Remember, you can apply the ACR Filter more than once for more aggressive and/or localized effects. Applying different ACR settings to local areas is challenging at first. While each Smart Filter can have an Opacity and a Blend Mode, only one mask is provided for all of the Smart Filters applied to a Smart Object. To get around this, you can nest a Smart Object with its Smart Filters as a new Smart Object and before applying another Smart Filter with a new mask; this offers a leaner file size at the price of a less clear layer stack and more challenging previews.
Unlike using separate adjustment layers that place many solutions in multiple layers, using the ACR Filter tends to place many solutions in a single layer, which can make it more challenging to mask and preview individual components.
