When you make edits to your image, you want to use adjustment layers to make sure your changes won’t affect the actual pixels. This is especially useful with masks, which you use to apply edits or effects to just certain parts of the image. Switching between white and black background and foreground colors allows the mask to show or hide the image underneath; when using masks, remember, black conceals, white reveals.
