    I’ve spent the last couple of days learning how to use Luminosity masks. They are very cool, wish I had learned this sooner. I’m still a novice, but I started with Nitro and was getting frustrated, so switched to Affinity Photo. Using AP, the process was more intuitively. The big difference is that Nitro uses a set of sliders whereas AP uses a graph of tonal ranges in the X axis and opacity in the Y axis. Moving the curve and adding new anchor points was more intuitive, with a greater selective ability. Having a live view option and ability to save presets are bonuses. After getting what I wanted in AP, I went back into Nitro to try and replicate the mask, but the sliders don’t have the same range. Maybe I just need more practice.

    Could a graphical tool be included in Nitro for making luminosity masks?

    Hi Mike,

    It’s an interesting idea. I have not looked at Affinity so I don’t know what is involved there. The range of the sliders is basically black to white, so that should be the full range, but perhaps the way it works is not optimal.
