Hour 12. Using Masks > Layer Masks

Layer Masks

A layer mask allows you to hide and reveal parts of a single layer. Layer masks, like Quick Masks, can be edited. One advantage of working with a layer mask is that, if you don't like the result, you simply discard the mask, and your image is left untouched. If you like what you see, apply the mask to make the changes.

Not on the Background

You can't place a layer mask on the Background layer. If the image is on the Background layer, you can double-click it in the Layers palette and rename it. This removes the associated properties of a Background layer.
