Note: This video was originally published in my old blog, Photo Artist Textures.
This video shows how to use adjustment layers and clipping masks to modify your textures selectively and non-destructively in your Photoshop file.
A review of the Photoshop commands
To create a clipping mask, select the layer and then do one of the following:
- From the Layer Panel menu, choose Create Clipping Mask.
- Hold down Option (Mac) or Alt (PC) and click between the clipping mask layers.
- With the clipping Mask Layer selected, hold down Command + Option + G (Mac) or Control + Alt + G (PC)
To release the clipping mask, select the layer and use any of the above commands again.
An additional note: you can use the layer mask in the adjustment layer to selectively reveal some of the original texture.
