Having trouble cutting the path out from the above image. I managed to cut the outside with a layer mask, but when i do that now for this it crops just that area. Do I need to invert it somehow?
Since you already have mask and a path created, simply turn it into a selection via the Paths Panel (Window > Paths).
- Select your path and navigate to the Paths Panel:
- Right-click the shape path and select 'Make Selection...' in the drop-down menu:
- Navigate back to the 'Layers Panel' and select the layer mask you wish to add to. Fill with black to mask out the image.
