TIP: View layer mask as colored overlay

To see the effects of painting on a layer mask as if you were in Quick Mask (with the colored overlay), Option-click (PC: Alt-click) on the layer mask thumbnail, then press ~ (tilde) to view the mask as a colored overlay. Continue to paint with shades of gray, using the colored overlay as a guide. Option-click on the mask again to return to the "regular" view.
