Clip­ping Masks

ImagineFX - - Photoshop Quick Fixes -

When paint­ing an ob­ject on a trans­par­ent layer, try cre­at­ing a new one above it, right-click­ing the layer and se­lect­ing Cre­ate Clip­ping Mask. Now when you paint, brush strokes will only show up where there are pix­els in the layer be­low. So if part of the lower layer is clear, your brushes won’t work there on the up­per one. This is help­ful when you want to try out some new colours in an area you’ve al­ready painted, be­cause turn­ing off the layer vis­i­bil­ity en­ables you to flip back and forth be­tween the new and orig­i­nal im­age.
