Click this button to add a control point. The mouse button changes indicating that you can place a control point on the image. After placing the control point on the image you may control the image’s light, contrast, and detail selectively using the controls provided.
The Size slider affects the reach of the control point. By increasing this slider, you can affect the objects similar to the object that the control point has been placed upon but are farther away from the control point. When set to 100% the control point no longer bases its effect on the location of objects within the image, instead relying solely upon the color, tonality and texture of the objects to determine whether or not to affect them. Decreasing this slider will make the control point affect only similar objects closer to the control point.
Each control point displays a size slider along with sliders to adjust the color and tonality of the selected object.
The following enhancement sliders are provided:
Brightness (Br) – Changes the brightness of the area or object selected.
Contrast (Co) – Changes the contrast of the area or object selected.
Structure (St) – Changes the structure of the area or object selected.
Amplify Whites (AW) – Increases the highlights of the object or area selected.
Amplify Blacks (AB) – Increases the shadows of the object or area selected.
Fine Structure (FS) – Increases the structure of fine details in the area or object selected.
Selective Colorization (SC) – Brings back the original color of the object or area selected.
Tip: After clicking on a slider, use the left and right arrow keys to increase or decrease the slider values incrementally. Use the up and down keys to cycle between the different sliders. Use the E key to expand and collapse the control point sliders.
Each control point has a Collapse/Expand twirler which when clicked will change the available sliders from Exposure, Contrast and Saturation to all sliders and back again.
