Hi Adobe,

I'm a professional retoucher, all day long and every day on you tool, so thanks.
I had to small ideas though I thought I should mention, maybe others could use them too...
1) Mask of opposite: should be easy to program, I think, and quite useful. In many cases, a picture is made of an object and a background. One mask operate on the object (foreground) and when I'm done painting this mask, I inverse it to use it on the background. However, in many cases, the mask needs to be corrected in some point, or be a bit blurry, and the combination of the two becomes annoying (or the painting of one and inverting every time). the idea would be to masks based on one mask 5or linked to one mask): one would apply to the white zones (as it is now) and its"mirror mask" used in some different layer, would apply to the dark zones. This way, every correction to the mask would change the to masks accordingly.
2) Several (pixel) masks on one layer. I do it now by placing the layer in a masked group, but it would be simpler if I could just place several masks on a layer (for example the selection of an object in one mask, and a part of the object that needs to be masked for some reason (one mask sharp edged, the second one blurry...)

I'm available for more details if needed, thru this thread.
Thanks again,
