- Here are our four windowpanes selected…along with the window boxes,…that we now want to deselect.…Previously, we looked at how we could deselect these…using the lasso tool, but that's rather fiddly.…Here's another approach.…If you press the letter Q on your keyboard,…then you go into Quick Mask mode.…And in Quick Mask, everything that is selected…is shown as clear, everything that is not selected…has this red overlay to it.…
And what's good about Quick Mask…is that we can use any of our Painting Tools…to make our selection.…So let's zoom in,…so we can see this more clearly.…Here, we can switch to the Brush Tool.…As we move the tool over the image,…the red circle shows where it's going to paint…when we press the button.…
If we hold the Control and Option keys together,…we can drag up and down on the tool…to make it harder and softer,…and we can drag left and right…to make it smaller and larger.…So let's go for a small tool.…We want to deselect this area…so we can just paint over this foliage.…And as we do so, we're not actually painting…
