Brushing on layer mask I'm getting a black spot, or white spot. Its not revealing the layer underneath it. What am I doing wrong? I was able to reveal another image on the same layer, but suddenly it "locked-up" and won't let me reveal any other objects.

If you look at the options bar for the Brush tool, what is the mode set to? Is it "Normal" or something different?

Howdy Ulu,

Also, it's super easy to accidentally target the actual layer instead of the layer mask.  Make sure that the layer mask has the "halo" to show it's selected instead of the layer itself.

Hope that helps,
