I used the control points to darken the sky in the attached image and I ended up with 3 blotches. Can some one tell me what I did wrong?
They’re too small !
The circles can overlap.
A advice !?
If the goal is to obscure the sky, Graduated filter is a better tool
I agree the graduated filter is the best for skies, but, if you press M after applying multiple points, the mask can be seen and the circles adjusted to merge the masked areas.
I’ve lost the radial menu… where is it? Once I find it I will try the graduated filter on my pink sky.
• In the upper menu~tool bar select the blue “Local adjustments” button.
• In the image, control-click where You wish to place the radial menu.
Thanks Jim, found it and my pink sky is darker and looks good. I will re-read the manual and watch the videos again and keep plodding along.
It seems to me there is also a tutorial
