Masking Tutorial by PeteMohrbacher Masking Tutorial by PeteMohrbacher
WATCH VIDEO HERE---> [link]

This is an overview of what masking is and how to use it. There are a lot of intricacies that I don't go over because I don't want to confuse people, but this should get you on your way towards stronger, faster and more effect use of Photoshop.

Though it sounds like minutia, I use these techniques constantly.

Te pic featured in this tutorial is Dumah - Angel of Dreams. Still a work in progress.

Enjoy!

I love how you've been packaging these videos with totally juicy educational material. There seems to always be things to pick up on in PS, even if I've already heard similar approaches before. I'm definitely keeping my eyes peeled for more.

Have already been using them but it's a great reminder and kinda push me to go and experiment a bit more with the clipping one. Thanks! :hug: :+fav:

You're absolutely amazing.

It's wonderful that you want to share these tips, alot of artists are a bit edgy about revealing their 'secrets'.

Most helpful, thank you so much.

This one was really helpful. I apreciate when you use the CS2 conversions, because the hotkeys for CS versions of Photoshop are different, so I end up trying to figure out where in the tabs these tools are that you mention because the PS7 hotkeys don't always work for me.

I'd like to see a tutorial on soft versus hard shading due to varying light sources, if you please. :3

It is rare to find someone so willing to share their knowledge. It loses it's value when it's said repeatedly, but it's deserved. Thanks a bunch!

Now I just have to get off my lazy butt and actually practice these techniques... xD

Clipping mask I abuse all the time, but layer masking I have always failed at. This tut lays it all out in English and is seriously useful stuff.
