Hanging at the end
I quite like this tutorial, but it leaves me completely at the edge of the cliff at the end ;-)
The last step says:
"Here I've copied the mask we just made and applied it to a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer."
How, who, what, where? Did you create a new layer, copy the whole layer or just copy the Mask, somehow... ?
To my mind, this tutorial shows how to mask, without explaining how to utilise a mask once it's done.
But, thank you. I'm getting there.
There are several ways to copy a mask. You can add a blank mask (this is unnecessary for adjustment layers as they come with a blank mask in place) then alt/opt-click on the blank layer mask. This brings it up into the main editing window. You can then paste anything from the clipboard (ie: a layer mask from another location) into place.
You can also load a layer mask as a selection, then make a new adjustment layer and the new mask will be made automatically (or, if you're using a non-adjustment layer, add the layer mask and the selection will create the mask automatically).
And, in Photoshop CS2, you can opt/alt-drag a layer mask to another layer and it will automatically duplicate it.
There are many other ways to accomplish the same thing.
