Masked image looks different after export as PSD format

Recommended Posts


If any solution for my problem... cutout an image in AP but find that the layer mask appears differently in PS. The mask looks correct in PS Channel but no idea why some background still intact.

Yes I've checked the option for New layer with mask,  curiously, this problem doesn't occur when I first tried AP in quite early day, no idea if this problem comes for PS or AP.

Tried another image, same result... of course the cutout image works well within AP.

Ok, thank you. I'm logging this to be looked at. Meanwhile, instead of picking New layer with mask, select Mask instead from the Output dropdown, then duplicate the original pixel layer (image) manually and nest the mask to the duplicate (dragging the mask layer over the thumbnail of the duplicated pixel layer). this should open correctly in Photoshop. Let me know how it goes.
