About masking layers

Masks control how different areas within a layer or layer set are hidden and revealed. By making changes to the mask, you can apply a variety of special effects to the layer without actually affecting the pixels on that layer. You can then apply the mask and make the changes permanent or remove the mask without applying the changes.

There are two types of masks:

• Layer masks are bitmap images and are resolution-dependent and are created with the painting or selection tools.

• (Photoshop) Vector masks are resolution-independent and are created with the pen or shape tools.
