After seeing few stunning edits with RT Local adjustments on my previous posts, I began exploring RT-Dev for local adjustments. Now I am so addicted to it that I tend to prefer it to RT-5.8 most of the times Really awesome… Comments by @Jade_NL and videos by @Andy_Astbury1 were a great help. Thank you guys…
In this picture, my objective was to bring the Passion flower alone brightly in the foreground and leave the rest dimmed and darker. I used three spots - Red flower, yellow/green stamens and the rest of the green image. Although I am happy with what I am seeing, I thought excluding spot method might have helped in dimming the background, but I could not do that.
Excluding spot - What is excluded? I thought everything in the scope of Preview-Delta-E (ie whatever appears in green color) is excluded and rest that falls within the spot boundary is the object for change. But I suspect this is not what it means. Would appreciate some clarification.
Spot vs spot shape - Clearly the spot is the circle whose diameter can be changed. And the “RT-Spot shape” is the boundary (Eclipse/Rectangle). Would “Spot boundary” be a clearer term than RT-Spot shape for documentation purposes? Just a suggestion.
