Local adjustments and clarity tool

Postby NNN635766906867029431 » Thu Apr 20, 2017 11:40 am

Dear folks,

I'm currently struggling with the clarity tool in local adjustments. Whenever I'm having a new layer for skin retouching and I brush a mask in combination with the clarity tool - I don't see any effects (softening the skin).

Am I doing something wrong, or is it not possible to use this tool in local adjustments and on a new layer ?

Regards

=)

Check that you use the Clarity tool for local adjustments (the one with the small brush to the right of its name) and not the global Clarity tool.

If it isn't a Local Adjustment tool, you can make it one via the ellipse (...) dropdown menu, then select Adjust Selected Layer

Thank you very much - it worked.

But I can't change the method, it is greyed out and stays "natural".

Is that normal, too ?

What is the processing engine used for your picture (in the Base Characteristics tool)?

You can't have a different clarity method on a local adjustment from the one used for the image as a whole. So if you want to use say "Punch" as the clarity method you have to set that as the method for the image as a whole while you are on the Background layer. Then when you switch to your adjustment layer it should show the method you have chosen (but still greyed out).
