I'm trying to learn the tone mask tutorial found on this site: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/masking.shtml
towards the end of the tutorial, it says:
"The easiest way to apply a tone mask is to select the Channels palette and then ctrl-click (on a Mac, use cmd-click) on the channel with the mask. This will load the mask as a selection. You can then return to the Layers palette and select Layer ~ Add Layer Mask ~ Reveal Selection. If you instead add a new layer, the selection will become a layer mask."
I did ctrl-click on the channel with the mask, and the highlights of the mask was selected and blinking, but I got stuck at the next step - I clicked on the Layers tab, and select Layer, but "Add Layer Mask" option from the menu was grayed out.
Am I missing a step here? or did the tutorial skip a step?
anyone could help me out here? this is a technique I really want to learn, and I would appreciate it greatly if someone could point me to the right direction.
thanks for reading!
