Optics-2022 : Masks : Paint Mask
Paint Mask
Organic masks are created using a paint brush and the filter appears only in the area of the paint stroke.
Go to the Paint Mask Tutorial to see how it works.
Paint Mask consists of a combination of on-screen brushes and toolbar controls.
Note: If you have a large area that needs to be masked out, it may be more efficient to first use the Path Mask since Paint’s brush size does not exceed 500 pixels.
