Hi all,

I have this strange thing going on. Masks are horrible around the edge, in general. I have also found if I use the refine mask function, the edges are exceptionally awful. I can see the brush marks and a weird outline. I made sure that I was using a "basic" brush (no textures), so I don't know what is going on. 

I have attached three views of the image I was working on, and also an AP file that I create as a test to confirm what I was happening.

I apologize for the lack of proper terminology here, I don't use masking much and so my description to the error may be a bit vague.

Tried your file, I don't have any problem here, masking is perfect. I'm on Windows 10.

Hi befehr,
Are you setting the Output in the Refine dialog to New layer with mask? If so this is already logged. Try duplicating the original layer, set the Output to Mask in the Refine Selection dialog and then apply the mask to the duplicated pixel layer to get the same result b ut with clean edges (assuming g you want the pixel layer duplicated).

Awesome, thanks MEB.

yeah, I was selecting the output as New layer with mask. But, your process worked perfectly. A little workaround. :-)
