After making my selection using the Quick Selection Tool, then Refining Edges, I need to further manually refine my fringes. I choose the Quick Mask Tool and nothing turns red- just white. I have reset all of my tools to their defaults & checked my black & white swatches & opacity levels, and all seem to be right on. I can paint red using the Quick Mask Tool, but it won't turn either the Masked Area or Selected Area red (even though my Tool Options show red) once I enter the mode from creating the mask. I'm just trying to refine my selection using the tool but it's almost like it won't turn on. What am I missing or what do I have set wrong?
Omg, I found it guys, thanks anyway!! Took me forever to figure that out....
I clicked on "Channels" on the Layer List and found that the "Background copy Mask" was not being shown. Turned it on, and RED Masked Area! Woohoo!
Ok, another problem though... now that I can see the Red Mask in my Quick Mask Tool, it won't make a difference if I try switching between "Selected Area" or "Masked Area". Looks like I'm still missing something here. I'd really appreciate your help!
