Undo Layer Mask [For Green Screen Affect]
Hi Guys,

I'm using Gimp to acheive a green screen affect (have a picture of a person with a background, changing background). I've used the technique of applying a layer mask and masking over the background [if anyone can tell me a better method, please do, the picture has several different background colours unfortunatly]. The problem is that I have accidently gone over the person in some places and can't undo [i.e. ctrl+z] as have done a lot more masking after that.

Any suggestions on what I could do would be appreciated.

Thanks,

EdenC

Nevermind: Using the eraser tool works. However, I am still up for suggestions on an easier way of doing this [the green screen affect].

Thanks,

Super sorry for the triple-post but I've just found out that the eraser doesn't really work all the time - help please!

EDIT: Fixed!
