Photo V2 (Publisher V2) masking problem


Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody

 

I'm working in Publisher V2 in the Photo Persona on macOS Monterey. I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a mistake on my part.

When I try to edit the mask with the Brush tool it seems like I haven't turned the opacity on the brush all the way up. And then even when I paint over it multiple times I can't get the value to be completely black. I have selected the Mask Layer, opacity is up, flow is up. I thought maybe one of the adjustments layers is affecting the Mask, but hiding the adjustment layers doesn't solve the problem.

Anybody can explain to me what is happening here? never had that problem before.

The parts that I circled is the "maximum blackness" that I can paint the mask.

 

Thanks for the help 

Josh

Do you mean to have wet edges enabled?

There's always leftover. As if I painted with 90% black.

What brush did you choose from the Brushes panel?
