    If I'm working on an adjustment layer mask is there a command where I can actually see the mask on the screen instead of the photo?

          You can also hit the \ key to view it in Quick Mask mode (ie semi-transparent). This is handy from time to time.

            I am sure every beginner has this problem, yet I cannot find any tips on it. I am probably not looking long enough or in the wrong places

            I have an image detail that I need to mask, let us say it is too dark.
            Ok, I mask it using a contrast...

            warp a layer with it's mask??
            by Saucisson
            Hello all,

            Tis not often I ask for help!

            I'm trying to figure out how to (if possible) warp in cs3/4 a layer with mask, and affect the mask as well.

            Usually I check my mask, and apply, but for this job, I need to keep the mask in place.

            Mask tells no lies

            Easiest way to know you're doing good job "carving", shaping,shading or DNBining, whatever you want to call it is to take a look at your mask. If masks looks nothing like the person in the image, neither will results.

            Question about layer masks.
            by inskip
            I read the tutorials and I understand how to create layer masks. But, where I'm unclear when it comes to LM is how they relate to the other layers and masks. For instance, I have an image that needs to be color corrected, noise reduced and sharpened, therefore, it will probably have adjustment layers...
