Chapter 15. Collage > Layer Masks

Layer Masks

By adding a Layer Mask to a layer, you can control exactly where that layer is transparent and where it's opaque. You'll find that Layer Masks are used to create most high-end images—this feature really separates the beginners from the pros. But there's no reason why you can't be as adept at Layer Masks as the most seasoned veteran. It just takes a little time and sweat.

The only layer that you can't add a Layer Mask to is the Background image. But you can change its name to make it become a regular layer (double-click to do this), and then add a Layer Mask.
