way to do something similar in DXO 4?
The HSL panel seems to adjust based on the color. I can adjust the brightness of a color but I can’t push a color into the shadows, or highlight areas of the image.
The Tone curve only adjusts the brightness of the selected RGB.
Nice to see that you’re still using PL.
What you want could be done rather easily with HSL if, instead of being only a hue, the source color would take into account the luminance. We would also need to be able to set color adjustments to some memory slot. (Layers maybe ?)
I voted for your suggestion. Remember that you can also vote for it… rather strangely, I must say.
If you’re looking to color-grade like Lightroom or Capture One, your not going to find that with PL4 or DXO.
My only guess is these features of technology are patented in some way/shape/form. I can’t imagine that Capture One has engineers that have more sophistication or resource available to them than Adobe. But who knows? I still can’t believe it’s taken almost 4 years for Adobe to barely even come in the same arena as Capture One with color adjustment in Lightroom.
I’d still take a more advanced curve panel and levels over color grading at this point, holding out all votes for that
