Chapter 10. Creating Layer and Channel Masks > Blending Images with Layer Masks

Blending Images with Layer Masks

Layer masks make areas of an image appear transparent by painting with black. Then just as quickly, you can make those areas reappear by painting with white. There are obvious applications to the use of layer masks—changing a sky, removing a tree, or even removing a person who was cut off in the photo. For example, you have an image, and you want the image to change from line art to a normal photograph. To accomplish this, you'll need a copy of the image in a separate layer, a layer mask, and the linear gradient tool.
