Painting with the Overlay mode

Painting with the Overlay mode: Photoshop: Channels and Masks
Painting with the Overlay mode: Photoshop: Channels and Masks

You can increase the contrast of a mask selectively by painting with the Brush tool set to one of the contrast blend modes, in particular, Soft Light or Overlay—you can even use Hard Mix if you reduce the Opacity value. When set to either of these modes, painting with black darkens the dark areas and protects white; painting with white brightens the light areas and protects black.
