I found this to be an excellent tutorial on using a layer mask to fine tune a quick selection.  
As time goes by, it gets more 
difficult to find tutorials which bring new information.  This one did for me.
The latter part of this video shows how to use a layer mask to improve your selection.
The technique works in Photoshop Elements as well as with Photoshop.

I like the “click, shift, click”… I’d not tried that before… I’ll have to try it on my next “creation”.  Just waiting for week 11’s entry :-)

Michael…

LOL… click, shift, click… I do it all the time.
I though I’d invented it.
It works with pretty much with all the brushes.

Next week… Yeah, I know.  Me too.

Mandrake, you would probably like the Photoshop/LightRoom addon from Topaz Labs, remask. It’s completely amazing, you can have a model on a windy day with her hair blowing all around spend about 5-10 minutes in Remask and every every individual hair included in the mask.

Mike… Thank you for the suggestion.  I use Lightroom5 and Photoshop Elements 10 (not Photoshop), however, I understand that the Topaz plugins are compatible with Elements.  I’ll do some web research.  Thanks again.
