I'm not sure where to check up what's wrong with my brush setting or mask setting. I used a mask and regular brush with 100% opacity, 100% hardness, but when I brush on the mask tried to remove the object, the object just keeps showing a shadow, like a light ghost. I've attached screenshots of my brush and the mask image here, could anyone help me with this photoshop setting? Greatly appreciated! enter image description hereenter image description here enter image description here

    It would appear that either your brush is not set to 100% opacity, or the mask is set to less than 100% density – Scott Oct 26 '20 at 1:44
  • ...or you're painting with not 100% black color: make sure you're using an absolute black – Sergey Kritskiy Oct 26 '20 at 7:32
  • ... or the unwanted pixels are on the layer below? – Wolff Oct 26 '20 at 11:04
  • ... or you could be applying the mask to the wrong layer. Perhaps instead add the layer mask to the group if you want to mask all the layers contained within it. – Billy Kerr Oct 26 '20 at 11:53
  • Also possible that you have a selection active (a channel selection would give you this effect). Try CTRL+H to see if it's hidden, or CTRL+D to just deselect. – Joseph Massaro Oct 26 '20 at 16:57
