Lesson Five, Masks

The use of masks certainly expands an image editing program.   Downloading is probably easier than creating although the creation of the one mask that I did was challenging to get the look that I wanted.   This first one I did create my own mask using the instructions but nothing special.   It worked but I am not totally pleased with my efforts at mask making.
