Thanks for the post.It is clear and I am going to read it over again soon. Now Was I correct in this assumpton listed below in the case of adjustment? ?

When you do a new adjustment layer the mask comes with it..is this right?

Smile Can it be Improved

Wow, Thanks. I never dreamed I would receive so many replies. I've just gotten back to the posting. I didn't realize that I could post a larger picture. This was my first post. Thank you for all of your suggestions! I will re-scan it as suggested . I'm sure that I will have some questions after I get started. Wish I had seen this earlier today. I could have been working on it. I opened some of the work that you did. I'm really impressed. But because the picture is so small, I'm afraid that I can't recognize the faces. Once I'm done, I will re-post my efforts. No, I haven't the negative.
One thing for sure, I will learn a lot if I am able to follow your directions. The gradient, I wouldn't have thought to do that.

Hi Neb, yes adjustment layers always come with a layer mask.

To add a blank (all white) mask to an ordinary layer, just click on the mask symbol (dotted circle) at the bottom of your layer palette. If you want a "Hide All" mask (all black), just Alt+Click on the mask symbol.

Note also, if you create a selection first, then click on the mask symbol, the area you selected will automatically become a mask (ie blacked out).

Hope this helps.

Gary
