Lightroom Classic: Is "revert selection" possible with LR - I have been using LR since 2005 or so but always wondered whether it is possible to revert a selection or a mask taken. this would be one of the most useful features when editing and obviously no problem in Photoshop. Am I missing something? Thks for your assistance and cheers

PS: when I am editing a mask in LR how does the sharpening work within the selected area? is it always the same? or does it use parameters given for the non-maslked area?

Yes right there on the Radial Filter option section at the bottom. Invert.

If you are asking about the Adjustment brush then no not that I know of and really not needed. Don't brush where you don't want to make adjustments.

Sorry - you never have taken landscapes, where you'd like to treat sky and foreground differenttly? Revert or invert a mask would be very useful
