    That was really awesome episode. I am waiting for you guys when you are coming in Orlando for photoshop world.
    The answer to the question is pressing Ctrl key when you click on mask.
    I am sorry if my answer is wrong because I am not really familiar with masking. I saw one of your video when you guys are using mask , when I saw that I was really happy learning new trick from you.
    Thanks guys I really <3 you.

    I don’t have the font from Scott’s section in my CS5…

    I was there and you guys rock with a live audience. Great tips. Come back to Las Vegas soon, we’ll treat you right.

    You will use the “Alt” or Option key to add the layer mask with the Background color.

    I thought Scott’s tip on Open Type Fonts aka “PRO” was an awesome one. Unfortunately playing with it I could only get “Swash” with the Bickham Script Pro (same as in the video) but with all other “pro” types swash was grey out. Stylistic Alernates was available for half of the “pro” font types. Anyone else experience this or possibly did I do something wrong. Would appreciate all comments. Thanks

    I also tried the Swash feature, and none of the stock ‘pro’ fonts from photoshop seemed to have Swash as an option.
