About masks and alpha channels
When you select part of an image, the area that is not selected is masked, or protected from editing. So, when you create a mask, you isolate and protect areas of an image as you apply color changes, filters, or other effects to the rest of the image. You can also use masks for complex image editing such as gradually applying color or filter effects to an image.
To save a selection more permanently, you can store it as an alpha channel. The alpha channel stores the selection as an editable grayscale mask in the Channels panel. Once you store the selection as an alpha channel, you can reload it at any time or even load it into another image.
Create an alpha channel mask using current options
Click the New Channel button at the bottom of the Channels panel.
Paint on the new channel to mask out image areas.
Select areas of the image before you create the channel for the mask. Then paint on the channel to refine the mask.
Save and load selections
You can save any selection as a mask in a new or existing alpha channel and later reload the selection from the mask.
You can use a selection as a layer mask by loading the selection to make it active, then adding a new layer mask.
Save a selection to a new or existing channel
Use a selection tool to select the area or areas of the image you want to isolate.
Choose Select > Save Selection.
Specify the following in the Save Selection dialog box, and click OK:
Chooses a destination image for the selection. By default, the selection is placed in a channel in your active image. You can choose to save the selection to a channel in another open image with the same pixel dimensions or to a new image.
Chooses a destination channel for the selection. By default, the selection is saved in a new channel. You can choose to save the selection to any existing channel in the selected image or to a layer mask if the image contains layers.
If you’re saving the selection as a new channel, type a name for the channel in the Name text box.
If you’re saving the selection to an existing channel, select how to combine the selections:
Replaces the current selection in the channel.
Add to Channel
Adds the selection to the current channel contents.
Subtract From Channel
Deletes the selection from the channel contents.
Intersect With Channel
Keeps the areas of the new selection that intersect with the channel contents.
You can select the channel from the Channels panel to see the saved selection displayed in grayscale.
Load a saved selection from the Channels panel
You can reuse a previously saved selection by loading it into an image. You can also load the selection into an image after you finish modifying an alpha channel.
Do one of the following in the Channels panel:
- Select the alpha channel, click the Load Selection button at the bottom of the panel, and then click the composite color channel near the top of the panel.
- Drag the channel containing the selection you want to load onto the Load Selection button.
- Ctrl-click (Windows) or Command-click (Mac OS) the channel containing the selection you want to load.
- To add the mask to an existing selection, press Ctrl+Shift (Windows) or Command+Shift (Mac OS), and click the channel.
- To subtract the mask from an existing selection, press Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Command+Option (Mac OS), and click the channel.
- To load the intersection of the saved selection and an existing selection, press Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS), and select the channel.
Note:You can drag a selection from one open Photoshop image into another.
Fill a selection or layer with color
Choose a foreground or background color.
Select the area you want to fill. To fill an entire layer, select the layer in the Layers panel.
Choose Edit > Fill to fill the selection or layer. Or to fill a path, select the path, and choose Fill Path from the Paths panel menu.
In the Fill dialog box, choose one of the following options for Use, or select a custom pattern:
Foreground Color, Background Color, Black, 50% Gray, or White
Fills the selection with the specified color.
Note:If you fill a CMYK image using the Black option, Photoshop fills all the channels with 100% black. This may result in more ink than is allowable by the printer. For best results when filling a CMYK image, use the Foreground option with the foreground color set to an appropriate black.
Fills with a color you select from the Color Picker.
Specify the blending mode and opacity for the paint.
If you’re working in a layer and want to fill only areas containing pixels, choose Preserve Transparency.
Click the OK button to apply the fill.
To apply a foreground color fill only to the areas that contain pixels, press Alt+Shift+Backspace (Windows) or Option+Shift+Delete (Mac OS). This preserves the transparency of the layer. To apply a background color fill only to the areas that contain pixels, press Ctrl+Shift+Backspace (Windows) or Command+Shift+Delete (Mac OS).
Apply a gradient fillThe Gradient tool creates a gradual blend between multiple colors. You can choose from preset gradient fills or create your own.Note:You cannot use the Gradient tool with bitmap or indexed-color images.
Position the pointer in the image where you want to set the starting point of the gradient, and drag to define the ending point. To constrain the line angle to a multiple of 45°, hold down Shift as you drag.
To fill part of the image, select the desired area. Otherwise, the gradient fill is applied to the entire active layer.Select the Gradient tool . (If the tool isn’t visible, hold down the Paint Bucket tool.)
In the options bar, choose a fill from the wide gradient sample:
Note:The Neutral Density preset provides a helpful photographic filter for sunsets and other high-contrast scenes.
- Click the triangle next to the sample to pick a preset gradient fill.
- Click inside the sample to view the Gradient Editor. Select a preset gradient fill, or create a new gradient fill.
Select an option to determine how the starting point (where the mouse is pressed) and ending point (where the mouse is released) affect gradient appearance.Linear Gradient-Shades from the starting point to the ending point in a straight line.Radial Gradient-Shades from the starting point to the ending point in a circular pattern.Angular GradientShades in a counterclockwise sweep around the starting point.Reflected Gradient-Mirrors the same linear gradient on either side of the starting point.Diamond Gradient-Shades from the middle to the outer corners of a diamond pattern.
Do the following in the options bar:
- Specify a blending mode and opacity for the paint.
- To reverse the order of colors in the gradient fill, select Reverse.
- To create a smoother blend with less banding, select Dither.
- To use a transparency mask for the gradient fill, select Transparency.
