Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting selections in Quick Mask, part of Photoshop CS5: Selections in Depth.
Earlier in this chapter, I showed you how to paint into a quick mask to clean up…the edges of the selection.…You can also paint directly into a quick mask without a selection active, and…then convert your quick mask into a selection to get some creative effects.…To show you that, I will enter Quick Mask mode by clicking the Quick Mask mode…icon here at the bottom of the toolbox.…You can't tell from the document that I am in Quick Mask mode yet, but that you will…in a second, when I start to paint into the mask.…I'll select the Brush tool, and then I'll go up to the Options bar, and I'll…click in the brush preset picker.…
I'll scroll down in this default set of brushes and select the scattered maple…leaves brush, and then I'll click in a blank area of the Options bar to close…the brush preset picker.…I'll move into the image, and I'll click and drag a few times to scatter some brush shapes.…It may look like I am painting directly on the image, but I am not.…I am actually painting onto the quick mask.…
