How to adjust HSL values on specific areas of photo using adjustment brush in Lightroom and Camera Raw. We can see slider control for temp, tint, exposure... But couldn't control the HSL values.

Also, Is there a Adjustment layer to control Luminance like we have for Curves, Levels, saturation... in Photoshop?

Any Alternative methods or Tips will be Helpful.


As far as I know, the only values that can be brushed are the ones shown in the brush. I would guess that Adobe feels the others are out of the scope of lightroom, which is "only" a image editing tool, not an image creating tool like photoshop. So maybe you'd need photoshop and use the RAW file from there.

  • @vishnu camera raw tends to do the same things that LR does. I wouldn't be surprised if they are the same thing internally. After all, LR is just some file management software wrapped around a raw processor. – null Jan 15 '16 at 13:36

Although quite laborious, one way to get to where you want to go would be to edit the raw file globally in Lightroom and export a separate version of the entire photo edited specifically for each of the areas you wish to develop differently. Then combine them using masking and layering in photoshop.
