Carole I need some advice. I am doing a layout for a lab. I’m using a mask and following lesson 5 from the Mask workshop. I made the new mask layer, hide all, made the selection, feathered and then when I went to flood fill with white, it would not floor fill the mask layer. My materials palette is in Black and White for some reason and I cant seem to get it back to the color one. That is the only difference I can see between mine screen and your screen in the video. Sorry if this is a repeat, I typed it once, hit submit and then it got lost in cyberland. thank you in advance as I know you will have the answer to what I’m doing wrong.
OMG! thank you. Yes, the blend mode was set to “paint behind”. I forgot the basic tenant: check the settings. Voila, it worked like a charm. the whole time it was painting behind and I had a white layer so it was doing what it was told. Thank you again for the quick reply.
