I like using Smart Filters because they let me adjust things later, and because I get a mask to control where the filters are applied.
The problem is that this mask applies to all the smart filters present on a given object.
Suppose I've got a photo and I want to apply the Lens Correction filter to the whole photo. On the same photo, I want to apply the Smart Sharpen filter. But I want to apply a mask to this filter. Can I do that?
Right now I've been duplicating the smart object and applying the filter I want to mask individually on to the top copy, and then masking the top copy. But this is a pain, and it takes incredible amounts of memory and disk space.
Is there a good way to apply a mask to a single smart filter?
