Adding Layer Masks in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

If you make a selection in your image and then add a layer mask by clicking the add layer mask icon at the bottom of the Layers panel, the layer mask will be created based on the selection. If you need Photoshop to ignore the selection when making the mask, Option + (Mac) | Alt  + (Win) -click the add layer mask icon at the bottom of the Layers panel or, choose Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All.
