Since publishing the original tutorial on luminosity masks in 2006, I've been very much aware of the impact they can have on an individual's photography. Many people have written to tell me how useful these methods have been to them (see user comments below) as well as to ask for help learning these techniques and incorporating them in their workflow. Luminosity masks make photographers more creative, and over the years I have offered actions, tutorials, and luminosity mask panels to make them easy to use. The latest offerings are below. Some are free and others are relatively inexpensive. They work equally well on Mac and Windows computers and there are options that work in Photoshop 2020 and 2021, Photoshop CC, and Photoshop Elements. All items are provided via a download link sent to the email address you enter when purchasing.
I've also partnered with Sean Bagshaw who has created several excellent video series to explain luminosity masks and related techniques. His videos can be purchased below as well. Other international partners include André Distel in Germany, Antonio J. Prado in Spain, Rafael Coutinho in France, Roy Yuan in China, and Isabella Tabacci in Italy. The buttons below provide access to the panel along with the teaching materials they have developed in these different languages.

With nearly 20 years experience, Sean Bagshaw has collected a wealth of knowledge about photography. His artistic approach to image development makes use of many specialized techniques that infuse his pictures with light, color, and drama. In this newest video series, he takes you step by step through some of his favorite methods for creating the best light using Photoshop. The ultimate goal is to help you discover your own personal interpretation of the light and to find new ways to bring balance, creativity, and excitement to your photographs. Watch samples.
Sean Bagshaw's second "Favorite Techniques" series is again wide-ranging. Blending exposures is common with landscape photography, but doing it well requires choosing and properly utilizing the best method. There's an art to getting a good transition, and Sean shares his skills with different approaches. This series also takes a close look at unexpected challenges that sometimes occur in post-processing. Problem-fixing is the focus of several chapters, and, along with the artistic chapters, will insure you're well prepared to bring the best light to your photographs. Watch samples.
