• Create a type layer. (See "Creating type" on page 342.)

• Create a shape layer. (See "Creating shape layers" on page 201.)

• (Photoshop) Save a selection as a mask, or create a new alpha channel and use the painting and editing tools to modify it. (See "Storing masks in alpha channels" on page 280.)

• (ImageReady) Use a selection tool to select an area of the image. (See "Making pixel selections" on page 157.) Either save the selection using the Select > Save Selection command, or choose the Save Selection command from the Channel pop-up menu in the weighted optimization dialog box.
