    Hi Marc!

    Have you tried our Brush tool? 

    Here is more info about it: https://skylum.com/luminar/user-manual/2018/mac/masking-options-in-luminar

    Marc's request is certainly valid. Luminar's brush tool is a time-consuming PITA when trying to accurately assign a mask to an image. Julia, the link to the user manual was not working when I tried it a few minutes ago.

    Marc,

    If you are looking for the Brush tool, in Aurora HDR 2018 just use B shortcut.

    In Luminar 2018, you should add a New Adjustment Layer and also use B shortcut

    hallo Julia,

    I am not searching for brush tool in Luminar but ask for "EDGE DETECTION" while painting.

    lightroom calls it "AUTO masking" with a checkbox. ON1 calls it perfect brush.

    it detects edges, texture, color for accurate selection

    In ON1, you can alt clic on a blue color and paint between branches of green tree without touching green just blue between leaves,...

    you can refine it with a luminosity mask...

    i hope i am clear

    selection tools in luminar are missing for hairs, color, ...

    I too am looking for edge detection.  Had tried to do a sky overlay but my horizon was not straight and peppered with various flowers and such.  Without edge detection, I would have to manually create a brush mask, which just isn't practical.   Lightroom provides such a feature.

    I agree with all the above comments - an edge detection type of brush in Aurora HDR 2018 while painting would greatly help in defining masks with improved accuracy. Please provide this feature. Thanks.

    I am also looking for edge detection brush tool.. something that can select the hair strands.. Imagine, I am trying to change background and the subjects hairs are flying all over; how can I effectively change the background 100%? Its insane to zoom and paint and reduce brush size for every strand of hair..;-) and if I dont, the outcome looks completely unusable.

    Hi Bineet,

    Unfortunately, there's no selection tool available in Luminar that would speed this process up for you. At the moment, manually choosing the area with a brush is the most effective way. But I will forward your feedback to our developers to have them consider implementing this in the future.

    You can also remove or change the background in Photoshop and use Luminar as a plugin to apply the rest of the edits.

    This is one of the reasons I use Luminar as a plugin only. I'm not an Adobe fan, so I run Luminar in PhotoLine. Still waiting on the developers to make it work as a plugin in Affinity Photo.
