Re: removing a shadow...

All - thanks for your help - I really appreciate it

Learninlady - I guess - I need to get better with the clone tool - I made several attempts, but was not able to get it to look as good as yours

Crazyfly1 - I discovered the issue - *forehead smack* - the image I posted here was a crop, and much smaller than the image of the model I was working on - on my image, when I create the new layer from copy, then the vector mask - then paint - it shows up as a tiny dot - because the percentage of the image size is so much smaller....I'm still yet to replicate your results, but at least now I know I was attempting it correctly

Oh - btw - I'm in the US as well, I was just up late fighting with Photoshop ;o)

Re: removing a shadow...

there are layer pallet options in the layers pallet where you can make your layer and mask icons larger, if that helps. BTW the mask you're working on is just a layer mask not a vector mask, if you added a mask on top of your mask the second one would be a vector mask .
