Loading Channel Masks

Once you create a channel mask, and you can have up to 28 separate masks in one document, the next step is to use the masks. To save the channel mask all you have to do is save the document in a format that supports channels, such as Photoshop's native .psd format, or even the .tif format. The next time you open the document, your channel masks will be there. Deleting a channel mask is simple; just drag the channel mask over the Delete button, located at the bottom of the Channels palette, or select the channel mask you want to delete, and click the Delete button. However sooner or later, you're going to want to do more than just save or delete—you're going to want to use a channel mask. Using a channel mask involves a process of converting the mask back into a selection. It's an easy step, but necessary to complete the process from mask to selection.
