2 Questions about masking
on: June 15, 2018, 11:10:31 AM
2 questions, please...

a) How can I paste into a Layer Mask?
b) I can’t find how to paint into a selection’s Quick Mask (with black to fully deselect, through greys, to fully select with white).

Would appreciate help with these.

a) disable mask, paste (new layer will be added), merge down created layer, reenable the
You can also enable mask for created layer, so base layer will have 2 masks. If layer has multiple masks they are first virtually merged like normal layers, then used to calculate pixels.

b) sorry, there is not „paint selection” tool yet. Workaround - create empty layer, paint area with Paint tool, then tap Select>Alpha To Selection>New

Many thanks for that guidance.

Still being slow getting familiar with Layers/Masks in ASPro, but will learn to manage it I’m sure.

Yes, will be good to see an editable Quick Mask.
