Edit Selection = Quick Mask

original photo
One of the things I missed when going from Photoshop to Paintshop Pro was the use of the quick mask. I used it for making selections of everything. To me it was just so much faster than using a marquee tool as all you had to do was paint around what you wanted and could use brushes with harder or softer edges to get just the look you were after. Taking the master class from Cassel was the best thing I have done in a long time. I learned that Paintshop Pro has a "quick mask," it's just that it is called "edit selection." And I have made a postcard using a sheet of paper from "Beaches N Cream" again, by Kristmess, and from Elizabeth McCoy, postcard word art.
