  • Ps cc 2015.5

    I was just wondering if anyone here has tried the new Photoshop 2015.5. If so have you experienced any difficulty with the new "Select and Mask Feature," TIA

    I don't even know what that is. I mask complex shapes using channels.

      There are a lot of comments online about how poorly it works. I have also had issues with it. Hope Adobe remedies that.

      Here's one well known retoucher commenting on it: http://retouchist.net/blog-1/2016/7/...e-in-photoshop

        I just tried it with no problem at all. It's pretty slick. Make a selection, I use the Quick Selection Tool, go to Select/Select and Mask. The Refine Edge dialog will open. Chose you setting, and click OK. Nothing appears to happen, until you select an adjustment layer, then the selection you made creates a layer mask. Very nice for selective tone adjustments.

          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...

          Select Masked out object
          by ylwdog
          I have a masked an object. I now want to select that object and copy it w/out the mask and paste it to a separate layer or file.
          I attempted to use a quick mask on this layer on the object not the layer but that selected the entire area including the masked out portion.
          Any suggestions?...

          PS6.0 QuickMask problem
          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.

          Thanks...
