Since using quick masks I seldom use the clone tool. But for something this simple I did use the clone tool and removed it quicker then it took me to type this.

Clone tool can be a bit repetitive, make sure to use from different sections. Quick masking has more promise here:) So much more easier to blend:)

Basically the quick mask allows you to select a section of the image (even a very small section) and change it using almost any filter or function in PS. You see that little grey square with the white circle under your color palette? Put your cursor over it and it says "Edit in Quick Mask Mode (Q)", use this to make your selection. Once you start using masks you will realize just how much you can do with them from frames to manipulated bokeh to vignette to detailed color adjustments to almost fixing anything on a picture. I'm guilty of being so used to masking since PS7 that I tend to forget about cloning now. However cloning in CS3 is so much more improved than the older versions, I just tend to automatically mask instead:)

Hey Kat,

Just a quick one on quick mask. How do you use it?! I mean after entering quick mask, what would you do in order to fix skin, remove sign or whatever?!

Thank you in advance.

A great tutorial CD that was probably the best $25 I ever spent.

Without an actual tutorial to show you....errrr I'll do my best:)

There are different steps depending on what you are wanting to do.
For the removal of the sign?
Select a section of the photo that matches the area of the section AROUND what you are trying to cover up using quick mask, then do a simple copy and paste after going back into Standard Mode and inversing your selection (white square with grey circle under color palette). You must remember to inverse after going back into standard mode because the mask actually was designed to "mask" or protect the area you have chosen. Then you can feather the pasted section or manually blend it in to the surrounding area. Same with correcting blemishes however the healing brush is far faster and efficient. If it's something that really small, then cloning and healing brush are wonderful! However if you want to "improve" on larger or more detailed sections than masking creates so much more for you to work with and uses less file space than duplicating layers!
Hahaha that is once you figure out how it works:) When I first started using masks, I was like a deer in headlights and I still am sometimes when learning new masking techniques. I just got tired of not knowing what I was doing feeling like I was geting stuck! So I went out and bought books to help me get started. The steps feel really slow at first but once you start using masks more and more, with any other function in PS you will see that it gets so much faster and you have so much more control.

Matt Klosowski has a really good book that's excellent for beginners in layers and masking, it's called Layers: The complete guide to Photoshop's Most Powerful Feature. I going to check out more of that link Blue Deuce just posted, at first glance it looks pretty awesome:)

You can permanently change that by double-clicking on the QM icon and choosing "Selected Areas" instead of "Masked Areas".

It'll save you that annoying Invert step every time.
