  • Paint Engine tricks by Fluffbutt

    Has anyone ever tried using paintengine on a mask channel?

    Wouldn't that be so cool, a paint mask, then you could, say, do a dry brush based on the mask, then invert the mask and so umm... ahh.. pallette knife!!..

    <oh boy, Fluffbutt wiggles his furry kitty cat tail and runs of to try it out!!!>

    Well !!!! THAT was interesting!!

    I also found another really good fun thingy to do - load up the luminance of a picture as a setting, do one PE preset, then invert the selection, and do another PE preset

    *** it's advisable to feather or gaussblur the selection before doing the 1st preset (the inverted selection will still be feathered)..

    This gives some really lovely impresssions...

    <Fluffbut runs off, tail wiggling, to try PE on one colour channel then another...damning his typos as he goes..>

      Quick mask and Layer Mask
      by camner
      Ok, so masking is really the equivalent of selecting, only easier (often) to work with. At least I think that's right.

      Making a selection and then applying a quick mask is easy. Extending the mask with a brush is easy. It seems to me that it's only useful if one can convert the mask...

      Quickest way to mask
      by Lynda99
      I've been using the magic wand to select for applying a drop shadow. It works fine except when the selection has colors similar to the background. Checking 'contiguous' doesn't help.

      Everything else seems sooo time consuming. Is there anything else that is fast?
