Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Quick Mask mode, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- If you're not already happy with the possibilities…of the Marquee Selection and the Lasso Selection Tool,…there's another way to make a selection…and it's called the Quick Mask mode.…You can activate it here down in the tool palette…and I will just click it and now we see here…in our document bar that we are in the Quick Mask.…Well, it looks like nothing has happened…and if I use my brush tool now,…I will see that it paints in red.…
What's going on here?…I have black selected as a color,…why am I painting red?…The reason is…that I'm not painting color right now,…I'm painting a selection…and a selection is shown in red color.…Maybe this will be more apparent if I leave…the Quick Mask mode now.…Now I'm back in Standard mode…and I see the selection that I have just created…with my brush.…
If I now paint,…I will see that I'm…not painting the way I would expect,…I'm painting outside of my selection.…If I zoom out,…I will see what happened.…What happened is that the Quick Mask mode…created a selection that fills our whole digital canvas…
