super quick tip: stop erasing, use a mask instead

April 13, 2007

When your trying to edit a picture with Photoshop, before doing anything, duplicate the layer to preserve the original copy. Then when your ready to edit the duplicate, use a mask:mask with photoshop
found at the bottom of the layers palette to erase any unwanted pixels. This way while your adding your’re effects and whatnot’s, you’ll have the original as well as a copy that hasn’t been erased.
