Please point me to the answer to this question if it exists. I have not been able to find it.
In Photoshop I am able to edit a mask by using a selection. If I have a layer mask and then (as an example) use Select>Colour Range to make a selection, with that selection active I can click on the layer mask then using white/black brush tool I can paint to refine the mask. The selection acting to 'mask' for where white/black is applied.
Is this possible and how would you achieve it?
This question is born from me trying to understand the Select Sampled Colour as compared to PS Select>Colour range. For example, if I want to select a red rose, the red sampled in PS Colour range select just the red of the flower. It behaves like an edge detection tool (unless I push fuzzieness way up). AP Select Sampled Colours doesn't select colour in the same image the same way. If I make the selection in PS with CR, create a new layer and then paint the selection I get the rose. If I do the same if AP it paints the rose but also the background. It's almost like AP SSC is selecting luminosity too.
I hope I'm explaining that clearly.
So I need a way to edit the mask using a selection.
