Lesson 7. Masks and Channels > Saving a selection as a mask

Saving a selection as a mask

Quick masks are temporary. They disappear as soon as you deselect. However, you can save a selection as an alpha-channel mask so that your time-consuming work won’t belost and you can reuse the selection in this work session or a later one. You can even use alpha channels in other Photoshop image files.

To avoid confusing channels and layers, think of channels as containing an image’s color and selection information; think of layers as containing painting and effects.
