Hi Rachel,

It's more about what you've done before painting White in the layer's mask (you did select the mask to paint in, didn't you?). If you created e.g. a "dodge adjustment layer", then only the area where the mask was painted White will show the effect in full. One can also paint in the mask with shades of gray for partial application of the intended effect.

Cheers,
Bart

P.S. I just saw you're looking for the steps following the successful creation of a masked adjustment layer. As Mike said, it's up to you, flatten or just save with the possibility to adjust further. Maybe you're looking for something else?
