Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Paint masks, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- If you'd like more freehand controls over a mask…you could paint one by hand as well.…Let's make this a smart object.…And apply the Tiffen filter.…I'll reset the image and apply a strong look here,…just working with black and white,…so it's really easy to see things.…Remember, different black and white filters…really will change the result and if I filter out the reds…that door essentially becomes invisible…which looks quite different than if we filter out the blues.…
Now in this case, I'm going for a black and white building…and I'm going to put the sky back to full color.…So choose a preset that gives you a nice black and white…conversion on the building itself.…Then, with the layer selected, click to add a mask.…We'll just choose Paint.…You'll see here the ability to paint on the mask itself…now you could adjust the brush size…getting a larger brush and then paint the mask in.…
