  • Red Mask inside Liquify won't go away :-(

    I was editing a file and somehow the entire file now has a red mask on top and wont allow me to make any edits inside the Liquify tool.
    If I remove the mask by deselecting the box I still cannot edit.
    This is an urgent situation. I am supposed to deliver these files now and the next to the last one is creating chaos.

    did you try to click the Show Mask check box? Or try erasing the mask. Maybe you have a selection on before you go to the Liquify Filter

      I just solved the issue. I believe it was a memory issue- after rebooting the issue resolved itself.

        It's more likely that it's a photoshop bug rather than one specific to the system's virtual memory. Photoshop's sub-processes should quit when you quit photoshop, at which point any memory allocated by it would be freed, marked for garbage collection, etc. regardless of whether the application has memory leak problems. If you have something like that happen, remember that you can always save out a mesh and restart photoshop. If you're worried about saving bad changes to the psd, just save it under a different name.

          Quick question,

          so when working with masks in photoshop on my laptop, using the "/" i get the nice red 50% overlay to see where my mask is..

          on my iMac, for some reason it goes black, i've probably changed a setting accidentally, but where is it?

          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.

          When do you use a "Difference Mask'?

          Yesterday I did a tutorial from Katrin Eismann's "Restoring and Retouching". It was the first time I had attempted a Difference Mask. When I had completed the tutorial I wondered why that method was recommended since an additional selection was required using another selection tool. ...

          by maverick911
          I have made a selection on an image in PS CS3 and created a mask. I have selected the mask so that it appears red on the image but when I clone, the clone still works on the red area. I thought the mask should protect the image under the red area? On my layers pallet I have Background and layer 1 containing...

          I have a clipping path and I want to apply liquify to the image but I also want to liquify the path.

          I know this can be done because I have done it before but I can't figure out how I used to do it.

          I have a layer as a smart object and attached to...
