Chapter 7. Working with Adjustment Layer... > Creating Masks with Selection

Creating Masks with Selection

You can create an instant mask using traditional selection techniques. Before creating the adjustment layer, select the area of the image you want the adjustment applied. Use any of Photoshop's selection tools for this purpose. When you create the adjustment layer, Photoshop converts the selection into a mask, and only the selected areas of the image receive the adjustment.

Create Masks with Selection

Use any of Photoshop's selection tools to create a selection around the area of the image you want the adjustment applied.

Select the Layers palette.

Click the Create New Fill Or Adjustment Layer button, and then select from the available adjustments.

Photoshop creates a mask based on your selection with the selected areas receiving the adjustment and the non-selected areas masked.
