Free Photopea SMH Action

When processing photos it’s important to recognise areas of shadow, midtone and highlight (SMH) in order to understand how to meet your artistic goals as many of the tools within editing software are targeted at those regions. The SMH Action is a visual aid to identifying the extent of those tonal ranges.

Teaching materials often ask the User to apply an idea, preset or specific activity to the Shadow / Midtone / Highlight tonal ranges of an image. This presumes the User can identify those areas – which is not always the case.

The free SMH Action builds on the Understanding Tonal Ranges section by providing Photopea Users with the facility to create a ‘ coverage map’ of the tonal ranges. The download also contains ‘before and after’ images showing the outcome of the Action.
