google "luminosity masks" for tutorials.

However, the short answer is, once you are able to create mask 1 and 3, 2 and 4 can be had by darkening each (1 and 3) by raising the black slider with levels. This contracts the dark end of each mask.

So, 2 is a contracted version of 1, and 3 is a contracted version of 2.

It's late here so I'm probably not being as clear as possible, but maybe it's enough to get you started.

Re: Robert Randall

If I remember there is a good tutorial over on luminous landscape on this...there is even some actions you can buy (and they are really cheap) that will make these masks and more.

If you do get them the difference mask...is the narrow mid tones mask in that set.

Re: Robert Randall

You are welcome
Anyway I found the answer in another forum:
1. If you want a difference mask from to composite images, copy and paste one image on top of the other. Set the blend mode of the top image to Difference. Make a duplicate of the image and desaturate it or convert it to grayscale. This grayscale image represents the differences between the two images and can be used as a mask.
2. To make a difference mask of two channels go to the channels palette and select one channel. The go Image>Apply Image. From the pull down menu select you current image or any other open image. Choose the layer you want and change the Blend Mode to Difference. The new channel will be immediately useable as a s difference mask.
