    No need to reply on this one I found the answer. I was painting onthe mask with what I thought was pure black, but instead it was just a shade lighter. I noticed when I enabled quick mask the foreground color changed just slightly lighter. After putting it back to black it worked fine.

    Quick Mask Selections

    I hope someone can help me with this problem. Why, when I create a selection using a quick mask, and then copy the selection to a new layer it always has transparency even though everything is set to 100% opacity. Using any other means of creating a selection and copying to a new layer works fine.

    by PixelMover
    here's one I haven't come across earlier..
    When using quick mask, the area I mask is pale red, as if I had set opacity to 10% or so..
    And when I exit quickmask, the whole image is selected (as in 'select all'), not the part I masked.
    Checked all my settings, opacity is 100%, mode...

    How Do I Add My Selection to A Layer Mask?
    by bobzilla
    I know how to paint in the Layer Mask to make a mask, but say I use the Lasso or Magic Wand or Color Range to make a selection. How can I transfer that to my Layer Mask?

    I'm in PS 7.
