Hi Sam,
depending on the size of your mask ich can erase your image.
check the following:

1. is the mask a grayscale-gif?
2. invert the mask. maybe you erase the wrong parts of the image.
3. if you are not sure about the constants, try the values, something 
like yourmask*.gif or uploads/tf/yourmask.gif
4. set the mask on object, e.g.
30 = IMAGE
40 = IMAGE
40.mask =

you find good documentation here:

three in the morning is no good time to get rid of your hair..
