    Color Range Layer Mask Not Fully Masking to Black/White

      Hi all,

       

      I am encountering some issues when using the color range command to select a layer mask. Here are a few screenshots that explain what I tried to do:

      Selection using the color range tool.

      Marching ants apparently show a perfect selection.

      But after applying the mask, there are clearly areas that were not selected.

      This is what the mask looks like. Areas are shown to be gray.

       

      Please explain why color range is doing this. My foreground/background colors have been set to absolute black and absolute white. I checked the marching ants selection and did not find any missed spots. Thanks for your help.
