local contrast enhancement on CIC


This looks very similar or even identical to what Martin used to teach LONG time ago, so I'd like thoughts and comments please on whether anyone still uses it and if not why not

Personally I find it too easily blocks up the shadows but that may be because Im doing it wrong (wrong settings etc) and/or that I haven't been using blending modes when I should be (because I haven't understood them properly still!)

thanks

Re: local contrast enhancement on CIC


Local contrast can be very useful but if you are doing it on a colour file, make sure you change the blending mode to luminosity otherwise you risk changes to saturation.

Here is a link to the Mid-Tone Action I use for targeting just the mid-tones
