Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Quick Mask mode, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.

One of the ways that you can fine tune …your selections, is with Quick Mask mode. And many photographers appreciate using …Quick Mask mode, because you're painting onto the image in areas that you want to …include or exclude from the selection, rather than tracing along an edge.…

And so Quick Mask mode is often times …appreciated, as a great way to fine tune your selections. …Let's take a look at how its done. I will start off by creating a basic …selection, lets assume we want to apply some adjustments to just the whale here, …perhaps opening up a little more shadow detail. …
