Hour 12. Using Masks

Hour 12. Using Masks

Masks can be your best friends when you're working on a complicated picture. They can also be a darned nuisance, simply because there are several different kinds of masks that you can apply to your image, and they do somewhat different things. So you not only have to create a mask, you have to know ahead of time what you want the mask to do for you, and then you have to apply the right kind of mask.

So, what exactly is a mask? In a sense, any selection that you make is a mask, because it permits you to do something that affects only the selected area, effectively masking anything that's not selected. Masks can let you change one part of a picture, without changing all of it.
