Once you’ve added a mask, you can now add to or subtract from the masked area.

Click on the mask controls (three-dot icon) next to the Mask Type drop-down menu to find the following controls:

  • Fill. This option covers your entire image with a mask. After using Fill, you can select Paint Mask and use the Erase mode to subtract from the mask.
  • Invert. This option inverts any mask you’ve created so that its opacity and transparency values are reversed.
  • Clear. This option removes your mask entirely. After clicking Clear, you can use the Paint Mask, Gradient Mask, or Radial Mask tools to add details back to the image.
  • Copy. This option copies the current mask to the clipboard. To use this copied mask, create a new mask using any tool and paste it into the new tool mask.
  • Paste. This option pastes the current mask stored on the clipboard for use on another tool mask.
  • Show Mask/Hide Mask. This option controls the visibility of the mask. Clicking Show Mask displays the mask as a red overlay. For greater precision, you may continue drawing your mask while this overlay is shown. Hide Mask removes the red overlay.
