in mask :
For black have : c 0% Y 0% m 0% k 97%

white c 0% y 0% m 0% k 1%

can't find RGB

hang on : went into 'colour' F6 - and my black was only 97% black - will have a look at it once I have filled with 'proper' black

Yep, that should do it. K is showing 97% and should be 100% for pure black.

I may be missing something but I can't see the "shadows"!

Could you post a crop of the image with only the "sky" layer visible, then one with the "shadows" showing?

I try to press D to get the colors at default black/white before I paint on a mask. Yes, it happened to me.;):)

I guess at 97% the shadows were so barely visible that my old eyes just weren't making them out! Dang, but it wouldn't be the first time:)!

Hey that's a good tip. I normally click on the colors and change it/them, but pressing D is so much easier. Gotta remember to do this from now on.

After pressing "D", to switch between Black and White foreground/background colors, you can press "X".

Thanks. Like Tony said, pressing X will toggle between the foreground/background colors no matter what they are.
