Using Layer Masks

You can add a mask to a particular layer in the image so that you can hide part of the layer from display or even apply effects only to the area selected by the mask. By adding layer masks to various layers, you can mix and match effects as needed in the image.

You can’t add a layer mask to the background layer, so you may need to add another layer such as an adjustment layer or duplicate the background layer and delete the original to work with a layer mask on the background layer content itself. In some cases, you also may want to hide the background layer (by clicking on the eye icon beside it) to ensure that you can select only the image content that you want.
