    Masking Tutorial?

    Hello, is there a basic masking tutorial anywhere? I used to be GREAT at it but it's now been 10 years. I was taught by a colleague at University when I was masking small images from currencies to use in a print. I remember I needed to do something with layers first (or be sorry later) & needed...

    Daily Tutorial #1 Transparent T-Shirt

    I have always stated that I try to do at least one or more tutorials a day.

    Masking problem

    I'm having a really weird Photoshop problem, wondering if anyone has experienced this and can tell me what's going on. Masking is not completely masking. When I go to the layer mask (not vector) and paint with a black brush, the pixels are not entirely going away. In other words, it looks like...

    Masking question

    :neutral: OK. So I created a mask to drop out the background of an image. Then I create a new file with the canvas size I need. In that file I create a solid fill layer. Now I paste my masked image into the new file and the background of this image appears to opaque white. I am under the...
