Am I just doing it wrong? In Aperture when I went to “select” with an adjustment brush I could use an adjustment brush, paint it in and then “invert the mask” to effect or “not effect” the rest of the image. In Lightroom I see how to invert the “oval” tool to mask “inside” or “outside” the selection, but there does not appear to be a way to invert the adjustment brush. Am I just missing how to do this? Seems such an obvious feature it has to be me but I can’t figure it out.
The situition that caused this that I am trying to desaturate a picture except for the one person in the picture. In Aperture I would “color” in the person, invert the mask and desaturate the inverted mask. I did the same in Lightroom I colored in the person but could not figure out how to invert the mask. So instead I went to my global adjustment and desaturated the picture thinking my mask would “protect” the person in the picture. That was dumb obviously it does not work that way. So do I really have to recolor everything except the person? Obviously I could use photoshop but I like nondestructive editing in LR and why use 2 tools when one should work?
