It would be great to have more control over the split toning tool. For example it would be very helpful if the affected areas could be defined with a masking tool.A third slider to define toning of midtones is also missing as a slider to keep skin tones unaffected. It would be great to keep people looking natural while the rest of the image could be toned to the desired look.Kind regards,Michael

I think the concept of limiting whole process of selective editing in LR to specific items is wrong. I wish they had separated masks that could be selected and then any "global" edit could be applied to the mask area. Tough to get a good, simple UI for this, but the layers paradigm seems to work for most editing programs.

Adobe has this in Premiere, not sure why it's not in Lightroom. It's a big time saver for color work.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Add "mid-tone" to "split-tone" in Lightroom.

Please add a mid-tone slider for "split-toning" so we can control Low, Mid, and High value color-grading.

This is one powerful feature Capture One is competing against you on.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic: lightroom menu --> spilt toning menu to be highlights, midtone.... is very vulnerable to feedback on non-English speaking countries. In future Lightroom programs, I would like the menu for spilled tone to be developed in areas such as highlights, midtones, and shadows.
