In this podcast you will see that a layer mask allows you to add and remove stuff as many times as you want because what matters is that anything disappear for real..

Layer mask activates doing right click on the selected layer and selecting “Layer Mask” from the pop-up menu, to know more about the options just watch the tutorial!Working with Layer Mask isn’t easy the first time, and I won’t deny that it requires a lot of practice, however, when you start working with it you will never stop doing it, since it’s a super easy way to add or remove elements without loosing your original work because you’re only painting the Mask and letting visible a portion of it without modifying it really.

Remember that there is a new podcast every week, and don’t forget to watch the older podcast… and why not? share some love if you like them :)
