10.34.  Show Layer Mask

Revision History
Revision $Revision: 1.3 $ 2006-08-16 scb

The Show Layer Mask command lets you see the layer mask better by turning the image invisible. When you click on the menu entry, a check is displayed next to it and the layer mask's thumbnail in the Layers Dialog is shown with a green border. The layer itself is not modified; you can turn it visible again later.

10.34.1.  Activating the Command

  • You can access this command from the image menubar through Layer->Mask->Show Layer Mask,

  • or by holding down the Alt key (Ctrl-Alt on some systems) and single-clicking on the layer mask's thumbnail in the Layers Dialog.

  • You can undo this action by unchecking the menu entry in the LayerMask submenu or by Alt-clicking (or Ctrl-Alt-clicking) again on the layer mask's thumbnail.
