    You can… sort of. If you use the adjustment brush to highlight an area
    (such as the car’s lights), you can then adjust certain parameters such as
    contrast, exposure, saturation etc. However, for more detailed adjustments
    such as colour adjustments, you have to use photoshop or similar.

    I was wondering if you can highlight an area that you do not want the tone
    curve to affect when making changes. for instance if I am editing a picture
    of a car and the driving lights are the same color as something in the
    background I want to change but I dont want to change the color of the
    driving lights….make sense?

    If you’re getting the shot correct in camera, there’s no need for severe
    changes when retouching.

    No problem. Glad the video helped. I’ll be doing a more comprehensive video
    about the tone curve and all its functions very soon.

  9. WeAreSoPhoto says:

    In the bottom right of the tone curve box, there’s a miniature tone curve
    icon which, if you hover your mouse over, should say “click to edit point
    curve”. Click there and your tone curve should become editable.

    I can’t for the life of me get the tone curve slider to move vertically
    without pulling the rest of the line. Is there something I am doing wrong?
    I’m using LR4.
