Rasterizing the mask

Before you can apply the Liquify feature to the metal grille, you must rasterize its vector mask and merge the mask and image to create just one image.

1.
In the Layers palette, select the Metal Grille layer in the Images layer set.

2.
Choose Layer > Rasterize > Vector Mask. This converts the circles path, which is a vector graphic and resolution-independent, into a mask that is a raster image and resolution-dependent.

To view a mask by itself, Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the mask thumbnail in the Layers palette.


3.
Choose Layer > Remove Layer Mask > Apply to merge the layer with its mask, creating a single rasterized image on that layer Notice that there is now only one thumbnail in the Layers palette for the Metal Grille layer, whereas before there were two: one for the image and one for the mask.
