Photoshop Vs Flash – Masking

Mask (n): A covering to disguise or conceal something

I am very new to Photoshop and Flash. I was creating a couple of layers in Photoshop and tried to mask one layer with another. This resulted in the top layer hiding the image in the bottom layer. When I tried to do the same thing with Flash, I got completely confused. Why? Because, in Flash, if we apply a Mask, the Mask actually reveals the contents underneath it and hides the remaining content.

Both these products use the same word to represent different stuff. Confusing isn’t it. 😦
