Descriptions for Lumenzia v9.0.0

Luminosity masks allow you to create gorgeous and realistic edits in Photoshop. Lumenzia allows you to use use them quickly and easily. Its advanced javascript engine handles all the luminosity masking complexity for you in the background, so all you need to think about is making beautiful images.

Key Benefits:

  • Select and mask anything, visually! With Lumenzia, you get a full screen preview of the mask before you apply it. Interactively click on the image to select (or deselect) the tones/colors to the degree you wish. No guesswork with adding and subtracting channels. Isolate the mask to to specific parts of the image with a simple selection. And you can combine group masks to easily see the overall mask impact. It’s never been faster and easier to create or customize the right mask. And the masks are created in 16-bits, allowing for smooth transitions in extreme masks.
  • Click to pick! You don’t have to know which mask to use, just use the built-in zone and range tools to create the right mask automatically.
  • It’s stays out of the way. Lumenzia offers a compact panel with only the buttons you need, and completely eliminates the need for the channels pallet. This leaves room to easily see your images big and beautiful, even on a laptop screen. Every action in Lumenzia creates just a single history step, so you can undo anything with <ctrl>-Z. And because Lumenzia is programmed in javascript, it’s smart enough to take care of errors and other tricky situations for you.
  • Simplify exposure blending. Automatically stack, align, and sort your exposures light to dark for blending.
  • Smaller files. Lumenzia doesn’t use channels, so your files stay small. A typical TIF file from a Nikon D800 grows from 200MB to 1.4GB when creating channel masks, but would remain the same 200MB size in Lumenzia. And Lumenzia can combine group masks to significantly cut down on file size, often reducing file size by 20-50%!
  • Beautiful vignettes with ease. Just draw a selection around the target area to create a vignette of any size, sharp, or position in the image. The vignette can be easily modified, inverted (to lighten the center) or combined with luminosity masks (to avoid darkening shadows too much).

Lumenzia features:

  • Streamlined workflow and completely custom masks
  • Sliders to easily customize the perfect luminosity mask
  • BlendIf and Vector masks (to save significant file space and avoid the need to update masks)
  • Ability to see and edit luminosity selections just like a layer mask
  • Add, subtract, or intersect any mask or selection for advanced control
  • Color masks (select by color and/or luminosity, visually)
  • Local Contrast Enhancement (easily and automatically bring out more detail)
  • Live masks (see the blended result immediately and try different masks)
  • Zone masks for precise refinement
  • Zone and Range pickers (select the right mask visually by clicking on the image)
  • Zone maps to visualize the image in zones 0-10 or show blown highlights/shadows
  • “Lighter/Darker” masks (select pixels relative to surrounding pixels)
  • Edge and Surface masks for halo removal and avoiding sharpening noise.
  • Refine masks to specific locations or colors in the image
  • Combine masks (merge group masks to save space and see exactly what is masked)
  • Advanced dodging and burning: revise dodge color/brightness, visual editing
  • Support for paths, to facilitate use of luminosity masks with hard edges in architecture
  • Split-screen to see the mask and image simultaneously
  • “PreBlend” to automatically stack, align, and sort exposures for blending
  • Save files >4GB which can be viewed in Lightroom
  • Custom vignettes
  • Non-destructive sponge tool (advanced saturation painting)
  • Saturation masks (color-specific vibrance control)
  • Apply or replace masks on existing layers with a single click
  • Luminosity and dust visualization tools to easily find and fix defects
  • Advanced sharpening methods for portraits (surface blur) and landscape (high pass)
  • Recordable actions to include light and dark masks/selections in your own actions.
  • Training and support videos, as well as a comprehensive written manual


RequirementsAdobe Photoshop CS6 or later (including PS 2021)
Installing Lumenzia

What’s New in Lumenzia (Luminosity Masking Panel) v9.0.0 for Photoshop

Lumenzia v9 is fully compatible with my Dodging & Burning Master Course and Exposure Blending Master Course. None of workflows demonstrated in the courses have changed, and they more information on v9 in section 1 to help answer any questions.

Fun fact: If you’ve been using Lumenzia since v1.0, you’ve now received 1,482 (free) new features, updates, and bug fixes in total.

Note: Lumenzia v9 is fully compatible with Photoshop CS6 and current versions of CC (including PS 2021). Lumenzia is compatible with both Windows and MacOS (including Big Sur and M1 / Apple Silicon).

  1. New: Out of Gamut Masks! Now you can easily target pixels which are out of gamut for printing or output to the internet. The mask/selection created is proportional to the degree to which the pixel is out of gamut and may be customized, so that you are in full control.
  2. New: Reload the last orange preview layers, including any customizations! This allows you to try different variations on your preview or just simply reload it, possibly using a different state of the image. This feature shows as a circular arrow instead of “X” when available (and is applicable when you have applied an orange preview as a selection or mask during the edit, have no orange/red preview layers currently showing, and the active layer does not have a BlendIf which can be cleared).
  3. New: Automatically fill in transparent gaps when using automatic image alignment via “PreBlend”. This helps avoid white edges when blending exposures and keep the absolute maximum image area.
  4. New: Automatically crop areas with transparent pixels when using automatic image alignment via “PreBlend”. This helps avoid white edges when blending exposures. Cropped pixels are not deleted, so you may use the crop tool to expand the canvas if you later wish to use a different crop.
  5. New: You can now automatically customize the workspace for Lumenzia and the Basics panel via “Optimize Photoshop” in the Utilities menu (top-right three bars icon in Photoshop CC). This arranges the panels like you see in most of my tutorials so that you can get right to work. [Requires Photoshop CC]
