Question Channel Help

Does anyone know a quick way to convert a (RGB) Color Channel to a Layer image? (click and drag etc.) This will give you a grayscale copy of the image on a Layer

I know you can duplicate an image, split the channels of the duplicate image and then shift/move one of the channels into the original image. Is there a simpler way?

Any help would be appreciated.

Ron..

Ron,

If I'm understanding you correctly, I just do Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C on a channel, click Composite Channel to get out of the channel mode and Ctrl V to paste the channel as a separate layer in my image.

Thumbs down

Thanks CJ;

Your suggestion worked like a dream.
I knew there had to be an easy way to do this. I looked everywhere for the answer but I never tried the most obvious solution, "copy & paste".

Ron

The "obvious solution" is only obvious AFTER we solve it, I think. It's like the truism "you always find something in the last place you look" (because we STOP looking AFTER we found it!)

Glad it helped!

Though late...here's another way.
After make a new layer, try Image>Apply Image

source 1 : a channel you want to copy and paste
Blending mode : Darken (in this case Multiply bring same result)

Yes, venivedi;

That technique works as well. It took me awhile to realize the new layer had to be a blank layer but I finally got it.

Thanks for the suggestion,

Ron
