Hi, I'm using Photoshop cc 2021. I am working on a black and white and trying to use the brush in overlay mode at 100%.  Painting in white to eliminate the black, without affecting the white,  in order to create a mask. It is not dong anything!  Can you help?  I'm on a MAC. Thanks.

Painting with white in overlay mode will turn grays to white, but will have no impact on 100% black.

 

Usually you would use this technique to refine the edge of a mask, where the transition from black to white is a little ragged. See here for an example:

Yes, that's what I'm doing. My colors may just be too pure black and pure
white. Thanks for the tutorial. I'll keep trying!
