terrible video


Rip hawkeye

Zoe Centenaje

this is probably not important but why the hell is Hawkeye not included ?

Chuck Purnell

I noticed your layer mask was white but what if I wanted the layer mask to be black how do I make that change?


You should never speed up a video when showing something new as beginners. You didn’t mention where the icon was to get there. Your layer panel is too small. You didn’t mention the hot key to select each layer together and put them together or even mention why you did that process. Video would’ve been perfect with some fine details and slowing it down.

Mohammad Iqbal

please provide stock images? everything is fine

Qi Perez

Hawkeye left the group

Dhruv Nagrani

I actually love this easy tutorial with known characters..


Wow so cool! :) Hello! When I paint different layers the previous layer painted stays under the new color (doesn't overlaps the new one). May be you could help me? And one more, when I paint a big piece and then want to continue, the next stroke goes above that 1st color and that spot becomes darker :/ How can I make it all one color? Thank you in advance!

SFG Jointzz

m. deicke

I mean, for this application you could also use the eraser tool to silhouette an object. How would you use for instance a polka dot pattern to mask out chunks of a photo?


Sorry if this comes out rude but the final image looks like boxart from a bootleg rip of the movie ?


what if i want to clear the background easily in it, and not have the black its too hard


Thanks! This'll help me improve my graphic design MASSIVELY.

Tea Boy

Dale Murphy

My quick mask is not working when I add the mask to the image then select the brush it doesn't blend the images together

Darija Radchenko

The tutorial is incomplete and shows just a small part of layer mask usage

salah ouali

Hhhh I have been watching videos of the same topic, but going over 20 minutes and finally got nothing. On the contrary your 4 minutes tutorial taught me everything


A great tutorial that showed a real application of the use of layer mask

Joy Dharan

Mr Baffoono

Hi Guru99 thaks for the explaination. However, I wanted to learn how to blend two images and able to see one underneath of the other



Basic's Restaurants

tjis is amazing. good video for making posters


very bad

Daniel Svart

Quick and very useful !! thanks

Prince Mjprasanth

Wow! You made me understand very easily the uses of layer mask. Thanks bro.

MarkMe Productions

thanks.. really helped me!


well... the only important things in this vid are:
1. black hides pixels, white reveals (as long as u dont invert the mask)
2. u didnt explain anything about refining edge...the heroes look very boxy... its like they are not from there.. but still for 4 minutes is good..
remember this : black hides pixels (on white mask) and white reveals the pixels of the image.. nothing more from this video..:/


how did u even put 2 pics into the same place it won't let me drag pics into photoshop


not for beginners dipshit.

Avengers movie poster makers be like :?


my brush does not work in layer mask, can anyone tell my why or how i can make it work?

Håvard Madland

Where did u get that brush?

Maximilian Höhl

You should explain what the single functionalities (blendingmodes and so on) are actually doing with the images/pixles. Otherwise we are just learning how to do an avangers-poster by recipe

Donna Conley

Speaking waaay too fast for a beginner to keep up!

La Kicia Hughes

Lovely! Short, sweet, and to the point. Very understandable! Thank you!

Josef Slezak

Amazing quick and simple tutorial!

Ashley M

How would I do it for a single item onto another image? The same way as this video?

Lady Llamaler

So, when I'm masking I have to have black as my color

Indie Music Minute

at 3:02 you should NEVER stretch an image in one direction, always resize it while maintaining the same ratio.

Hi what adobe is these? 2019 or 2018?

amazing, thank you for this!


I think it would be a great idea to provide us with all the images you have used in this video so that we can practice at the same time we watch this otherwise it was a great video. Thanks


19 people are haters


nice..and thank u


You don't explain your steps. If you want to do a How to Use video, explain how you are doing things step by step. This is more "How to make a movie poster" than how to use Layer Masks.

Constable Dodo

This is so hard can I pay you to do it for me for school?
please it's my last year of collage and I really dont want to go another year or even a more semecter

Unmistakably Chinese

Everything you did seems to be so easy! Need to keep working on this thing.

How to wear a surgical mask ? | With subtitles in English | Tamil

Skip to 3:25 for the demo

Skip to 3:25 for the demo on how to redesign the mask to minimize gaps on the sides.

In this video, I will be explaining on how to wear a surgical mask in an effective way. Though wearing a surgical mask is not fool proof way to prevent infection, there are certain ways by which we can minimize the risk if worn properly. This video is based on instruction provided by my Doctor friend. However, the best known prevention method will be to stay home and practice social distancing when we are outside.

Disclaimer: The method explained in this video is purely for informational purpose and does not guarantee prevention from any sort of infection.






Anything Pesalam

Do you know wearing surgical masks don't prevent us from getting infected? They don't provide complete seal to our nose and mouth unlike N95 masks. However, we can do this minor modification on a surgical mask to get better seal. Watch the video fully to know how. The actual demo begins at 4 minutes. So, skip to 4:00 minutes if you want to get straight to the point ;)

much appreciated! thanks!
