In Photoshop 9, I created a montage with many layers. Trying to blend the edges of the overlapping layers, I selected the layer, clicked on the mask button, checked that the colors were black and white, and chose the brush. Nothing happens. I have experimented with this feature on test photos and it worked, but it does not work on this montage.

Is it possible you have the brush tool Mode or Opacity set to something other than "Normal" and "100%"?
