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?
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!
