Hi all,

Is there a way to revert a layer that has been converted to mask using Rasterize to Mask into a normal layer?

Cheers,
Juan

Hi jc4d,
Was it a black and white layer originally? If so, select the layer, go to the channels panel, right-click the respective alpha channel (should have the same name as the layer) and select Create Greyscale Layer. If it was a colour layer do the following: go to History panel and move the slider to the left up the the point where the layer was selected (you should see the bounding box around it on canvas) just before you converted the layer to a mask  - do not click on canvas at this point to avoid losing all the history steps that come after -, then go to menu Edit ▸ Copy (to copy the selected layer), move the History slider back to the right end, to return to the current project state, go to menu Edit ▸ Paste. You should now have the layer back.

Thank you MEB for your fast response.

Indeed it was a black and white layer, and the workflow is pretty straight. Although is good to know how the procedure has to be if it is a colour layer.

I would suggest if possible to add a command to revert a mask into a normal layer since as you can see the workflow especially for colour layers is not smooth. Could this be feasible?

Cheers,
Juan
