Luminosity Mask selection?!?

Hi All.. firstly I should say hi to everyone, I've been lurking off and on for a few weeks now and I've picked up lots of great stuff that helps my workflow.. thanks to all the posters here!!

I have a really, really, quick and simple question.. I feel like a dope having to ask it honestly..

I'm trying to make a luminosity mask on a PS CS2 file on a Mac but the old "Cmnd+option+shift+tilde" doesn't bring a selection anymore! - has something changed or do I need more sleep?

Any ideas?

Check the language bar and see if its set correctly. This happened to me where the language was set to US English when I'm using a UK English keyboard. Hope this helps.

In the Channels palette you can CMD-click on the composite RGB icon.

iClick, I think you have one key too many. I don't believe the shift key is to be used. On a PC the command is Ctrl+Alt+~ and so I assume on a MAC it would be CMD+Opt+~
