Recalling a selection from a mask

13. Open the file Sky.jpg from the companion CD. Press Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C to select all and copy to the Clipboard. Close Sky.jpg without saving.

14. Choose Edit > Paste Into; a new layer appears with a mask in the shape of the selection. In the Layers palette, rename this new layer Clouds. Press V to select the Move tool, and drag the clouds around until you find an aesthetically pleasing position for them inside the window boundaries. Change the blend mode of the Clouds layer to Soft Light, and set Opacity to 50% to partially reveal the Intensity layer below (see Figure 6.28).
