I just made my first mask.
I have an image layer. It is a solid color with some text on it.
I drew a rounded rectangle on top of it, selected them both, and went:
Modify --> Mask --> Group as Mask
The result made the desired mask, but the result now has some degree of transparency.
Does anyone have any idea what I did wrong???
When you choose Group as mask, make sure your mask object has a solid fill of white. This will hide everything outside the mask object, but show the inside at full opacity.
On an existing masked object, you can select the mask in the Layers panel, then adjust the fill color from the Properties panel.
that did it. thanks!
You're very welcome! :-)
