I was sent here to request that QUICK MASK be added as tool in Elements. I use it a lot in PS5. I can no longer update my OS without losing PS, but can't migrate to Elements without the Quick Mask feature.
There is a hidden Quick Mask mode in Photoshop Elements. Take a look at this video tutorial to see how it operates.
But, I have to ask you why you need a Quick Mask? There are many other tools that will do the same thing.
Thank you for your reply! That looks very interesting, but does not function the same way Quick Mask does in PS 5. I use it all the time to fine tune selections. I have Elements, but don't use it often. I have found it does not work as efficiently as PS does for me in most areas. Could you steer me the other tools you mention? Some day I will have to use Elements when I update my OS. I'm currently running Mac 10.14.6 and I will lose PS when I update. PS will not run in the newer OS versions.
I have Elements 2018. In PS, I use quick mask to fine tune a selection. I can add to, or subtract from, a selection by using either the paint brush or the eraser. And I can select any color I want for the mask. I make selections for a lot of different reasons. .... changing color...add on its own layer...repeat it somewhere else...extractions...edit just a specific part of a photo...does that make sense?
Looks interesting. Not as accurate as quick mask, but an alternative when I can no longer use PS5. I will give it a try!
