Like many of the adjustment tools in Capture One, the Color Editor tool can be used in conjunction with the Layers tool for localized adjustments. The Advanced mode can be used when adjusting a color under mixed lighting, for example, and with the Skin Tone mode. If you have captured a group of people in an image, using masks for skin areas on different layers enables you to adjust and blend tones separately for each person. You can also create masks from color selections directly within the Color Editor, enabling you to apply other adjustments beyond color, saturation, lightness, and uniformity.
If the masks overlap on different layers, the results are accumulative when making localized color adjustments using the Color Editor. For example, when moving the Hue slider one way towards another color on one layer, the effect will be offset when moving the slider the opposite way on another layer. Alternatively, moving the slider the same way on both layers will, in effect, move the hue further around the color wheel, resulting in a larger hue shift.
