快速遮色片 Quick Mask Mode

Last Updated: 26 September 2014

Quick mask mode (快速遮色片模式 ) is useful when refining the edge of complex selections, or adding/substracting areas to/from the selections.

First you will need to select an area by any selection tool. Press the Q shortcut key, or Select -> Edit in Quick Mask Mode, or click the Quick Mask Mode icon on the left panel will enable the quick mask mode. The default color of the masked area is red. This can be changed if necessary.

Press the X shortcut key switches between the foreground (white) and background (black). Use the brush tool to paint foreground color to any area where you want to be included in the selection. Painting black background color to an area will exclude it from the selection. 

Once done, the selected area can be saved to a separate layer, see 選取的區域複製到新圖層
