Editing Layer Masks

FIGURE 12.9

Here, the mask will hide the portion of the text that would overlap the sea and land.

To edit the layer instead, click its thumbnail. You can turn off the layer mask by going to the Layer menu and choosing Disable Layer Mask, or Shift+clicking the mask's thumbnail in the Layers palette. This option puts a large X through the mask thumbnail so that you know it's inactive (see Figure 12.10). You can still paint on it while it's inactive, though, so be careful!

FIGURE 12.10

The mask is temporarily disabled.
