So, I’m trying to work with the equalizer. When I select parametric and drawn as the mask, I could adjust the parametric to where I wanted it, then, I wanted to use the paint brush to draw a mask which for which I wanted to assign the same polarity. But, when I finished the painted shape, the yellow mask only appeared on the painted mask, the parametric yellow disappeared. Assuming that this was to do with my setting for combining masks, I tried the other settings.
Now, I’ve gotten myself into a situation where, no matter what I do, I either have 100% yellow mask coverage that no longer responds to the sliders, or, if I switch polarity, all yellow disappears.
I am probably being dense, but I have read and watched tutorials, and, now, I am asking for assistance here.
I have a photo of my Standard Poodle, and, just for fun, wanted to isolate her against a brick background. Until you helped me in this thread, I had not found how to even create a blur (thanks, I’m over that hurdle). Now, I’m looking to complete my objective in isolating my puppy so that I can apply a blur to the background.
I’ve looked at some intriguing Gimp tutorials, and have followed one step by step, but, if I could learn to do this with darktable’s powerful masking, I’m guessing I could get the whole process down to a few steps.
I really appreciate your helpful comments. Any other tips you can offer would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.
