Gradient Map Opacity Not Working

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to use the Gradient Map adjustment as a way to turn a black-and-white pixel layer into a black-and-transparent (or white-and-transparent) layer. When I apply a 0% opacity value to one of the stops, the opacity is reflected on the gradient preview, but not on the target layer itself. Meanwhile, the color value works fine (both in the preview and the layer). Did I miss something, or is this a bug?


Using latest MAS version (1.1.2) on Yosemite.

Yes, seems there's something wrong with the Gradient Map Adjustment. I will get back to you later regarding this.


Meanwhile, there's a specific command to convert a black and white image to an opacity mask: Layer -> Rasterise to Mask. If you need to get the inverse result (the color that will be turned into transparency), apply an Invert Adjustment to the black and white image first and then Rasterise to Mask.
