Use Refine Mask instead of Refine Edge

If your aim in making a selection is to turn it into a layer mask for an adjustment layer, skip the Refine Edge controls in favor of the new Refine Mask controls, found in the Mask panel (Window>Masks) in CS4 – just click on Mask Edge to open the dialog. The controls in Refine Mask are the same asRefine Edge, but they affect a mask and not a selection, allow-ing you to see in real time how the edges of an adjustment layer’s mask are affected and what works best for that particular layer.
