    Hi there!

    Please, note that we do have Adjustable Gradient tool, that allows you to selectively adjust exposure, contrast, vibrance, and warmth for 2 different parts of the image. 

    Here you can learn more about it: https://manual.skylum.com/4/en/topic/adjustable-gradient-tool

    Also here you can check our helpful video on how to adjust exposure using Light tools: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmvFuvxpO3g

    Hope you find this info helpful!

    Hi.  The way I do this is to use a virtual ND filter .  You would know of Neutral Density ND filters I am sure, but I prefer to achieve the same in post processing, to minimise the amount of glass between the subject and the sensor.  To do this I would use a virtual graduated ND filter .  I am happy to email you my filters if you would like.  You insert the filter , as a .tiff file, as an image layer, and then change the setting on the layer from normal, to multiply.  That gives you a graduated exposure gradient, and you can stretch it, transform it, rotate it, and adjust gradient opacity, in a very flexible way.
