masking trees and sky



  • David Kick

    Not sure of the video you are looking for but one tip that might help. If you are masking in or out with the perfect brush the "Ctrl" key in windows will lock the sampled color. So in your case go into the sky press the ctrl key and click and starting paining out. as you go over the leaves the white sky between the leaves will be removed . Not sure what key is used on a Mac probably the "Command" key.

    Good tip David.

    Mary, if you still need the video you'll need to poke around on YouTube and it'll be there somewhere. Here is an initial search that you can try. There are lots of videos on masking.

    Glad that worked for you.

    I do have to say I am impressed at how well that does work.
