The TK Basic V6 panel provides an easy way for photographers to start using luminosity masks. It's free when signing up for my (infrequent) email updates, installs in Photoshop CS6 and all versions of Photoshop CC, works on Mac and Windows computers, and employs advanced Photoshop calculations to make 16-bit masks. It has many useful and unique features.
The TK Basic V6 panel is essentially RapidMask2-lite. It has the same core process and speed, and similar layout and features as its big brother. There are many ways to use luminosity masks when developing images in Photoshop. Adding them as layer masks on adjustment layers and painting through active luminosity selections are the two most common techniques. The Basic V6 panel makes it easy to add these methods to the Photoshop workflow. It's a great way to not only learn what luminosity masks can do for an image, and also to see how easy it is to use them as the Rapid Mask engine does all the hard work in the background. Luminosity masks need to be fast and intuitive in order to become a standard part of a creative workflow. The TK Basic V6 panel makes this possible and is the ideal tool for quickly getting up to speed with these techniques.
