Thanks for the help
Trying to get this to work..
- For starters, you'll probably be best painting colour and alpha images separately (or copy/paste and use greyscale for an easy alternative).
Hrm... what do you mean by color and alpha images?
- On the colour image, choose Masks->new->from image..
I do this, and I get something that looks convincingly like the luminosity (sp?) of the image. Good so far.
- Once you've got your mask loaded, choose Masks->save to alpha
Nothing happens at this point, except that I have to name a new selection.
- Finally, delete the mask Do not merge with the current layer though.
And.... it goes back to looking just as it did before I started.
Hope that gets you on your way..
I'm so close... maybe just one more push, eh? :-/
I was going to take screenshots to illustrate what I'm doing; then I found out that PSP doesn't want to take shots of itself for some reason.
