Lightroom: Local Adjustment missing functions

Hello
Working on Lightroom on a daily basis, i find that the local adjustments are missing some very important settings.
Please is it possible to add to both the brush and the grad filter the following:

-White (why is it not there? i mean the white slider is really a game changer, why is it not possible to use it localized?)
-Black (same as white... i am stunned it is not there and it needs to be asked to be implemented)
-Vibrance (as we know it is very different from saturation and in many occasions would be great to be able to use it localized...why is it not possible?)

- HSL panel ( having the possibility to use localize HSL on each color, it would be GREATLY USEFUL )

PLEASE implement these functions, all these functions are already avsailable in LR so cant be too difficult to just add them to the local adjustment

thanks

Matteo

Hi Matteo

You're not the first to ask. If it was as easy as you think then we would already have them. BTW, I believe the adjustment brush saturation behaves similar to vibrance in the main sliders... Who knows what will arrive in LR5.

In the mean time, consider:

substitute for +whites local:
* +whites globally, and then -highlights locally (and/or -exposure and/or -contrast).

substitute for -blacks local:
* -blacks globally, and then +shadows locally (and/or +exposure and/or -contrast).

substitute for HSL local:
* white balance and/or colorizer, perhaps in conjunction with saturation adjustment.

Thanks Rob for your advices, often is what i do, or try to do.
The problem is that i can't really achieve in this way the same result, if, for examples, the white slider were in the local adjustment.
Highlights and white behave in a different way (otherwise there would be any reason to have 2 different sliders)
Same is for blacks

Regarding HSL, the problem with this approach usually comes in with the lack of precise tools to accurately select a part of the image
Most of the time you are going to end up with an halo of a different color while having the HSL sliders in the local adjustment, you could for example just target a color and only pixels with that color would be effected having a much greater control and cleanliness to the image
Plus find a colorizer to change a color, is (at least for me) very slow and frustrating way to do it

Too bad in LR5 none of the above have been implemented...
damn it

Feature request for lightroom local adjustments:
Hello i would love to have on the brush tool, and grad filter the following sliders:
-White (why is it not there? i mean the white slider is really a game changer, why is it not possible to use it localized?) Highlights and white behave in a different way (otherwise there would be any reason to have 2 different sliders)
-Black (same as white...)
-Vibrance (as we know it is very different from saturation and in many occasions would be great to be able to use it localized...)

- HSL panel ( having the possibility to use localize HSL on each color, it would be GREATLY USEFUL )
i know we can use the brush and change the color temperature or even add some colors,
the problem with this approach usually comes in with the lack of precise tools to accurately select a part of the image

Why only in CC? Why is the non-subscription Lightroom 6 getting cut-out of features? What was the point in selling a non-subscription version (which I vastly prefer) if it just slowly loses out on features?

"The Saturation slider in local adjustments (graduated filter, radial filter or adjustment brush) is a cross between the two. + values behave like + Vibrance, but—values behave like—Saturation."

Honestly it makes even less sense...
if it is really a cross between the 2 why not put the 2 separate sliders?
they behave definitely in a different way...

Thank you, that's worth knowing. Seems an odd design all the same.

Nothing more to add to the topic title. Except maybe consider other additions to local adjustment tools. Auto Tone maybe?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled More flexible HSL filter?.

I would love if you guys would add HSL to the circular, gradient and brush filter. This would really aid me in doing color correction when working on architecture / interior photos. Many times I would like to pull orange, yellow or blue from a selected area without affecting the whole image. HSL adjustment layer to PS CC would also work, but would not be quite as convenient. Thanks :)

Pretty much every time I have to process anything shot in available light (most days) I wish that LR had HSL in local adjustments. I constantly defend and wave the flag for LR but this is a strong case for switching to Capture One for me.

It would be great to have a vibrance slider for the Adjustment Brush and Radiant & Graduated Filters.
