Re: Masking Tip- one more

Shift click on the mask disables, it. Henry thanks for these tips too. They really will help me when I want to paint the mask. The "\" key is awesome.

I found the first one one this forum and stumbled onto the second
by a fortuitous mistake.

To view a mask in its raw form select simply Alt-Click the mask
icon in the layers pallet. Alt-Click to return. In this mode you
can treat the mask as a stand alone image and manipulate it as you
wish. For example you can reverse it or copy it to another layer

To view your masking select the mask and then press the "\" key.
Press it again to return.

This is one of the most useful threads in quite a while. Thanks to
all who contributed,
