  1. I am lost at Step 5:

    "Now, Add a layer mask to sea layer by clicking the layer mask icon on layer panel.Grab the brush tool by pressing (B) on keyboard then hide the selected the part of sea layer using soft round black brush."

    What it the point of grabbing the brush tool, shouldn't i grab the select tool?

    1. You need to use the brush tool to erase some of the layer mask, not the selection tool. He selected it to show you what part you need to erase.

  2. Find your tutorials very helpful as photography is serving me as a therapy due to my accident. Keep your good work,Thanks for your support.
