Alright, let's go ahead and wrap things up here. I am going to press Ctrl- a couple of times to zoom out. Then, I am going to fill the screen with the image and tab away the palettes, so that we can focus on our completed composition. It is absolutely amazing what you can do with masks inside Photoshop, but it's a little bit overwhelming as well, especially if you are trying to take in the entire topic in a single chapter like this one here, which is why I have devoted an entire series to this topic. It's called Photoshop Channels and Masks, and it's available to you here at the Lynda.com Online Training Library totally free to those of you who are Lynda.com members or premium members.
And I need you to understand as opposed to trying to cover all of Channels and Masks in a single-hour-plus-long chapter like this one, I devote more than 21 hours to the topic, that's how much information there is. It is amazing. So definitely, give it a try, what you've done with this series or what have you, go ahead and check it out, and I think you will find it very aluminating indeed. In the next chapter, we are going to see how you can sharpen the perceived focus of an image here inside Photoshop.
