Re: Any tricks to make this background true white?

I'm using CS3.  Everything seems to work according to your description and screenshots with one exception: I'm not able to Brush the Mask (your step #7) because of the following complaint:



If anyone knows a way around this error let me know.  (In any case I guess it's time to upgrade to CS6....)

Otherwise, I confirmed that for the masked white layer I'm filling with 255 white, and on the Adjustment Layer I'm clicking the white dropper on the background.  Both of those are going to 255 white, but the problem seems to be that the mask has preserved a small level of opacity across the entire background, so it's letting the original gray background through to some degree.
