In this, the final tutorial in the Photoshop Basics series, I’ll demonstrate the workings of the Foreground Colour Setter and the tool which I consider to be the most important, the Masking tool.
I will select my brush and roughly paint on my original layer, change my foreground colors through the color setter and continue painting with a new foreground color. (To switch your foreground colors use the keyboard shortcut “x”)
Once we are done with that, I’ll show you how to use the Masking tool with a few easy steps. (Keyboard shortcut “q”)
Please note: When working with the masking tool, white foreground color will mask in and black foreground color will mask out. (Keyboard shortcut for that will be “x”)
