    Larry,

    Elements 2 has a selection brush that can be set to mask mode (this allows you to paint rubylith mask). Selections can also be saved.

    The add ons that Jodi mentions give a more traditonal Photoshop QuickMask, but you may not find them necessary, if you try the selection brush.

    Al,

    I use Hidden Power. Had some trouble with the shipley stuff myself. Find it here:

    This stuff shows in the How-To palette and has an automated installer.

    Al,

    I can't help with 3rd party products. Don't use em myself.

    Bob,

    Selection brush is the third down on the left side of the toolbar. It lets you paint a marching ants selection by default, and if you switch to mask mode in the options bar, it lets you paint a rubylith mask.

    Al,

    If you have a Mac, the Shipley Extra Tools <http://member.melbpc.org.au/~pshipley/Download.htm> should be located here <http://home.earthlink.net/~imacgirl/extratoolslocation.jpg>. I'm not sure if the location is the same for Windows.

    Did you look in Effects? This is where the Extra Tools will be.

    Many of us had a really tough time getting these installed. Once you do, you'll wonder how you ever lived without the Curves. This is one thing that Elements 2 is missing, and in my opinion is a must for any photo editing.
