Chapter 10. Creating Layer and Channel Masks > Modifying Channel Mask Options

Modifying Channel Mask Options

Channel masks have default options that control how the mask looks and functions. Photoshop gives you the ability to change the default options of a channel mask. For example, you could change the default color from red to blue, or you could change the function of the channel mask from selection to spot color. Knowing you can change the mask options gives you more control over the final results.

Modify Channel Mask Options

Open a document.

Select the Channels palette.

Click the Channels Options button, and then click New Channel.

Enter a name for the new channel.

Click the option to define the mask color as the Masked Areas or Selected Areas.

Click the Color box, and then select a color from the Color Picker.

Enter an Opacity percentage value (1 to 100) for the color.

Click OK.
