Yes, I’d like to do that. What kind of control over the filter are you looking for? For example, are you just trying to apply a graduated filter to the image, or are you trying to use it as a mask for, say, tint, or sharpening, etc?
I think this is something that would add a ton of value, especially for photos of people. A large percentage of the time in Lightroom, I find myself applying a radial filter around the subject’s face, and then locally tweak exposure / sharpness / colours as needed (note that lightroom allows you to affect inside or outside the filter, which is very useful). It’s a very quick but impactful edit to make a subject pop out of a photo.
Nik, I know you’ve implemented custom placement of vignettes, but that’s not quite as effective when there are multiple subjects.
I know it’s bold to say this, but I often feel as though my photos edited in Raw Power are missing a little something-something. This could go a long way to solving that, for me at least. Two big thumbs up for this feature if you’re able to do it!
I’d just like to add a vote for a graduated filter, one of those where you get a line across the image to adjust exposure for sky and land, for example. My preference is for landscapes, so that would be a welcome addition.
