Masking in Adobe Photoshop is this great technique to reveal certain parts of your image or artwork while concealing some parts. The dictionary meaning of masking is to conceal something from view. The same meaning is implied in Photoshop as well. Masking in Photoshop makes use of two colors; black and white. The concept behind Masking is that, if you paint black over an image it is concealed and if you paint white over it it is revealed. While masking the colors are painted with the Brush tool. The shortcut for Brush tool in Photoshop is the letter ‘B’ in the keyboard.
Now you may be wondering why not simply use the Eraser tool instead of Masking. The disadvantage with Eraser tool is that once you erase portions of your image, you cannot get the original asset in future. But, if you use Masking in Photoshop, you have an added advantage that your original file is always preserved. In case you need to get your image file back in future all you need to do is paint white over your image or delete the mask itself.
