B&W image to alpha channel
Hi,

I have a B&W images. It's actually in RGB but all shades are gray. I would like to create an alpha channel whose values equal the brightness of each pixel.

How do I do that?

Thanks!

Sam

RE: B&W image to alpha channel
Thanks.

I tried the equivalent second approach, but I am not sure it worked. After I copy a channel by dragging (now I have "Blue Channel Copy") what makes it into the alpha channel?

Thanks again,

Sam
