With our castle properly toned, the crenelations don't look…so great, so let's take care of that next.…We'll be adding some more adjustment layers.…So in order to stay organized, let's rename…the curve that toned our castle, castle curves.…We have the light side and dark side crenelations on different layers.…So using a regular layer mask on the adjustment layer…will work better than a clipping mask like we used…to tone the castle in the last lesson.…Let's start by creating a selection from all of the dark side crenelations.…
And this will require some fancy selection loading like we did in the form section.…Load the selection from the crenelations one layer by…Cmd or Ctrl clicking into the layer thumbnail preview.…Get rid of all of the light side crenelations on this layer.…And then we…need to intersect with the layer mask which is Cmd…or Ctrl plus Option or Alt plus the Shift key.…Click on the layer thumbnail preview for the mask.…Now we have all the dark sides crenelations on that layer in a selection.…
