Hi,

Is there a way or method to see the Layer Mask as a full image (pixel image) as opposed to just a thumbnail?

Regards,
Kevin

Click on the Quick Mask icon at the bottom left of the Tools pallet and the masked areas of your image will appear. Check Photoshop Help for more information.

Doc

PS Oops! That's for Selections... Never mind...

Hi Doc,

For whatever reason, when I press help, I am greeted with my Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 help screen, even though I am using CS2. I have registered copies of both PS Elements 4.0 and CS 2 on the PC. That's another challenge to sort through another day.

Regards,
Kevin

Here is a screen shot that reveals all:



Notice where I've circled the little box to the left of the background layer where I've toggled the visibility of the layer off. The photo on the left is the photo and the mask, and the photo on the right shows the full sized mask since I've toggled the visibility of the background layer to off.

Cheers,
rfs

Another option is to alt-click on the mask thumbnail (in windows, don't know about mac). This will show the mask itself in place of the image.

I use Snagit. I can set up a profile using it that will add the torn edge, effect, and ftp it directly to my website all more less automatically so that lends itself to fast screen shots.
