A week ago Adobe began shipping Photoshop CS4 and already Deke McClelland's highly anticipated Adobe Photoshop CS4 One-on-One is climbing bestselling charts. Even better, dekePod's special Halloween episode sheds light on CS4's scariest feature, the Masks palette. "It's kind of cute, but it's got a big old knife," notes Deke. "Masking is a way of making a super accurate selection."

And "faith is precisely what the Masks palette requires of you," adds Deke. "Everything about it is promising; little about it makes sense. The palette that makes masks also wears one. Will it be a bag of treats? Or a bundle of tricks?"

Watch dekePod now to find out how to transform the Masks palette from, in Deke's own words, "a devil doll to a responsible citizen."
