Yep have to agree with Gary on that one, the masks seemed so cumbersome especially when you had an eraser and then the penny drops as to how much more flexible they are

Re: Your "a-HA!" moments

Ditto the "PEN" tool... I could never figure it out and always gave up.. once I got it I was amazed with my self...:+}
People should be posting links maybe to the things that made them go a-HA..
that would be great for all of us.
I do not have the pen tool video but if I find it I'll post it. Probably the same as the last person who mentioned the video also above me..

My A-ha moment was when I realized the power of adjustment layers as opposed to degrading the image and having to start all over again. Seems a long time ago, but was definitely A-HA!

Re: Your "a-HA!" moments

My favorite Ah-Ha! moment was regarding Art History. I even posted here a couple of times for help from Danny. I just couldn't seem to "get it", and then one night, it began doing its magic, and it's been my favorite PS tool ever since.

Thanks, Pat, for the welcome back. It's those a-HA moments that make it all worth while. (Also, with my memory, I have some them more than once!)

You're not alone there, I've lost count of the number of things I've "re-discovered" just lately.

Layers. My very first epiphany was layers. I've been digital imaging since before layers existed. It was such a foreign idea. As a matter of fact, there was no Undo back then, either.
