Lightroom in 60-Seconds: How to See and Edit Your Adjustment Brush Mask

Here’s a quick way to see if you missed any areas when you were painting, how to fix those areas, and how to see if you accidentally painted over any areas you didn’t want to adjust.

Hope you found that helpful. 🙂

Thanks to everybody in Houston who joined me online for my full-day online seminar yesterday. Looking forward to the folks in Los Angeles tomorrow. 🙂

Have a great stay-indoors and stay healthy kinda day!


P.S. If you’re stuck inside (like me) don’t waste this time — you could be learning a bunch of Lightroom skills online. We’ve got TONS of full-length online Lightroom training courses can you take over at

    The problem isn’t hiding and showing the pins, it’s being able to find a small grey pin against a cluttered background when you don’t know where it is.

    How about a video on how to actually find the pin against a confusing background – especially when you are copying develop settings from another image or using “Previous” and don’t know where you put it!

      Use the “h” key to hide/show the edit pins (while you have gradient (m), radial (shift-m) or brush (k) active)

      On the toolbar that runs across the bottom of the image, there’s a selector on the far left side that lets you specify the logic of when they display and how. If you don’t see that “Show edit pins” tag, get the toolbar displayed by pressing “t”, again with one of the 3 tools active as above.

      That all works on US english keyboards.

      (And apologies to anyone who speaks british english on my thinking that we speak english in the US to begin with. 😉 )
