  • blending into mask

    I'm trying to add a new sky to a picture and I'm using the "blend if" sliders in the layer style options. But I would like to make some changes to this blending. Is it possible to create a mask from this blending, that could then be manually corrected?
    Thank you!

    Re: blending into mask

    Hi Remi,

    After setting the blend-if sliders the way you want, turn off all layers except that one, then select the channel palette tab, then ctrl-click the thumbnail of the channel whose opacity you want to capture. Now you have the opacity in a selection which can now be put into an alpha channel (click the "create-new-channel" button) or put into a layer mask and then edited with curves or brushes et. al.

      How Do I Add My Selection to A Layer Mask?
      by bobzilla
      I know how to paint in the Layer Mask to make a mask, but say I use the Lasso or Magic Wand or Color Range to make a selection. How can I transfer that to my Layer Mask?

      I'm in PS 7.

      I am still working on the picture from my previous post. I now have 2 layers in my layers box, a background and a layer mask above it. The mask was created with a solid color fill after a selection. I chose red for the fill color because it would stand out against the blue sky. The mask icon to...
