Secrets of the Mask Panel

I haven’t posted a tutorial in a while so I thought I’d get something up from my upcoming DVD – Here is a 24 minute video examining masking techniques associated with the new Mask Panel in Photoshop CS5 – I pay special attention to the Refine Edge dialog and how best to use it for very wispy hair edges. Topics covered include:

• Color Range selection

• Layers & Layer Masks

• Dodge & Burn refining of masks

• Mask Panel & Refine Edge

• Clipping Mask

• Color Dodge
