    Select and mask not resulting in transparent background

    tlee4me

      Hi there,

      I have been successfully selecting and masking for years now, however, today I'm stumped on something that I know is easy. I'm sure this has a very simple solution but, the answer is eluding me... I have a black box on a white background that I need removed off of the white background. I make a selection yet when I mask it the transparent checkerboard is not being revealed, it stays white. When I try to inverse it the box disappears but, instead of the transparent checkerboard I'm left with a pure white layer. What am I doing wrong?
