Protecting areas with masks

All right, so we have seen this amazing demonstration of Content-Aware-Scaling that was just breath taking and then in the next exercise, we found out that actually a few of the details didn't hold up too well. Some things turned out great but then other things didn't. And those things that didn't are critical enough that we don't want this image to go out the door. So how do we do a better job? How do we protect our image so it doesn't get all messed up? Well, there's two approaches that you can take. One is you can mask the details that you want to protect, and then the Content-Aware Scale command will do its best to go ahead and respect those masked areas. And then in the next exercise, I'll show you a better approach that requires less work.
