Working with Masks

A mask hides some parts of an image and lets other parts show through. This is extremely useful when you want to hide parts of an image but you don't want to lose any data in your file by having to delete parts of it.

Earlier, we discussed one kind of mask: creating a clipping path for placing images into page-layout applications. But there are also needs for masking inside Photoshop itself—such as when you want to have one photo blend into another, or when you want to make a quick selection.
