This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Ability to Invert Adjustment Brush Masks

In Camera Raw, I often control the luminosity of subjects vs. background using the adjustment brush. It would be useful to mask the background, adjust its luminosity, then invert the mask to apply a separate and different adjustment to the luminosity of the subjects. However, as of 3/21/2018, ACR has no facilities to invert an adjustment brush mask and make it available for a separate adjustment. So, my suggestion is to please design such a feature and incorporate it into an ACR update.

I'd love a related feature which would perhaps help implement yours: the ability to save the masks created in LR or ACR to use in PS. While I agree that inverting a mask in LR would be very useful, I also find that sometimes I go through a lot of work in LR to create a mask and then realize that I'd like to follow up with using that mask in PS.

i think that's a great idea. Being able to save the masks as either layer or alpha would be a welcome addition. I'd also love having options for full mask fills and inversions, but i don't see that happening any time soon. CaptureOne has had these options for a while now, and there's a good chance that AdobeMktg doesn't want to be perceived as copying from a competitor. Even when the feature is needed...
