Another way to apply a mask is directly to a tool.  This workflow allows you to isolate the results of a specific area.  Perhaps it’s to enhance just the sky or to add details to a specific area of an image.  The use of the Gradient Mask and Radial Mask mode can be helpful to smoothly blend a filter.

To create a Tool Mask:

  1. Select an individual tool in the Edit sidebar.
  2. Click the Edit Mask button below the tool.
  3. Choose from one of the four types of masks: Brush, Radial, Gradient, or Luminosity.
  4. Use the techniques covered in this chapter to edit the mask.
  5. When satisfied with the mask, click the Done button.
