Disabling a Layer Mask

After you've created a Layer Mask, you can temporarily disable it by Shift-clicking its thumbnail in the Layers palette (Figures 15.41 to 15.43). With each click, you will toggle the Layer Mask on or off. This is a great help when you want to see what the layer would look like if you didn't have a Layer Mask restricting where it shows up.
