Duplicate Layer Mask

Sometimes you may want to copy a created mask from one layer to another. Since you can't [Alt]-drag the masks in PSE, you need a special command.

  1. In the Layers panel, select the layer containing the pixel mask you want to copy.
  2. Open the Masks dialog.
  3. Apply the "Duplicate Layer Mask" command.
  4. In the dialog that appears, choose the target layer (fig. 1) and click "OK". If you want to copy the mask to all the layers check the "All Layers" checkbox.

In the screenshot 2, you can see the result of copying the mask from the "Layer 1" onto the "Layer 2".
