Sometimes, where the color or lightness differences along the edge of what I want to select, the mask "bleeds" over into what I don't want to select. Other times, the reverse (the auto mask won't select everything I want because there's too much contrast). The threshold for this setting should be user adjustable for each brush (ideally for each brush stroke, but that might be harder to implement.)

I think this is a fine idea, Robert.

I voted for this, although I think the auto-mask needs a *lot* more love than just a sensitivity adjustment.

I too think that the adjustment brush auto mask needs a sensitivity slider. I was trying to burn a white t-shirt in a candid photo to make it less prominent and despite it being all one colour I ended up with a very spotted effect and had to go over it again with automask turned off

The Auto Mask is in most cases only useful in LR when you are working over a almost solid color. It would be nice if I could dial a tolerance just like in PS.

I'll love to be able to dial a tolerance on the Auto Mask in LR..
