Figure 6-15 To block out everything except a portion of the DJ's face, I added a layer mask and painted away the rest of his body to produce this final result.

TRY IT To add a layer mask to hide part of a layer, first make sure the Layers palette is visible by choosing Window | Layers, and then click once on the layer to which you want to add a mask. Then, create the layer mask by doing one of the following:

• Click the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the Layers palette, and use the paint tools to hide aspects of the layer.

Add layer mask |

• Select the area you want to be visible (not hidden) and click the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the Layers palette to automatically create a mask that hides all of the areas outside of the current selection.

A layer mask is displayed as a second thumbnail on the layer in the Layers palette. To edit the actual pixels on the layer, click once inside the regular layer thumbnail. To edit the layer mask, click once inside the layer mask thumbnail. You can tell when the actual pixels on the layer are currently active because there is an outline around the regular layer thumbnail. Likewise, when the layer mask is active, its thumbnail is outlined.

Regardless of which way you go about creating the layer mask, you can always go back and edit it as necessary. When using the paint tools to edit a layer mask, understand that painting with white reveals areas of the layer, while painting with black hides them. In fact, notice that when the layer mask thumbnail is outlined—indicating it's currently active and editable—the only colors available to you are black and white.
