  • Shortcut to discard Layer Mask?

    Does anyone know a shortcut for discarding/removing/deleting a Layer Mask in PS7? I haven't found it anywhere.

    I don't think there is one. But you could always make an action to make your own hotkeys. I have a pretty extensive .pdf list of PS7 hotkeys. If anyone wants it, send me an e-mail.

      Hotkey! Of course Ed, why didn't I think of that?

          Shift+click on the layer mask to deactivate it temporarly.

          The right-click on the layer mask thumbnail, then choosing the correct option works fast for me, there is no confirmation...

            Is it possible to create a layer mask from a grayscale image in PSE 2.0? I'm referring here to an actual layer mask which has a thumnail within the layer it affects.

            Is there a way to lower the opacity of the layer mask without affecting the layer it's attached too?

            I use layer masks a lot when I (don't) want some of the effect/filter to affect parts of the paintings, so I was wondering if it was possible to lower the opacity...

            I should know how to do this and I probably do, but my head is spinning! I'm more than half done with the glamour challenge, but I can't figure out how to make a seperate file of my mask. Somebody needs to walk me through it!

            I'm working on a brochure
            I have inserted an image complete with mask, and layer effects.
            My purpose for this is so as the next year begins, I can update the images with my latest Senior images by simply inserting the new photo.
