"Expose to the right" is a popular refrain among digital photographers these days. Follow the advice, and you can end up with pictures that have a clipped channel. No highlight warning. The histogram does not indicate a problem, either. It's only when you get back and load your images into your RAW converter that you learn about the clipped channel.

Saturation masks allow you to make smooth saturation adjustments in order to bring back some highlight detail from the precipice and reeestablish smoother tonal transitions. You can also use their inverse to boost muted colors without oversaturating portions of the image that already have saturated colors. Read my new tutorial, "Restore Those Clipped Channels," to learn how to use saturation masks in your color correction.


My TLR Saturation Mask action set makes it easy to generate saturation masks.
