I enjoy it, Tim. I hope someone gets something useful from it.

Thanks to you for coding it!

Question

Hello.

I have been experimenting with some of the GREAT photoshop tutorials. I did one black and white photo where I put color into just a shirt. My question is, what type of file do you have to start with? The reason I ask is because on the next picture I was going to do the same thing to, the option to create a layer mask is muted out so I can't select it. I don't even think it was lit up when I did the first one but somehow, I was able to do it.

Thanks for any advice....

Yeah, if you don't have a layed image, you have to create a new layer... it's best to use any loseless image, like a psd file in photoshop, for instance.

I think your color mode is set to an option that doesnt allow layers, just a background layer. Try converting the color space to RGB.

Im not 100% sure this is the problem but it could be.

I just checked. If the color mode is set to indexed, the new layer button is disabled. Its ok in greyscale and rgb.

To use the method I described, you need to be in CMYK mode.

Your problem might not be with the file type. Photoshop will not allow you to add a mask to the "background" layer. Check your Layers palette. If it only has one layer, then you will need to grab that layer by clicking and holding with your mask and then dragging it down to the "Create a New Layer" icon (the one that looks like a stack of paper with the lower left corner folded up on the top sheet). This will make a 2nd layer that should be titled "background copy." You should be able to add a mask to this layer.

Or you can add adjustment layers and add masks to them, or you can rename the backgound layer. If you name it "Layer 0" or something then you can manipulate it as you would any other layer.

Thanks for all the advice. I was able to figure it out after messing around with it. I had my main photo as the background and I kept forgetting to put it in CMYK mode. I was able to go to layers and do a new adjustment layer and choose curves. I am now ready for another tutorial...hehehe!!!

Now if only I could figure out why when I click on the photo's for fun posts, the pictures dont show up but just a box with title, image path, etc does.
