Step 3: Create Layer Mask

Next you combine the two images by using a layer mask.

■ Click Layer 1 in the Layers palette if it is not highlighted.

All. Looking at the Layers palette now, you notice that there is a layer mask thumbnail just to the right of the Layer 1 thumbnail (see Figure 28.3); click it to make it the active layer.

■ Set black as the foreground color by clicking the Default Foreground and Background colors (D) icon at the bottom of the Tools palette and then press X.

■ Click the Brush tool (B) in the Tools palette. Click the Brush Preset Picker in the Options bar to get the Brush palette shown in Figure 28.4. If you get a different palette, click the menu button at the upper-right corner of the Brush palette and choose Reset Brushes from the pop-up menu. Select the Soft Round 200 Pixels brush.

■ Click in the Opacity box in the Options bar to get a slider; set Opacity to 10% and flow to 100%.
