    Essential Photoshop Curves Techniques: 05 Making selective adjustments

    Make selective tonal changes to different areas of your image by painting Layer Masks to hide or reveal the Curves effect.

    For example, portraits often benefit from a boost in the irises.

    To achieve this, add a Curves Adjustment Layer and plot an S-shaped curve, then hit Cmd/Ctrl+I to invert the Curves layer’s mask to black.

    Then grab the Brush tool, set colour to white, and paint over the iris to reveal the adjustment.
