Lightroom: Basic - making the sliders more "custom"
You know how in Lightroom, in the Develop module, in the Basic panel, you can press ALT when you click on a slider to see a "mask" representation of the image to be sure you're not pushing pixels too far? Well, my "idea" is based on mixing this concept with the handles at the bottom of the curve histogram (where you fine tune what parts of the histogram are represented by dark, shadow, light, and white). Here's what I'd like to see: a shortcut key similar to ALT that when pressed allows me to see a mask representation of the image - but only those pixels I will actually be affecting with that slider. Then, if for example, I feel that the black slider is adjusting too much of the image, I should be able to adjust a slider on the Histogram to lessen the amount of the image that this slider is adjusting.
