Merging adjustment layers or editing them?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently recolouring some photos so I made a selection of a dress, then went to the Layer menu and selected "recolouring adjustment" from the "new adjustment layer" submenu. I did my edits but discovered that I left out a part of the dress.


In photoshop I would have edited the alpha or mask layer but here that seems to be uneditable? I see an alpha with a black and white image showing me my selection but I cant edit it.


The workaround I found was  to create a greyscale layer from my alpha channel, then do the same with the other one and combine these two followed by creating a new recolouring adjustment. While this works I refuse to believe that this is the right way to do it. Everything else is so simple, I must be doing this wrong.

Hi Geradvanschip,


You should be able to view your Adjustment layers mask by holding ALT and clicking it in the layers tab. You can then paint onto this using a black/white brush  :)
