Mastering Layer Masking

Level: Processing - Confident Beginner

One of the most powerful concepts to master in Photoshop is the Layer Mask.  It’s used on everything from photo restoration to graphic design, from special effects to photo compositing. To do this, you need to become adept at another powerful concept - Selections. In this class, RC Concepcion goes over all of the techniques used tocreate selections in Photoshop.  Once you are familiar with selections, we will turn them into masks that will give you even greater control of your images
