    Mask on text to remove part of it

    You have to select the mask. You may be doing something else that I'm not aware of. You have to describe exactly what you are doing and what tools you are using. Once the lines are created on the template layer, turn the layer off, and then hit Cmd/Cntrl + click the thumbnail of the template...

    Mask on text to remove part of it

    I can create a "Line Template" layer that can be selected and added to the layer mask at anytime.

    Mask on text to remove part of it

    Hello and welcome. I have moved your thread to the proper forum. First off, you do not need a vector mask with text. If all you are doing is creating a "text fade effect" from the bottom of the text, you can use a standard layer mask. Here I have used the Gradient Tool to create the fade...

    Specific What am I missing? - Smart Object

    It would seem that you have only re-named the layer and not made any changes to the smart object. This is only a layer name. It changes as you highlight different layers. You have to double click the smart objects layer thumbnail which open the editable .PSB file. After editing, just save...

    Polygon shape is grainy (pixeled)

    Your example photo (1000px x 628px) is low res and was also aliased. It was certainly a copy that contained artifacts. The original was probably much larger. It just appears better when viewed at 100% zoom.
