The tutorial at Photoshopessentials has been my task for tonight.

Sure gave me a new idea about Quickmask.

I've got the wrong tutorial book, I'd say.

Hope you learn as much as I did.

Now to find out how to have 2 images on the same layer???

RE: Quickmask
Photoshop is not the same as Gimp. Generally you can get the same end result but usually by a different path/method.

Not sure, but what I think you are seeing in your tutorial are 'adjustment layers' - no direct equivalent in Gimp.

What you can have in Gimp 2.8 are Layer Groups.

example:[Image: QKEBrbl.jpg]

Playing snakes and ladders
An image with just one layer group which has just 2 sub layers.
On one of the layers I toggled a quick mask and painted in the quick mask (white to 'make' black to 'rub out')
Toggle the quick mask off and you get your selection.
Do what you would usually do with a selection. In this case cutting it is about the only thing that would have an effect on the layer below.

Rather than use a quick mask often layer masks are a better bet.

In this one.
Top image, a white layer mask painted with black will uncover the layer under.
Bottom Image, a black layer mask painted with white also uncovers the layer under
then on the second layer a white layer mask painted black permits the base layer to show.

The best way to get to grips with all these, quickmask or layer masks is dive in and experiment.
