Focus on essential Photoshop concepts and techniques for creating accurate selections, alpha channels and layer masks for precision control in the modification of photographic images. Masks can be used in a variety of situations for many different tasks, including contrast and color correction masks for photographs and intricate masks for compositing multiple images together. In many cases, the beginnings of a mask are already present in your photograph; you just need to know where to look for it and how to modify it to suit your purposes.
