I recently came across a Photoshop shortcut, I can’t remember where I learned of this little gem, but I’m grateful I found it.
Basically, if you make a selection and then click the Add Layer Mask icon at the bottom of the layers panel everything will be masked except your selection. If you hold the alt key on Windows or the option key on the Mac the opposite will be true, your selection will be masked and the rest of the image will not.
I get excited about the smallest things.
Until next time!
