Problem: Lighten up graphite rings

Recommended Posts

The foto below is mounted in PDN by using a few layers. I want to light up the rings on the left by using the elipse tool and their combination: An inner circle for the inside edge (holding the ctrl-key) and another one for the outside edge using the subtraction mode. After lifting the finger from left mouse key the masking disappears. So there is no way masking the rings properly. What can I do?

Try selecting the entire ring first. Once you have that use the ALT key modifier (Subtract mode) to remove the center of the first selection.

Once you have the ring selected, apply Adjustments > Brightness and Contrast to your liking.


Then select the next ring and apply the same modification. The settings will persist in the B&C dialog - so all you need to do is accept the changes by clicking Ok.
