  • TIP: luminosity mask for individual RGB channels

    To load a luminosity mask for individual RGB channels Press CTRL>ALT and 1 2 or 3 for either the R G or B channel. no need to go into the channel pallete either. Pressing Ctrl and 1 2 or 3 makes the R G or B channel active as greyscale in your open window, at least I think thats what happens. I NOTICED THIS WHEN THE CAT WALKED ON MY KEYBOARD, REALLY!!! tom

        Copying part of a channel
        by derekfountain
        As a newbie, I was having a go at challenge #44 with Photoshop 7. I got bogged down in an issue which really shouldn't be that difficult.

        The writing at the bottom of the photo needs to be removed, and, conveniently, doesn't show in the blue channel. So, just take that part of the image...

        by Maroon
        I use Photoshop CS3, and though I spend a fair amount of time working with channels, I've always had trouble switching them around.
