Chapter 2. Selection Primer > Quick Mask Mode

Quick Mask Mode

Remember when we were talking about the marching ants and how they can't accurately show you what a feathered selection looks like? Well, Quick Mask mode can show you what a feathered selection really looks like and can also help create basic selections. The quick-mask icon is located directly below the foreground and background colors in your Tools palette (Figure 2.94). When the left icon is turned on, you are in Standard mode, which means you create selections using the normal selection tools, and they will show up as the familiar marching ants. The right icon enables Quick Mask mode, and that's where selections will show up as a translucent color overlay.
