    Hi Mike
    Sitting here watching this on an extremely wet Durban afternoon. I really, really enjoyed it and feel more confident re. using the graduated filter tool. Am I being a bit stupid here but why does your masking turn green when mine turns red?

      Hello Sallie

      Thank you so much for taking the time to watch the episode & and very glad to know that it helped you.

      JHB is also extremely wet as well, Loving the weather!

      The reason why its green is because I changed it from red to green in my settings.

          Hello Sallie

          When using any localized adjustment tool, push O to see the overlay, then push and hold Shift and push O and you will see the colour change.

          Default colour – Red

          By following the above instruction you will see, green, white & black.
