Quick Mask

The Quick Mask feature is for those of you who aren't necessarily looking to save a selection for later use, but want the ease of use that working with a selection layer can bring you.

To create a Quick Mask, follow these steps:

1. From the main menu, choose Selection1: Use Quick Mask. Or you can press Ctrl+M on your keyboard (3S+M on the Mac).

A new Quick Mask layer appears on the Layers palette. From here, it's just like working on a selection layer.

2. Use the Selection or Drawing tools to block off the area you want to make a selection from.

3. When the selection area(s) has been created, choose Selection1: Use Quick Mask.

The Quick Mask disappears, and you have your image layer selection all ready to go! See Figure 9-25.
