Apply one mask to multiple adjustment layers

Recommended Posts

I start tyo understand the concept of masks, and how to mask individual adjustments / layers. I was looking however for a way to have several adjustments (e.g. "levels" and "White Balance"), but then crate one mask that masks the two adjustments. Is that possible?

Hi @ApvdG

 

Try this:
Add a White Balance Adjustment layer and mask out the unwanted parts
Open the Channels panel
Right Click on "White Balance Adjustment Alpha" and select "Create Spare Channel"

Add a Levels Adjustment layer
Now right click on the spare channel and select "Load To  Levels Adjustment Alpha"

Thanks for your reply. It looks like there is not a simple intuitive way to do this... I tried what you proposed, but did not really succeed (I had two adjustments, created the spare channel having one of the two adjustments selected, then wanted to "load it" to the other adjustment, but "loading" was only offered fir the initial adjustment).

Add your Adjustment Layers so they're not nested. Then select them all, and Group them. Then apply a Mask to the Group of Adjustment Layers. The mask for the Group will affect all Adjustment Layers in that Group.
