About this workshop

Join us for the day and learn the power of Layer Mask and how it can complement your current Photoshop skills!

Layer mask is an editable and removable 8-bit Gray-scale channel that hides all or some of the pixels on a layer, depending on the tools and effects you are applying to it. White areas in a layer mask permit pixels to be seen, black areas hide pixels and gray area hide pixels partially. It is true to say: White Reveals and Black Conceals! With the layer mask thumbnail selected you can edit, deactivate and view the mask. You can move and copy layer mask to other layers at any time.
