    I have been using Micrografx Picture Publisher 10 for years and have a
    paintable mask tool that I can't find in CS2. Do you know if there is
    such a tool? TIA

    You use the paint brush tool, or any other painting tool. Every painting
    tool can be used to paint a mask, and furthermore you can run filters on
    masks and do anything else you like on a mask.

    You create a mask by entering the QuickMask mode (hit Q on the
    keyboard), or you create a mask on a layer by using the Add Mask command
    from the Layer menu. Then start painting!

    You guys are awesome! Thanks for your help. I gotta tell ya,
    Photoshop is a little intimidating to us armchair retouchers. I know
    its got a great deal with what a person grows up with as I am sure
    that Photoshop seems very natural to use for you but I am struggling!
    I loved Micrografx Picture Publisher but it is time to let dead dogs
    lay and move one... (sniff)
