  1. WONDERFUL!! I have been looking for something like this all morning. I had nailed the overlay / channels but couldn’t understand what was going wrong – no other tutorial had mentioned about inverting the selection!!!


  2. Great tutorial. But do you think there’s any chance a masking tutorial will be done that deals with complex backgrounds?
