In this video, learn how to add and use a layer mask.
- [Instructor] When we talk about nondestructive ways … of working in Photoshop we've got … to talk about layer masks. … Layer masks are essentially a way … of removing or erasing something … from your document but not permanently, not destructively. … We can always bring it back later if we change our mind. … And that's why this is so much better than erasing. … To add a layer mask to an image all you need to do … is click on this little camera looking icon … at the bottom of the layers panel … and it adds this little white box here … which is a layer mask. … If we click on the box to activate it, … we can grab a paintbrush with black paint … and paint on our screen but with the box activated … and it essentially erases. … And you can see the black I painted here in the layer mask. … But if I decide that I made a mistake and I didn't want … to erase that I can switch to white paint … and paint again on the layer mask or in the layer mask … and it restores everything I just painted out. …
