    Masking in elements 5

    I have photoshop elements 5 and for the love of me I cannot figure out how the heck to mask!!!!

    What I am doing is using a grid to do a pencil version of the national geographic picture of sharbat gula. I want to mask the eyes so that everything is turned back and white except for them. How do I do this?

    Elements does not have layer masks.

    However you can simulate the effect this way:

    There is an easier way to do that than a layer mask.

    Duplicate the background layer (ctrl+J)
    turn that layer B&W (many ways to do that)
    then use a soft edge eraser brush and
    erase the eyes out of the B&W
    so the color version shows through!

    Cheers!
