Apologies for being such a n00b at this. I have an image with a leopard in the fg and a mask applied to allow me to blur the bg. Now I want to create a new layer and invert the mask so I can tweak the eyes and for the life of me, I cannot remember how to do that in CS5.

Any help appreciated.

Its the same as in any earlier version.


  1. CTRL + J to duplicate the existing layer
  2. Click on the mask thumbnail of the new layer to select it then press CTRL + I to invert the mask.
