I've exhausted everything I can think off to paste a grey scale image into a layer mask.
I've tried these methods outlined here http://painterfactory.com/painter_product_discussion/f/79/t/23502
if I " duplicate layer and go to Layer -> Create layer mask from transparency" - it doesn't work because there isn't transparency in the image I am tying to paste, just grey scale
I've tried pasting into the mask via the channels window - but it just makes a new layer .
I watched Jason's excellent video on the Channels palette - but didn't pick up any clues how to solve it
thanks for any advice....
or is it impossible in Painter?
(hope it's okay to start a new thread on this)
cheers from Oz
thanks so much Jason! that works like a charm
will make my workflow much better!!!!!! really appreciate you sharing your knowledge
