Photoshop CS5 Masking Basics & Masking Magic

Masking has always been a great way in Photoshop to select parts of an image and combine your selections to make a photo compositions. With basic images masking has always been pretty easy but for more complex images (little fly away hairs used to be the hardest thing to mask). But with Photoshop CS5 there are some new tools in the mask section that are pretty amazing. These new tools can save you a ton of time if you do a lot of detailed retouching or multi-photo compositions. Check out this video below to get a good walk through of the new features in the mask tool.

Photoshop CS5 is looking like a pretty decent upgrade, depending on the type of photography you do it might be a worthwhile investment. Have you upgraded yet? Love it/hate it? Let us know in the comments.
