4.1.5 The Channels Menu

The Channels dialog, like the Layers dialog, has a hidden menu that can be displayed by right-clicking in the title area of the Channels Palette. This menu is shown in Figure  4.6(b).

As shown by the red arrows, many of the operations available in the Channels menu are directly accessible from the button bar. Most of the functions in the menu are organizational: New Channel, Raise Channel, Lower Channel, Duplicate Channel, and Delete Channel are all self-explanatory. Of particular importance is the Channel to Selection function, which is the inverse of the Save to Channel  function. Channel to Selection   creates a selection in the image window corresponding to the active mask in the Channels dialog.

The remaining functions in the Channels menu, Add to Selection,  Subtract From Selection,  and Intersect With Selection  are described in the following section.
