Layer Masks… what are they and how do you use them? I am excited to announce that I have partnered with Photographers Connection to bring to you, our awesome fans, this video series on Photoshop basics! This week I am going to teach you a little bit about Layer Masks and how they work.
If you’re not using layer masks while editing, you’re neglecting one of Photoshop’s most powerful tools!
What makes them so important? In a nut shell, they allow you to hide pixels without having to erase them, so you never truly lose any information.
Never fear, this tutorial will have you using layer masks like a boss in under five minutes. That’s faster than a freaky fast Jimmy John’s delivery person can bring you your lunch!
