Tutorial: Stretching your Digi-Stash using Layer Masks

February 15, 2015

Last week we defined and demonstrated how to create and use a Photoshop Layer Mask. (Using Layer Masks in Photoshop).  Today let’s look at one way in which we can use layer masks to stretch our digi-stash.

As a reminder from last week’s tutorial:

When would you use a mask? You would use a mask on a layer when you want to hide portions of that layer and to reveal the layer below.

With this in mind and our  masking skills at hand, stretching our digi-stash becomes an exercise in creative thinking and experimentation.
