Modifying Vector Masks

Needless to say, none of the aforementioned techniques for modifying grayscale layer masks can be applied to a layer vector mask unless you rasterize the mask first. To modify a vector mask, click the mask thumbnail to select the work path; alternatively, if the layer is active, you can click the work path in the Paths palette (Window^ Paths). When the work path is selected, use any of the pen tools or the Direct Selection tool (A) to modify the path; if a pen tool is selected, you can select the Direct Selection tool temporarily by holding down Ctrl (Windows), ^ (Mac OS).
